At an altitude of 7,600 meters, Bayraktar Akinci launched TRG-230-IHA. The missile flew approximately 100 km and successfully hit the target.
The developer of TRG-230-IHA is the Turkish company Roketsan. The air-to-ground missile has a maximum launch range of 150 km. It will enable the Bayraktar Akinci drone to strike enemy targets without flying into the enemy's air defense zone.
