"We cannot be proud enough, our all-national UAV hit the bull's-eye with tears in our eyes." Along with these tests for the armed drone, the "qualification" stage is thereby completed. Over the next months, Bayraktar drones are planned for use by the Turkish Armed Forces after the completion of all required tests," Undersecretary for Defense Industries Prof. Dr. İsmail Demir said on his Twitter account. In the following months, the UAV is planned to be used as an armed platform as a possible necessary move against Daesh which continues to launch attacks on targets across the border in Turkey, most recently in the city of Kilis.
