Poland on Wednesday hinted that it may purchase Turkey’s Bayraktar TB2 armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak shared the photograph of a Bayraktar TB2 UAV on his Twitter account saying “Good news is coming soon ... stay tuned.”

Speaking at the 3rd Defense Industry Meetings, organized by the Istanbul Chamber of Industry and the SAHA Istanbul Defense and Aerospace Cluster, the Turkish Ministry of Industry and Technology Mustafa Varank said on Wednesday that Turkish UAVs are set for the Europan market.

“Very soon we will see Turkish Bayraktar and Anka UAVs flying in the European skies,” he underlined.

European countries, including Albania, Belarus, the U.K., Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, with whom Turkey shares good defense relations, were said to be among those that could possibly procure the combat drones in question.

The Bayraktar TB2 UAV was developed by the giant drone and defense manufacturer Baykar Defense and is being currently used in Turkey, Qatar, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.
