Turkey used a Ukrainian engine to create the supersonic stealth Bayraktar

ANKARA ($1=18.17 Turkish Liras) — Baykar has completed the assembly of the second prototype of the Bayraktar Kizilelma jet attack drone. This was announced by Selcuk Bayraktar from the Baykar company.

“We assembled the 2nd serial prototype of Kizilelma, which we prepared for the Samsun exhibition,” said Selcuk Bayraktar. The first prototype was completed in June 2022. The first flights of both prototypes are expected in 2023.

Bayraktar Kizilelma is a jet supersonic stealth airborne UAV. The drone is developed under the MIUS [Muharip İnsansız Uçak Sistemi or Unmanned Combat Aircraft System or UCAS in English] project. The new UAV was presented on August 4, 2021. A year after the Bayraktar Kizilelma reached the prototype stage.

According to the data provided by the company, the UAV will have an operating height of 12,000 m. The UAV will have also take-off weight of 5.5 tons. The Bayraktar’s payload will be 1.5 tons. The drone will carry out one ton ammo.

While MIUS-A will be near the supersonic with the Ukrainian AI-25TLT engine, MIUS-B will be supersonic with the Ukrainian AI-322F engine and the Turkish TEI TF-6000. MIUS-B will have a 2.5 times more powerful engine, which significantly distinguishes it from MIUS-A in terms of technical characteristics.

Approximate characteristics

It is assumed that the unmanned aerial vehicles of the MIUS project will be launched from the universal landing ship TCG Anadolu [L-400] without the help of a catapult system.

Approximate characteristics of the Bayraktar Kizilelma are a maximum speed of 900 km/h, a cruising speed of 740 km/h, and a combat range of 930 km. This combat drone will be able to stay in the air for about 5 hours at a maximum operating altitude of 10,700 meters.
