    Oh it's discussed. They claim that they sold mini bomb release unit. But Baykar CEO announced on twitter that they never bought it. Actually Baykar designs and manufactures the unit itself.

    Selçuk Bayraktar, chief technology officer at Baykar and the developer of the TB2, refuted the claims made by The Guardian

    "We never got it from you. It is very expensive and it does not work in all cases. We have designed and produced a much more advanced, cost-effective version of our own," Bayraktar said in a tweet



    The Baykar Bombrack Unit was developed in accordance with MIL-STD-8591 and MIL-STD-1760E standards to arm tactical class UAVs. Aluminum alloys are mainly used in production. Military standard connectors are used in original control circuit and hub tie connection designs. The hub tie connector for various ammunition can be positioned at two different points. Different types of holding legs can also be integrated for different diameters.

    Design Standard: MIL-STD-8591 and MIL-STD-1760E
    Hook Class: 100 lb
    Dimensions: 106 mm (E) x 208 mm (W) x 103 mm (H)
    Weight: ~ 1,000 g
    Construction: Aluminum
    Operating Temperature Range: -40 ° C to +60 ° C
