Britain's Andair stops supplying parts for Turkish Bayraktar drones

The British company Andair Ltd has stopped supplying parts for the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 attack drones, which were widely used by Azerbaijan during the recent war in Nagorno-Karabakh.

"Andair Ltd was approached by the Embassy of Armenia on 02/11/2020, requesting that we stop supplying Baykar Makina as they were using our products on armed drones," the company said in a statement.

"After an investigation it was apparent that this was the case and Andair immediately halted supply and cancelled all orders from Baykar Makina."

Throughout the war, Bayraktar drones were used to target both military objects and civilian settlements in Karabakh. Several manufacturers, including Canada's Bombardier and California-based Trimble Navigation have discontinued sales of their products to Baykar.
