Türkiye develops new 'Azab' kamikaze drone

    REGION  25 March 2023 - 10:13

    Turkish tech firm Robit Technology has developed a new multipurpose kamikaze drone called 'Azab' with a long-range flight distance. 

    The delta-winged platform, which has a high payload capacity, passed all flight tests successfully, according to Anadolu Agency.

    Firing tests of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are planned to be carried out in the near future.

    "We have done all the flight tests. We move on to ammunition tests. We will carry out ammunition tests in the coming months," Selcuk Firat, product director at Robit Technology, told Anadolu.

    The ammunition tests are expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of this year, Firat said.

    "We are ready for production. We will be able to meet future orders," he added.

    Noting that different types of warheads can be integrated with the Azab drone, Firat said it has two versions with wingspans of 2 meters (6.5 feet) and 1.5 meters (4.9 feet).

    "The Azab with a 2-meter wingspan can carry up to a 15-kilogram (33-pound) payload," he said.

    The UAV has a 200-kilometer (124-mile) communication range and destroys targets with GPS coordinates provided.
