Unmanned aerial vehicle model Vestel Karayel was designed by Turkish experts in the field of aerospace technology in 2013 year. The new unmanned aerial vehicle was intended for subsequent use in the Turkish Armed Forces to perform tasks such as gathering and processing intelligence, patrol and observation work, evaluation of the situation in the field of battle, the adjustment of artillery fire and others.

Due to the fact that the Turkish aircraft designers have minimized the design factor of a new unmanned aerial vehicle project drone Vestel Karayel could quickly realize - in 2016, the device has successfully made its first flight, so that, after a series of small improvements will go into series production, and later it was sent in the armed forces.

Turkish UAV Vestel Karayel has a sufficiently large size of its fuselage, comparable to the size of manned light-engine aircraft such as the drone fuselage length is 6.5 meters, while the wingspan is 10,5 meters, however, given the fact that the drone carries intelligence operations at an altitude of about 6.5 km, this factor makes it unobtrusive.

Drone model Vestel Karayel has a sufficiently powerful power plant, which is able to develop traction in 97 hp, which in turn enables the system to perform fly at speeds of up to 150 km \ h., While the maximum duration of stay in the autonomous air is 20 hours.

UAV Vestel Karayel is equipped with electro-optical and infrared cameras mounted in the turret is located at the bottom of the drone.
