Turkish unmanned aerial vehicles ‘game changer,’ says British defense secretary

Turkish unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) have become a "game changer" in modern wars, Britain's defense secretary said on Wednesday.

Speaking at the SAHA Expo, a defense event in Istanbul, Ben Wallace examined the Turkish drones on display, as well as newly launched military products.

Wallace noted that Turkish drones are in use across different parts of the world, calling them an "incredibly sort of important change in the modern battlefield."

Touching on the Russia-Ukraine war, he said: "We are exploring, we are investing in our armed forces and the lessons we see in Ukraine about what that means."

He said the UK was modernizing its armed forces and would spend £23 billion ($26.7 billion) on its army over the next 10 years.
