BOYGA Rotary Wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Carrying Mortar Ordnance
Working in the field of Fixed and Rotary Wing, Mini Strike UAV Systems and Unmanned Systems for Reconnaissance and Surveillance, STM announced the Rotary Wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle BOYGA Carrying Mortar Ammunition in August 2021. Following the Rotary Wing Striker UAV KARGU and the Fixed Wing Portable Intelligent Ammunition System ALPAGU, BOYGA also joined the STM product family.
BOYGA can drop 81 mm mortar ammunition on the target, thanks to its improved ballistic estimation algorithm, within the planned mission through the Ground Control Station. BOYGA's ammunition, whose ammunition system integration was carried out in cooperation with MKE, was adapted according to the release mechanism.
