Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) announced that the development of the twin-engine model of the Anka-3 unmanned aerial vehicle has begun.

TAI announced that the ANKA-3 has a high subsonic speed, but the development of the twin-engine supersonic ANKA-3 aircraft has already begun and will accompany the KAAN fighter jet.

In the future, the TAI ANKA-3 unmanned aerial vehicle will fly with 2 TEI-TF10000 turbofan engines.

Is there a twin-engine UAV in the form of a flying wing? Could it be a world first?

Lockheed Martin POLECAT is a twin engine UCAV with 2 × Williams FJ44-3E turbofan engines

but its an experimental project

Flying-wing stealth UCAVs in the World

USA : X-47B
UK : TARANIS
France : NEURON
Russia : S-70
China : CH-7
Turkiye : ANKA-3

All flying wing stealth UCAVs have single Engine


ANKA-3 will be the first one in the world that will enter service with twin engine variant


POLECAT using 2 x 3.000 lbf turbofan engines
ANKA-3 will use 2 x 10.000 lbf turbofan engines

instead of twin engine we need to make a f414 class turbofan and go with it. two engine means more headache. these machines should be easy to maintain and high combat readiness rate. and i fail to understand how a flying wing would go supersonic? new anka shape should be different than that we assume.

Don't limit yourself to what has been done so far.

Anka-4 will be an air superiority aircraft with vertical stabilizers. The twin-engine Anka-3 will probably be a deep attack aircraft that will fly high. The twin engine has some advantages at high altitudes.

We don't know the shape. Only a description of engines and role as wingman.

First UCAV in Aviation History to Perform Barrel Roll


"Autonomous Barrel Roll" is an acrobatic maneuver performed by an aircraft by rotating around its own axis. Although this maneuver is usually seen in piloted aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) require advanced technology and control systems to perform such a movement autonomously


Autonomous Control: This maneuver is performed by the TB-2's own software and sensors, without human intervention.
