In Ukraine, the latest versions of Bayraktar TB2 are used

In Ukraine, the latest variants of Bayraktar TB2 attack drones have been spotted.

Turkey has delivered its latest Bayraktar TB2 attack unmanned aerial vehicles to the Ukrainian military. The drones have been further upgraded to detect targets and carry out reconnaissance at distances in excess of 50 kilometers. Moreover, these drones were launched into mass production only in November 2021.

Turkey officially announced that it does not supply weapons to Ukraine, stressing that Kyiv independently concludes contracts with private Turkish companies. As it turned out, among the attack drones recently delivered to Ukraine, there are new options equipped with Aselsan CATS optoelectronic systems. This is evidenced by a fragment from the video using the Bayraktar TB2 drone in the Kherson region, where you can clearly see that the drone is adjusting strikes from a distance of more than 48 kilometers.

A little earlier, it became known that Aselsan CATS optoelectronic systems began to be installed on Turkish Bayraktar TB2 attack drones only in November 2021, the reason for which was Canada's refusal to supply Turkey with its similar optoelectronic systems.

Experts draw attention to the fact that the distance of 48 kilometers makes it difficult to timely detect Turkish drones by air defense systems, however, even despite this fact, the Russian Ministry of Defense reports almost a daily defeat.
