The second prototype of Turkey's locally-made smart combat drone was successfully tested in northwestern Turkey, its Istanbul-based manufacturer said. The drone dubbed Bayraktar Akıncı Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) had a flight time of 62 minutes, manufacturer Baykar Makina said in a statement. 'Our drone successfully completed all the test phases,' Selçuk Bayraktar, the chief technology officer, was quoted as saying. Last December, the drone completed its first test flight and stayed in the air for 16 minutes. Earlier this year in May, the drone landed in the Çorlu Airport Base Command in Tekirdağ province for tests. The drone's third prototype is being integrated at the manufacturer's research center and the first delivery is planned for end of this year. The third prototype will be tested in Çorlu after the integration process is completed. The first prototype made its second flight on Jan. 10. This particular drone can fly for 24 hours, has a 40,000-feet service ceiling, 20-meter (65-feet) wingspan, and capacity for carrying 1,350-kilogram (2,976-pound) of useful load. It will provide high flight safety with its fully automatic flight control and triple-redundant auto-pilot systems.
