Baykar Technology Technical Manager Selçuk Bayraktar shared a video on how Bayraktar KIZILELMA Combatant Unmanned Aircraft System (MIUS) will take off and land from TCG ANADOLU and similar short-runway LHD type ships in his presentation as part of his fast-breaking visit to KYK Mimar Sinan Boys' Dormitory. .
During the presentation, Selçuk Bayraktar said, “Short-runway (LHD type) ships are one-twelfth cheaper than aircraft carriers, and Turkey produces its own ship. Helicopters or aircraft that can take off from short-runway ships can be deployed on board. MİUS and Bayraktar TB12 will be two of them.” made statements. Bayraktar, who also gave information about the video, stated that the video belongs to "a simulation based on mathematical foundations about how the aircraft will function".
In the video, KIZILELMA takes off from the sloping runway without using a catapult or other external equipment and makes a hard landing at a wide angle of attack with the help of the catch rope. This type of takeoff/landing is also called STOBAR (Short Takeoff/Landing with Catch Hook) in naval aviation. The STOBAR type is used on aircraft carriers that do not have take-off/landing catapults, and the countries that have this type of aircraft carrier can be listed as Russia, India and China.
STOBAR type takeoff/landing; warplanes such as F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Rafale; Although less sophisticated than the CATOBAR (Catapult Assisted Takeoff/Landing with Hook Landing) type aircraft carriers used by the Nmitz, Charles de Gaulle and Gerald R. Ford class aircraft carriers, there is more time between sorties and the ship must reach a certain speed for the take-off to be successful. may need to be reached.
