Türkiye’s Baykar starts construction of Bayraktar drone factory in Ukraine – Minister Kamyshin

The Turkish company Baykar has begun constructing a plant to produce Bayraktar attack drones in Ukraine, according to Oleksandr Kamyshin, Ukrainian Minister for Strategic Industries, who stated it on the national telethon, according to UNIAN.

“The plant has started to be built in reality, not just in the memorandum. This is exactly that large Bayraktar plant, which was agreed upon several years ago, then there were stoppages and scandals. Today, the construction of this plant is starting, we have moved to real steps,” he said.

On 8 July, the Strategic Industries Minister signed a new memorandum with the Turkish Ministry of Industry and Technology to develop capacities and capabilities to produce various types of UAVs. According to Kamyshyn, it was about other production facilities that could not be discussed at the time, Ekonomichna Pravda reported.

In April, Ukraine signed three new contracts with Baykar. No details of the agreements were made public.

In September 2022, Baykar CEO Haluk Bayraktar said the company was going to produce unmanned fighter Bayraktar Kizilelma, Bayraktar TB2, and Bayraktar Akıncı strike drones in Ukraine.
