After launch, the first rocket intercepts the Turkish drone with its thermal sensor and monitors the impending movement. When the rocket is expected to land on the drone, it changes course and the Bajrakts do not damage TB2. Another similar thing happened on another rocket.
Russian military experts have explained why the Turkish drone “did not survive” both missiles, despite a successful intervention, Dnevny Awas reports.
In their opinion, the reason is simple, Bajraktar TB2 has a great system for electronic warfare. When the missiles approached the drone at the optimal distance, it activated its defenses and “lit” the electronic steering board. This automatically means that the heat sensor is no longer working and the rocket does not see the target.
The Bajraktar TB2 is a Turkish unmanned aerial vehicle capable of medium altitude, long range remote control and autonomous flight operations.
It is manufactured by the Turkish company Bajkar, mainly for the Turkish Air Force. The drone is being monitored and controlled by a team at the Ground Control Station, including the use of weapons via the Turkat satellite.
Selkuk Bajraktar, a former student at the American University of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was primarily responsible for the development of the Turkish aircraft.
