The Bayraktar TB2 is a medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) capable of remotely controlled or autonomous flight operations.

It is manufactured by the Turkish Company Baykar Makina Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş., primarily for the Turkish Armed Forces. The aircraft are monitored and controlled by aircrew in a ground control station, including weapons employment.

The Bayraktar TB2 platform has a blended wing body design with an inverse V-tail structure. Thrust is generated through the internal combustion engine placed between the tail booms. The monocoque platform is modular with detachable main items such as wing, tail boom, and V-tails.

The Bayraktar TB2 has a length of 6.5 m, a height of 2.2 m and a wingspan of 12 m. It has a maximum take-off weight of 650 kg with a maximum payload capacity of 150 kg.

The ground control station (GCS) is based on a NATO spec shelter unit which is equipped with cross redundant command and control systems. The mobile unit supports three personnel: pilot, payload operator and mission commander.
