AKINCI combat drone, developed by Turkish firm Baykar, fired a IHA-230 supersonic cruise missile capable of hitting targets at a distance up to 140km.

The test firing of the missile, Türkiye's first air-to-ground supersonic missile developed by Türkiye's defense giant Roketsan, was completed successfully, Baykar said in a statement.

The 140 km range supersonic missile will enable the AKINCI drone it to fire from a stand-off distance while remaining hidden from radar by operating from low altitude.

The UAV-230 Missile, fired by Bayraktar AKINCI in the Sinop Firing Range, hit the point 140 kilometers away on the Black Sea with a direct strike.
