Canadian Ambassador to Turkiye Visits TUSAŞ

Temel Kotil and Kevin Hamilton discussed the potential for increased cooperation between Canada and Türkiye in the aerospace and defence sectors. Hamilton was gifted a scaled model of HÜRJET with a Turkish Stars aerobatic team paint job.
Among the photos Kevin Hamilton shared on social media platform X, a Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft for the HAVA SOJ airborne electronic warfare aircraft was present. HAVA SOJ, alongside electronic warfare-configured AKINCI and AKSUNGUR UCAVs under the İHA SOJ project, will provide support to other aircraft, particularly against enemy radars and air defence systems.
Canada lifted its embargo on Turkiye regarding arms sales this year. The most well-known part of the embargo was the Webcam MX-15D electro-optical system for Bayraktar TB2 armed UAVs.
Turkiye used ASELSAN’s CATS and recently started the production of ASELFLIR-500 with less weight and greater performance compared to previous systems, especially regarding resolution for day and IR cameras.
