A batch of Heron unmanned aerial vehicles produced for Turkey by Israel Aerospace Industries and Elbit Systems have passed critical performance tests in Israel.According to Turkey’s top procurement official, Ankara is ready to accept delivery of the drones.IAI and Elbit won the $183 million Turkish UAV contract – of which about $50 million would go to Turkish companies Turkish Aerospace Industries and Aselsan – in 2005 over U.S. rivals. The manufacturing team will pay compensation of nearly $18 million to Turkey for the delays and failure to meet some of the criteria in the program’s original specifications, Bayar said. ........................Hurriyet Daily News
