Fly Bvlos Technology has engineered the most recent version of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) Jackal, integrating a design with six electric ducted fan (EDF) engines.
Based on details gathered by Defensehere.com from the company, the testing phase is currently in progress for Jackal's updated version, which incorporates six EDF engines. These trials are taking place at the facilities of Fly Bvlos Technology situated in Ankara/Kalecik.
After its initial flight in Istanbul on April 23, 2022, using 2 EDF engines, Jackal underwent further development and was upgraded to incorporate 4 EDF engines. This enhanced configuration was utilized in its production and subsequent export.
Exported to the United Kingdom on April 25, 2022, as the inaugural Turkish unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in that country, Jackal attracted significant worldwide interest. It underwent thorough scrutiny in Ankara, and was transformed into an unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) in the UK, and in October 2022, it achieved its first successful firing by utilizing Thales' LMM missile.
Fly Bvlos Technology is anticipated to unveil intriguing advancements concerning Jackal, which has garnered attention due to its distinctive design, technical attributes, unique applications, and combat concept.
