The Turkish Government announced yesterday that they are willing to take delivery of six of the ten Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) reconnaissance systems purchased from Israeli companies. The six systems passed performance tests and this will allow Israel to ship them to Turkey. Another four systems that were part of the contract will have to pass similar tests to be delivered.

Israel has been progressively trying to sell equipment to foreign customers and has had some success with Turkey and India. This contract was let five years ago and was a major coup for Elbit and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) when they won it. Some development issues have led to the long delivery period. Israel’s defense establishment hopes to garner further sales of such equipment as these UAV demonstrate their capabilities for Turkey.
