US doubts about the effectiveness of the “Bayraktar” aircraft located in Ukraine
The American “Breaking Defense” website revealed doubts about the effectiveness of the “Bayraktar” drones located in Ukraine.
The site added, in a report: “It is noted that the drones that Ukraine depends on do not come stamped with the words “Made in America”, and instead, Ukraine relies to a large extent on the Turkish TB2 Bayraktar drones.”
He pointed out that the “Bayraktar” plane cannot carry enough weapons to destroy targets that the Ukrainian army seeks to eliminate, as it can carry only 150 kilograms of weapons, which affects the effectiveness of the “Bayrakdar” planes, which has a range of 150 kilometers in a vast country. Like Ukraine.
The administration of US President Biden has announced its intention to deliver 100 of the “Switchblades” to Ukraine, but what bears this name is a hover bomb, not a drone, meaning that it is removed from existence after one use.
As a signatory to the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) – an entirely voluntary agreement to limit the export of technology related to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) – the United States severely restricts its exports of drones.
