ARMENPRESS/CBC. Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) says it has suspended the delivery of aircraft engines to “countries with unclear usage” after it became known that those engines are being used on Turkish combat drones deployed in Azerbaijan in the attacks on Artsakh.

The Quebec-based company — better known for its Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles — said it became aware late last week that some of the recreational aircraft engines produced by its Austrian subsidiary, Rotax, are being used on Turkish Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), CBC reported.
“We have recently been made aware that some Rotax engines are currently used in military UAVs, and have started a thorough investigation immediately,” Martin Langelier, BPR’s senior vice president and the company’s spokesperson, told Radio Canada International in an email statement.
“In the meantime, we are suspending delivery of aircraft engines in countries with unclear usage.”
Earlier Canada had suspended supplies of military technology to Turkey, with PM Justin Trudeau calling for an investigation to reveal how the supplies appeared in Azerbaijan.
The Artsakh armed forces shot down an attacking Bayraktar TB2 combat drone, which was equipped with a Canadian L-3 WESCAM CMX-15D optics.

Good move by bombardier, isolate turkey as they have abandoned peace and are on a war path with almost everyone.
I see an economic collapse of turkey, as the world feels insecure trading with turkey.
This will lead to closer ties with China.

But it lacks Canada's high quality resolution, making targeting much less effective.
no it isnt, CATS range is 30 km vs mx-15 20km, low resolution dosnt mean less range, CATS have larger lenses, more powerfull laser pointer etc. but CATS designed for larger UAVs, a little bit heavy than mx15, new versions will have high res. IR sensors.

The drone has a Canadian engine and a American-australian targeting system. So what exactly is turkish in it ? The body ?
Doubt the turkish capability in manufacturing any processors ?

no even body is foreign only name is turkish sir, got it? if not let me explain

almost all uavs in that class use ROTAX engine , american, israeli, iranian , turkish etc, you remember your engine for rustom2? it is russian saturn engine , so your rustom 2 is not indian right?(acc to your logic)

rotax is cheap reliable, civillian and easy to get even for countries like iran. turkey has own engine for this class TEI PG115HP but it is a little bit big for bayraktar, may needs a little bit integration WORK.

the system is belong to turkey we can integrate or disintegrate any parts and can sell it to whoever we want. canada will loose a good costumer at the and of the day and we will get higher income.

Certainly, it has more Turkish contribution to it than what Indians had in Brahmos.
