Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA's flight tests continue. High and Medium Altitude Asymmetric Propulsion Test has also been successfully completed.
Baykar Defense reported on its official Twitter account that the flight tests of AKINCI TİHA are continuing. In the post: “Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA's flight tests continue. High and Medium Altitude Asymmetric Propulsion Test has also been successfully completed. " statements were included.
The second prototype of Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA (Attack Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), developed by BAYKAR with domestic and national facilities, continues the flight tests successfully, while the third prototype counts the days for the first flight.

The tests of AKINCI TİHA are carried out with two prototypes. AKINCI PT-1 (Prototype 1.) sailed at an altitude of 30.000 feet within the scope of the High Altitude System Identification Test. The successfully completed flight took 3 hours and 22 minutes.
Akıncı TİHA to take office in 2021
AKINCI TİHA, which will take office in 2021, will have unique features in its class. in the examination of the TEKNOFEST Rocket Competition held in Salt Lake Turkey Technology Team Foundation (T3 Foundation) Chairman of the Board of Trustees and bikers Technical Director Selcuk Bayraktar, Baykur developed by the local and national facility Bayraktar Raiders offensive Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in 2021 He gave the good news that he will take office. Bayraktar said:
“I hope Akıncı will take office in 2021. The second prototype is finished. We are currently producing its third prototype and its mass production product, Akıncı. Development activities continue. Qualification and test flights are currently underway. I hope it will be possible to start working after delivery in 2021. This is our goal. "
"AKINCI has features that are not found in any unmanned aerial vehicle in its class."
Selçuk Bayraktar stated that Bayraktar Akıncı TİHA has features that are not found in any unmanned aerial vehicle in its class. Bayraktar said, “Akıncı will be given features that are not found in almost any unmanned aerial vehicle in its class. All this will be thanks to the ecosystem of our national defense industry. Roketsan, organizing the rocket competition here today, is developing its important ammunition and missile. TÜBİTAK SAGE develops different technology systems. Aselsan is making his radar in front of him. In fact, like Teknofest, Akıncı is also a team game. It will gain those capabilities with all subsystems. The systems we have developed are completely in the direction of autonomous flight, in the direction of artificial intelligence computers. Aircraft, in a sense, is a robot airplane. Ammunition systems and electronic card systems are the works of our national defense industry. " said.
