ANKARA, (BM) – Turkey’s use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in Syria and Libya is unprecedented in its scale and effectiveness, learned citing MiddleEAST telegram channel.

The publication notes that Turkey has long begun to use drones against Kurdish military formations, but it’s a completely different thing when “combat testing of UAV strike in a war with regular armies (also supported by foreign mercenaries and air defense of the allies) takes place”.

According to the telegram channel, the destruction of a large number of armored vehicles and manpower of the Syrian army and Haftar rebel units impressed potential buyers of UAVs and made experts talk about a new era in the use of combat drones in Middle East conflicts.

So in March 2020, Tunisia seriously announced the purchase of Turkish Anka-S UAVs.

The Turkish army does not stand still: new UAVs are being tested. According to the telegram channel, it is already safe to say that Turkey has become one of the leaders in the production and use of UAVs, the club of which includes the USA, Great Britain, China and Israel.
