‘WE WERE NOT EVEN FREE IN THE SKIES OF OUR COUNTRY’
Selçuk Bayraktar, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of T3 Foundation, met with university students at the talk organized by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan University (RTEÜ) in Rize, where he went after his program at Trabzon KTÜ. Addressing the students at the RTEÜ congress center, Bayraktar said, “We were one of the countries that were almost completely dependent on foreign countries in aviation. When we look back 20 years ago, Turkey was 85 percent dependent on abroad in the defense industry. In our time, when I sit in university desks like you, my biggest talent is to be a maintenance engineer in a foreign company.” Let alone developing a high-tech product nationally, we do not have such self-confidence, and the most we could do was to be the implementer of a technology developed by foreigners. This was the biggest horizon and skill. Everyone thought this was a skill. The biggest skill for us was to buy a plane developed by foreigners and put it on the assembly line. and when the day came, they were saying the following about that inventory: ‘You can’t fly here. You can’t fly there. If you do this, I will put an embargo. If you do that, I won’t take the plane off the ground. They were saying, ‘When the day comes, when you pull the trigger, that plane won’t even release its ammunition.’ In other words, we weren’t even free. Our country was in its skies. He wasn’t even free. Baykar has developed its technologies for this purpose since the first day so that our country’s skies can be independent. “Bayraktar, which currently makes the world’s most advanced brand 5 times more than its closest rival in its class, produced TB2, and later Akıncı and Kızılelması, entirely with its own resources,” he said.
‘THERE IS NO SUCH DEFENSE COMPANY IN THE WORLD’
Saying that they have made the best airplanes in the world in their class, Bayraktar said, “We have built the best airplanes in the world in their class in 10 years. The attack unmanned aerial vehicle, developed by only a few countries in the world, was developed and exported to 33 countries. This is by far a record in the world. When we look back 20 years ago, 83 percent of all our income came from exports. There is no such defense company in the world. Bayraktar TB2 is 5 times more known in the world than its rival. In addition, all unmanned aerial vehicles are developed with our own resources, earned through exports. “This is not an example that is often found either in our country or abroad,” he said.
‘TB3 WAS ENTIRELY DEVELOPED NATIONAL AND LOCAL’
Adding that the Baykar TB3 SİHA was produced entirely locally and nationally, Bayraktar said, “The most valuable thing for us is the fight against terrorism in our country, in a sense, these unmanned aerial vehicles have broken the back of the 40-year-old scourge called terrorism. ‘My late father’ and my brother; The most precious and greatest engagement for me; The fact that these planes were used to liberate our own lands. The fact that we were presented with the hero badge on this occasion was the greatest badge of pride for us. Bayraktar TB3 SİHA made its 8th 6-hour flight today. It has the most advanced domestic engine in aviation. There are no very advanced piston engines in aviation. It has a turbo diesel engine with very superior features. The rapid flight campaign continues before boarding the ship. Bayraktar TB2 was made with 93 percent domestic contribution. Bayraktar TB3’s targeting systems, which we call electro-optical systems, were developed entirely nationally and locally. “When it is deployed on short-runway ships with Kızılelma, it will revolutionize the history of world combat,” he said.
