Turkish Land Forces will soon induct Titra Teknoloji’s unknown number of ALPiN unmanned helicopters, as per local media reports.
ALPiN Unmanned Helicopter is an unmanned aerial vehicle that is made unmanned/autonomous by changing the control mechanisms and interfaces of a two-man helicopter with system-specific servo actuators controlled by our autopilot system.
ALPiN is the first Turkish unmanned helicopter that can land/take off vertically with the press of a single button. It can execute the assigned tasks fully automatically and can carry 200 kg of payload including fuel.
ALPiN rotary-wing UAV is designed for applications in challenging tactical environments to provide intelligence, surveillance, target detection and reconnaissance (ISTAR).
