On February 12, Turkey’s first unmanned combat surface vessel, the ULAQ, was launched for sea trials. The vessel was developed by Ares Shipyard in cooperation with the Ankara-based Meteksan Defense Industry Inc.


“Since the first day of the introduction of ULAQ, we have received significant attention from both our country and from friendly and allied countries,” Ares Shipyard General Manager Utku Alanc and Meteksan Defense General Manager Selcuk Alparslan said in a joint statement.


According to earlier reports, the ULAQ will have a cruising range of 400 kilometers (249 miles), a speed of 65 kilometers per hour, day and night vision capabilities and a national encrypted communication infrastructure.


The Turkish leadership also vowed to use unmanned marine vehicles of this kind to promote its policies in the maritime area surrounding Turkey, dubbed the “Blue Homeland,” including the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean.
