Turkish Unmanned Fighter Jet Passes System Identification Test

Turkey’s first indigenous unmanned fighter aircraft successfully passed the system identification test during its second flight.

The fast drone fighter jet, Kızılelma, represents a significant expansion of capabilities for slow-moving reconnaissance and missile-carrying drones.

The autonomously manoeuvring Kızılelma can operate in tandem with piloted aircraft and may carry air-to-air missiles

The unmanned fighter jet is projected to conduct a multitude of military actions, such as strategic offensives, close air support (CAS), missile attacks, suppression of enemy air defences (SEAD) and destruction of enemy air defences (DEAD).

It is projected to be capable of flying for 5 hours and reaching speeds of up to 800 kph (500 mph or Mach 0.64).
