Turkey will soon send Ukraine a surveillance and reconnaissance system Bayraktar TB2, President Petro Poroshenko wrote on Facebook.

Ukraine and Turkey have signed an agreement in this regard.

Bayraktar TB2 is a medium altitude and long-range tactical unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) system manufactured by Baykar Makina for the Turkish Armed Forces.

This new UAV can be equipped with modern high-precision missile weapons for the destruction of armored vehicles, engineering structures and fortifications, as well as marine targets.

The agreement between the State Company Ukrspetsexport, which is part of Ukroboronprom, and the Turkish company Baykar Makina, is part of measures undertaken “to expand the military-technical cooperation between Ukraine and Turkey,” Poroshenko said.

“It fully corresponds to the strategic course of Ukraine towards the Alliance (NATO)- its standards and the open world market of armament, which successfully integrates the Ukrainian defense industrial complex.”
