Turkey handed over to Poland the last batch of its Bayraktar TB2 drones

The Polish Armed Forces received the fourth batch of Bayraktar TB2 reconnaissance-strike unmanned aerial systems.

This is the last batch of these drones, which were delivered as part of of the contract that was signed three years ago.

In the fourth set, the Polish military directly received six drones, three ground control stations, sensors, weapons, as well as the necessary spare parts. .

Poland signed a contract for the supply of four Bayraktar TB2 complexes as early as 2021, the country's army received 24 of these drones. The amount of the contract was 270 million dollars, at the same time it was reported that the contract should be completed by the end of 2024, so it can be noted that the drones were eventually delivered ahead of the approved deadlines.

In the same year it was reported that the Polish WB Group is in talks with Baykar about the possibility of arming the Bayraktar TB2 with Warmate LT barrage ammunition. Poland received the first delivery of six drones and equipment in the fall of 2022, the second — in the spring of 2023, the third — in the fall of the same year.

Earlier, the Maldives became the next operator of Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones, and has already received the first batch, becoming a country in which there are more drones than armored vehicles.

Also earlier on the 25th Albania became the operator of these reconnaissance and strike drones, which apparently received the first batch of three drones and a control station.

This year, Romania should receive its first Bayraktar TB2, which a year ago for $300 million ordered six complexes with 18 drones. The Romanian army should receive all drones by the end of 2025.
