Turkey reported testing the world's first laser-armed drone

Turkey has successfully tested an Eren unmanned aerial vehicle with laser weapons. It is noted that the drone made shots at the target from a distance of 100, 300 and 500 meters.

Eren UAV was developed by defense companies TÜBİTAK and ASİSGUARD under coordination of Forensic Department of General Directorate of Security of Turkey.

The drone is designed to dispose of explosive devices with laser weapons without the involvement of sappers, explained Aikuta Eroğlu, Turkey’s assistant police commissioner.

When the tests are completed, the drone will be put into service of the Turkish army.
