Pakistan and Turkey recently signed agreement to jointly produce Anka Long-Endurance Drones. Pakistan Navy recently showed interest in Anka-S Medium-Altitude Long-Endurance (MALE) Drone made by Turkish Aerospace Industries.


Anka-S is a Satellite Communications (SATCOM)-Equipped Variant of the drone. It has an endurance of 24 hours and when using a line-of-sight (LOS) radio datalink it has a range of 200km. It has a service ceiling of 30,000 ft and is capable of carrying 200 kg in electro-optical (EO) and infrared (IR) equipment and/or precision-guided air-to-surface munitions. It performs day and night, all-weather reconnaissance, target detection / identification and intelligence missions with its EO/IR and SAR payloads, featuring autonomous flight capability including Automatic Take-off and Landing.

Its ordnance options include the Roketsan UMTAS anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), Roketsan CİRİT laser-guided air-to-surface rocket, and the Roketsan MAM-L (a miniature air-to-ground missile). It also uses the Aselsan Common Aperture Targeting System (CATS) as its EO/IR turret with laser target designation / illumination capabilities. The Anka Drone has now evolved into a modular platform with synthetic aperture radar, precise weapons and satellite communication.

UAV operations are supported by highly sophisticated ground control system with complete redundancy, developed by a domestic defence company Savronik. Whole mission segments of the air vehicle can be managed, monitored and controlled by a GCS. A pre-programmed mission plan can be loaded before the flight begins or can be altered during the flight. All the imagery stream of the payloads can be displayed and recorded in real time and all the payloads can be controlled from the GCS. ATOLS allows the air vehicle to perform its operation without operator intervention, including the most critical phases which are landing and take-off.

In TIES, valuable intelligence information can be obtained by the analysis of bulky imagery data. TIES operators can initiate intelligence missions prior to or during flight. Refined information flows to the upper command layer in order to assist the headquarters to monitor a network of TUAV systems and benefit from the gathered intelligence information. Another interface of the TUAV system is the RVT, with which other friendly units who are close to the target area can utilize the real time imagery that TUAV air vehicle broadcasts.

In past there was news, Pakistan is interested in Bayraktar drone, now this is an upgrade!

General Rahil Sharif once tested local drone... after that no news about it's application and fielding.
