"We have also completed the first export contract of Bayraktar Akıncı UCAV. Within the scope of the contract, we will deliver Bayraktar Akıncı UCAVs and ground systems in 2023,” Baykar General Manager Haluk Bayraktar disclosed this to government-owned Anadolu Agency (AA) Sunday.
He did not specify the country to which the Akinci drone was exported, neither the number of drones or its value. However, pointers are that Ukraine, which supplies engines to the Akinci drone, may well be the first customer of the new drone given its current stand-off with Russia.
