For the first time in the world, a swarm concept attack was carried out with the IDA-UAV joint operation!

A test firing was carried out in Mersin for the Kamikaze İDA Albatros, which was developed by ASELSAN with local and national resources and allows the explosive contained in it to detonate by hitting enemy targets by moving at high speed on water.

As part of the test, Albatros, which can move in a swarm of 8, carried out an attack on the target ship. One of the Albatros Kamikaze İDA swarm, which had ammunition belonging to ROKETSAN, hit the target ship and exploded.

Within the scope of the applied scenario, unmanned marine vehicles were directed to the target detected by Bayraktar TB2. Thus, for the first time in the world, the IDA swarm kamikaze attack concept was demonstrated with the IDA-UAV joint operation.
