Turkish Aerospace (TUSAŞ) presented its aerial platforms at an aerospace demonstration day. TurDef has interviewed Nevzat Polat, TUSAŞ, Systems Engineering Manager at Unmanned Air Systems. Polat stated that ANKA-3’s primary mission would be deep strike missions because it is a stealth aircraft with high payload capacity.
ANKA can launch Super Şimşek and SOM-J, or long-range ammunitions. Super Şimşek is a derivative of the Şimşek target drone. This time it suits 11 different roles with its modularity. It will, however, be used as a decoy.
Anka-3 is currently on taxi tests and is expected to perform its maiden flight in two weeks.
