Bayraktar AKINCI Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) used LGK-82 laser guided munition in a live fire test on 1 July, achieving a direct hit. Said test was also the first launch of LGK-82 from a UAV.
AKINCI UCAV took off from Çorlu for the test flight, and flew mostly above cloud cover, around 30,000 feet. LGK-82 was released from this altitude, and the munition scored a direct hit on the target that a Bayraktar TB2 UCAV was illuminating with a laser.
AKINCI UCAV also carried GÖZDE Guidance Kit, developed by TÜBİTAK SAGE and currently undergoing integration trials, in the test flight.
