According to Ukraine’s Defense Ministry, the Ukrainian Navy has the first Bayraktar TB2 drone from Turkish defense manufacturer Baykar in its possession already. The arrival was announced on July 15 via the ministry’s official Twitter account. The drone, along with mobile control terminals and spare parts, will be posted in the Ukrainian Navy’s 10th Naval Aviation Brigade in Mykolaiv after passing the testing process. In 2019, Baykar stated that it had received a $69 million contract with Ukraine to deliver six TB2 combat UAVs. The transaction, according to Turkish officials at the time, included ammo for the armed drones.
