World A- A A+

The Spanish have joined the growing chorus of global voices praising Turkey’s armed drones with a new media report calling the UAVs “game-changers” after the decisive role Ankara’s unmanned fleet played in recent global conflicts, Eurasia Diary reports citing Yeni Safak.

In a new report titled “Turkish drones are conquering the world,” published by Spanish newspaper El Periódico, the author noted that Ankara’s combat UAVs “stopped the Assad regime’s attacks in Syria in just a few days,” while also highlighting that Turkey’s drone fleet forced Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar to sign a ceasefire agreement in the war-torn country.

“Dozens of Russian anti-aircraft systems were destroyed, in addition to a large number of tank and artillery parts. There was a secret to Turkey’s success. A weapon that has proven to hold the key to the war: state-of-the-art drones,” the report went on to point.

“These systems are effective because they use guided projectile systems, in addition to electronic warfare systems in conjunction with drones, ” Michaël Tanchum, a professor at the University of Navarra, was quoted as saying.

The report also underlined how Turkey’s Bayraktar TB2 drones served to tip the balance in Azerbaijan's favor in the Karabakh conflict last fall.

“Turkey's efficient use of unmanned aerial vehicles effectively helped change the concept of war,” concluded the report.

Turkey’s drone strategy has garnered worldwide praise, prompting many countries to reassess their defense strategies in light of Ankara’s recent success in altering the balance on the battlefield in Libya, Syria and Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Bayraktar TB2 armed UAV was developed and manufactured by Turkish defense company Baykar Technologies.

It has been used by the Turkish Armed Forces and Turkey's Security Directorate since 2015, most recently credited for Azerbaijan’s military success in the Karabakh conflict.
