As it will be remembered, at the beginning of April 2021, "Karabakh Medal" was given to Baykar Defense Technical Manager Selçuk Bayraktar, Chairman of the Board of Directors Özdemir Bayraktar and General Manager Haluk Bayraktar by the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.
During his visit to Azerbaijan, Selcuk Bayraktar gave some important information about Bayraktar TB3 SİHA in an interview with İCTİMAİ TV, one of the local television channels of Azerbaijan. Bayraktar stated that the TB3 SİHA “platform” will weigh approximately 1.200 kilograms, and said, “We are also developing an aircraft called Bayraktar TB3, which is unique in that class that lands / takes off on the aircraft carrier and in other words, lands and takes off from the platforms of the ships. Its wings are folded, it lands on the aircraft carrier, it can carry a little heavier 1200 kilograms, heavier ammunition. " made statements.
Another official statement regarding the Bayraktar TB3 SİHA platform belongs to Defense Industry President İsmail Demir. In an interview he gave to NTV in March 2021, Demir stated that a special variant of Bayraktar TB2 SİHA systems will be deployed to TCG ANATOLIA and said, “The UAV that lands / takes off in Anatolia, TB2s and other fixed wings platforms are in question. Making Anatolia an SİHA ship is on the agenda. " he had made statements.
In the process of transforming TCG ANADOLU into an armed unmanned aerial vehicle (SİHA) ship, Bayraktar TB30 SİHA platform between 50 and 3 will be deployed with foldable wings. Bayraktar TB3 SİHA systems will be able to take off and land using the deck of TCG Anadolu. It is stated that at least 10 Bayraktar TB3 SİHAs can be used in operations simultaneously with the command center to be integrated into TCG ANADOLU.
