Romania is buying the TB-2 drone of Turkish Bayraktar, known as the most advanced military drone in the world. Turkey said on Thursday that Romania is going to buy 18 Bayraktar drones for 299.6 million US dollars. Bayraktar TB-2 is an attack drone made in Turkey. It was designed by Seljuk Bayraktar. Bayraktar means flag bearer in Turkish. It was originally designed for the Turkish Air Force. Romania’s defense ministry said the country’s parliament approved the Turkish purchase of these drones. Bayraktar’s production of the TB2 was encouraged by the US banning the export of armed drones to Turkey. Bayraktar’s TB-2 made its first flight in August 2014. It first fired the missile on 18 December 2015. In 2018, it sold the first six drones to the Qatari military. Later that same year, Turkey signed an agreement to sell 12 aircraft and 3 ground control stations to the Ukrainian military worth $69 million. Ukraine will receive all drones by 2019. Kiev is using these drones very effectively in the war with Russia. Anadolu.
