Turkey plans to kick-off serial production of its vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) Cargo UAV next year.

“A contract has been signed with the Turkish Aviation and Space Industry (TAI) for the VTOL Cargo UAV project. We aim to start the serial production of the Cargo UAV system in 2021,” Ismail Demir, Turkey’s President of Defense Industries (SSB) tweeted Monday.

The drone is designed to provide logistics support to soldiers in battlefield. It can remain in the air for an hour and has useful load capacity of 50kg, Demir claims.

“We continue our work on the system that will carry 150 kg of useful load in our projects,” he added.
