The fact that Chinese and Turkish drones are less expensive than UAVs built in the US and have no political baggage is their greatest benefit.
However, Haluk Bayraktar, the CEO of a major Turkish drone manufacturer, claimed in a recent interview
that China had secret controls on the drones it exported to foreign countries.
According to Bayraktar, CEO of Baykar Technology, Chinese UAVs turned around as they approached the Chinese border,
which he termed as "totally inappropriate." He obtained this information from a national official.
The comments made by Bayraktar against Chinese drones are not new. He earlier stated that Baykar is eager to provide
those countries with a better alternative because China would be averse to sell drones to several Asian countries in its area.
