The Ukrainian Navy plans to acquire Bayraktar TB2 drones from Turkey for the Navy.

“Bayraktar with improved tactical and technical characteristics and increased operational range will be used in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov,” said the Navy’s commander Rear Admiral Oleksiy Neizhpapa in an interview with Radio Liberty.

"We use them to monitor the surface situation, to support the forces both on the shore and at sea," Neizhpapa said.

Ukraine carried out test flights of Bayraktar drones in November 2020. In the following month, it ordered these combat drones along with MILGEM ADA-class corvettes.

Kyiv reportedly wants to acquire 50 Bayraktar TB2s and set up a large-scale assembly line for these deadly drones in the country.
