Slovakian Defense Minister Jaro Nad and the accompanying delegation met with Baykar Technologies CEO Haluk Bayraktar.
Jaro Nad held a meeting with Haluk Bayraktar for the acquisition of Bayraktar TB2 Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV).
Slovakian Defense Minister Jaro Nad shared on his Twitter account, "Works on acquiring drones for Slovak military moving forward. Good talk today with Mr. Bayraktar from Turkey & discussions with other drone producers ongoing."
Bayraktar TB2 has been exported to 22 different countries, mainly Azerbaijan, Libya and Ukraine.
The TB2s used by the Azerbaijani army in Karabakh entered the world stage, proving itself in a war between two states.
TB2s are used extensively by the Ukrainian army in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
First UCAV export to a NATO and EU member country
In 2021 Poland became the first EU member state to buy Bayraktar TB2's.
If Slovakia reaches an agreement with Baykar Technologies, it will become the second NATO and EU member after Poland to receive the Bayraktar TB2 UCAV.
