A video released by Tunisian Ministry of Defense confirms that it did not cancel the order for Turkey-made Anka drones. The ministry says it will pay 15% of the cost while the rest will be paid via low-interest loans supplied by a Turkish bank.
Turkey had disclosed that it would grant $15 million to Tunisian army the last week. The amount is expected to be used for the procurement of armed drones.
Tunisia had agreed to buy 6 Anka-S drones and 3 control stations for $250 million in 2019.
Turkish drones are already used by armies of Turkey, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Libya and Qatar. Analysts claim that there are also customers refusing to disclose their names.
