Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu made examinations at Kahramankazan box office in Ankara, at the point of application of traffic. During the investigations of Minister Soylu, the flight of AKSUNGUR SİHA did not go unnoticed.


The delivery of AKSUNGUR SİHA, which is expected to be delivered to the security forces in the beginning of 2020, has not been delivered yet. In Kahramankazan region, it is possible to see TUSAŞ's products while flying. It is completely accidental that AKSUNGUR SİHA is in the air while Minister Soylu is examining. He was probably doing the last test flights before being handed over to the security forces.

Turkish Aviation and Space Industry General Manager Dr. Temel Kotil; He stated that the AKSUNGUR MALE class unmanned aerial vehicle developed by TUSAŞ through ANKA UAV will be offered to the use of security forces at the beginning of 2020, but no delivery has been made yet.
