International Military - Ukraine's neighbor, Lithuania, seems to have caught the public's attention. How not, because Lithuanians are known to collect donations to buy Bayraktar TB2 from Turkey. Later, a donation worth 5 million euros will be given to Ukraine. The time for donations is estimated at three weeks.

 Quoted from Bulgarian Military, as part of a donation campaign initiated by Lithuanian journalist Andrius Tapinas, Lithuanians raised money to buy Bayraktar TB2 MALE for Ukraine. Tapinas noted that a "green light" had been received from the Lithuanian and Turkish Ministry of Defense for the donation campaign, and Baykar, maker of the Bayraktar TB2 MALE, said "yes" to the campaign.

The amount of donations collected so far has reached 1.485 million euros. A donation of 1,150 euros per minute is made to the campaign. The €1 million threshold was crossed in just 8 hours. Residents who donate are also asked to spread the campaign using the hashtag #bayraktarasUkrainai.

As is well known, Bayraktar TB2 has indeed succeeded in achieving brilliant effectiveness in its operation. Reporting from AP News, this drone can be said to be a source of power for Ukraine. Where it is known that Bayraktar TB2 is able to make Ukraine able to survive various Russian attacks.

Drones carried out an unexpectedly successful strike in the early stages of Ukraine's conflict with Moscow, before the Russians could organize their air defenses on the battlefield, said Jack Watling of the London-based Royal United Services Institute. “(TB2) shouldn't make any significant impact because they are medium altitude, slow-flying aircraft with large electromagnetic signatures and large radar cross-section.

And Russia has a very capable air defense system, so they should be shot down. The terrain is very open and provides good radar coverage," added Wattling.

Quoted from Turkish Defense News, Bayraktar TB2 is a Tactical Armed System/UAV developed and manufactured by Baykar. A highly sophisticated design that provides all the solutions an operator could possibly need in one integrated system.

This system consists of Bayraktar TB2 Armed / UAV Platform, Ground Control Station, Ground Data Terminal, Remote Display Terminal, Advanced Base with Generator and Trailer modules. Thanks to Baykar's accumulation and technological capabilities, the entire system is manufactured locally.

The Bayraktar TB2 is a Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE), a Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle capable of performing Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions and armed attacks. The onboard avionics suite with a triple avionics system includes units that allow for fully autonomous taxiing, takeoff, landing and cruise.
