Turkey’s Baykar Defense has announced a $370 million contract to deliver an undisclosed number of armed drones to Kuwait. The move is set to further boost the country’s international reputation as a leading manufacturer of military drones.
Baykar Defense has seen its profile rise significantly in recent years, due to the success of its TB2 drone in several conflicts. The drone has been used in Syria, Libya, Azerbaijan and Ukraine, and has been credited with helping Ukrainian forces to successfully repel Russian forces in the region.
The new contract with Kuwait is expected to help Baykar Defense to expand its presence in the Middle East and to continue its development of cutting-edge drones. It will also provide the company with a valuable source of income, as it seeks to further its position as one of the world’s leading drone manufacturers.
