In a game-changing development in the world of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the United Arab Emirates’ EDGE tech group has teamed up with Turkey’s Baykar, a major player in the UAV business.

This strategic partnership involves integrating EDGE’s precision-guided munition, the Desert Sting 16, into Baykar’s Bayraktar TB2 unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs).

So, what’s the scoop on this integration? The idea is to slap the Desert Sting 16 onto the Bayraktar TB2 UAV, and they aim to get it done by the end of 2024.

This move is about beefing up the TB2 fleet’s capabilities for future ground-attack missions.

It’s a big deal, and it’s got folks in the UAV world buzzing.
