Bayraktar UAV production will be launched in the short term – it is a matter of months, not years. That’s according to Ukraine’s Ambassador to the Republic of Turkey, Vasyl Bodnar, who spoke with RFE/RL’s Ukrainian bureau, Ukrinform reported.

“In fact, this is probably a matter of months, not years. And work is already underway to allocate the appropriate land plot to begin substantive operations on the construction of this maintenance and repair center. Also, on a parallel track, the work is underway to create production capacities and launch Bayraktar production in Ukraine,” Bodnar said.

According to the envoy, the pace of the ongoing work is quite fast.

“The information I have speaks of the full-scale production from scratch of drones which could be used for both covering the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and supplying to third-country markets … And production Turkey, I believe, is at full capacity. Therefore, additional full-cycle production facilities are also in the interest of the Turkish side to develop new markets and jointly conduct tests and later, perhaps, train some foreign colleagues to master this technology and jointly shape the defense field,” the diplomat explained.
