Turkey will export domestic drones "Bayraktar2" to Qatar, Turkish media reported on March 15.
A relevant agreement was signed within the framework of the Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference DIMDEX.

From 2011, Turkey has set up the production of mobile outposts that proved effective in fight against the militants of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), and also the Canik TP9 handguns, unmanned ANKA aircraft and other military equipment to strengthen the domestic defense industry.
Turkey is also developing a domestic combat laser system.
Earlier, the trials of the domestic-made long-range surface-to-surface missiles have also been conducted in Turkey.
The new rocket, named KAAN was launched from a firing ground in the province of Sinop in the north of Turkey and having flown 280 kilometers in the given direction, fell in the Black Sea.
The KAAN rocket system, produced by the company "Roketsan", was first demonstrated at the International Defense Industry Fair IDEF-2017 in Istanbul.
