Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) is likely to develop a supersonic drone capable of flying at 380kmph.

"We are working on a supersonic UAV called Göksungur," Temel Kotil, CEO, TAI, told Anadolu Agency at the recently concluded IDEF 2019 exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey.

The company unveiled its new twin-engine powered "Aksungur," a UAV that is capable of flying at the speed of 180-kmph, at the exhibition.

"TAI manufactured two Aksungurs for test flights and will deliver them this year to the Turkish Armed Forces," he added.

Aksungur has a 750-kg carrying capacity, a sharp upgrade from the 200-kg capacity of the earlier model, Kotil said.
