Azerbaijan’s air force used unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) made by Turkey’s drone magnate Bayraktar in their recent military drill, the country’s Defense Ministry said Thursday.
The drill, which included live-fire training flights, aimed to improve the Azerbaijani Air Force’s combat skills.
“During live-fire training flights, the aerial reconnaissance was conducted in cooperation with units of other types of troops, and the coordinates of the imaginary enemy’s land-based targets were determined,” the ministry said in a statement.

The Azerbaijan Defense Ministry also released the drill’s video footage.
The state-of-the-art drones helped Turkey’s ally Azerbaijan defeat Armenia-backed occupying forces in Nagorno-Karabakh.
