Latvia may be the next NATO and European Union member state to purchase drones from Turkey. Latvia’s Minister of Defence Artis Pabriks paid a visit to a production centre for Turkey’s armed drones near Ankara, Turkish drone manufacturer Baykar.

“It is in the interests of Latvia to promote constructive cooperation on mutually important issues with Turkey and its military industry. Turkey is our partner in NATO and I am sure that our cooperation will help strengthen Latvian defense capabilities as well as our local military industry,” said Pabriks.

Drone Bayraktar TB2 is a medium altitude and long-range tactical unmanned aerial vehicle system capable of remotely controlled autonomous flight operations. The drone is monitored and controlled by aircrew in the Ground Control Station, including weapons employment.

not only that I'm glad Latvia is expanding their defence capabilities
