On March 18, the Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) shared the first photo of the stealth Anka-3 jet-powered combat drone.
In the photo, the Anka-3, which features a flying-wing design, can be seen carrying two TAI ŞİMŞEK target drones on external hardpoints most likely for tests. The drone was developed in light of the experience gained from the ANKA-1 and 2, Aksungur, combat drones which have more traditional designs.
TAI didn’t share much information about the Anka-3. However, SavunmaSanayiST.com said that the drone will have a maximum take-off weight of seven tons.
The Anka-3 was mainly developed to carry out deep pinpoint strikes as well as suppression and destruction of enemy air defenses missions. The drone is expected to make its first flight in the second quarter of this year.
The design of the Anka-3 can be compared to that of the United States Northrop Grumman X-47B, Russia’s Sukhoi S-70 Okhotnik-B and China’s Hongdu GJ-11.
In the last few years, Turkey became one of the world’s key developers and manufacturers of reconnaissance and combat drones.
Taking into account the difficulties that major powers faced while developing their stealth drones, TAI will not likely complete the development of the Anka-3 for another few years. It is still unclear if Turkey is looking to export the drone in the future.
This is where you get it wrong with Turkey. Because Russia didn’t get it doesn’t mean Turkey won’t get it. You’ll be surprised to see this drone enter service in about a year from now.
Turkey should stop the anti-Greek actions and focus on the real enemy.
Turkey itself is the real enemy, it has been so for centuries ever since constantinople fell to the islmaic horde and alter on turned into the genocidal ottomans and now into wannabe genocidal ottomans killing christians everywhere while iditos in EU pay them for it.
They kill eastern christians what was allways common interest between ottomans and the vaticans/ western europe. So yes they pay them to do what is in their interest despite them obvoiusly never admitting. The vaticans supported what the nazis did in ww2 but will never admit it in croatia a catholic priest was a close associate of their nazi leader pavelic.
Back then, Ottomans weren’t that bad but later with Kemal they became.
They weren’t that bad to greeks and armenians cause you both were domesticated obediant citizens. But ask everyone else especially at the borderlands of the ottoman empire and they will tell you different.
That’s by the way why they were so brutal to those two groups in the end cause they never expected an uprising from you and felt betrayed.
Janissaries did the same that ukrainians do now. Turks took away kids from families in the Balkans and raised them as fierce warriors, punishers of their own parents. Ukros – are ethnic russian people with washed brain, same as janissaries. Meanwhile in Russia all non-christians parts of population wasn’t allowed to serve in army. There were just few separate squads like the Wild division consisted of volunteer highlanders from Caucasus and kalmyk cavalry, which came through western Europe and entered Paris in 1813. Nobody took kids nor adults of ethnic minorities, they were autonomous inside Russia, especially Finland with their own police and money. Compare this with the Osmanian empire or Sweden — ethnic finns were 3rd class people in Sweden.
İf you love churches, there are a lot empty churches in west-europe. All for sale.
How long until they sell it to ukraine to kill more russians while putin still thinks erdog is his friend?
Turkey “ we will release millions of refugees into Europe”. Nuff said!
Bring them in!
Germany wants human livestock, just for being more and more for being more sake.
another Bayraktar .. hehe

Instead of playing war games for profit maybe the turkeys can use it to find and dig out the bodies of the thousands of missing dead after their best buddy HAARPED them in the big shake.
“The design of the Anka-3 can be compared to that of the United States Northrop Grumman X-47B, Russia’s Sukhoi S-70 Okhotnik-B and China’s Hongdu GJ-11.”
Or “Horten 229” from 1940s, or B-2, but much lighter, looks like 5-7 tons of full flight mass, close to GJ-11 (~10 tons), CH-7 (13 tons). X-47B (~20 tons) and S-70 (~20-25 tons) are belonging to different class of heavy jet UAV. Looks like “Anka-3” carry its weapon load on pylons, while other mentioned UAVs have internal placement.
