Bangladesh Air Force issued request-for-proposal to purchase Medium-Altitude Long-Range (MALE) unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
Earlier it was believed that BAF will buy Turkish Aerospace Industries made Anka-S UCAV. But new RFP showed up and the procurement has been opened for all parties interested to supply UAV to Bangladesh Air Force. Technological advancement is the key purpose of inducting military drones into BAF services.
There are various options, mainly from China & Turkey, for armed drones for Bangladesh. Turkey has TAI Anka-S special ISR & combat UAS and Baykar Makina developed Bayraktar TB2Tactical UAV which is missile armed drone. On the other hand, China has much more options. AVIC China has CH-4 & CH-5 armed UAVs which can perform surveillance and combat missions precisely. Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group (CAIG) recently unveiled their most advanced UCAV Wing Loong-2 (Pterodactyl-2), and this is capable to carry a wide array of munitions to perform combat missions.
Now its upto Bangladesh Air Force whether they choose Chinese one or Turkish. But such highly advanced systems will surely enhance BD Air Force’s operational capabilities to a new height. This will also be a true force multiplier.

This is a truly multipurpose helicopter. Initially six Mi-35 will be bought for the BAF. The deal yet to be signed.
Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh Air Force needs a dedicated attack helicopter platform as soon as possible. Attack choppers are the main fighting tool against enemy mechanized movements. Currently Bangladesh Army & Air Force operating Russian Mi-171Sh combat support helicopters only. These helicopters has handsome fire power but don’t have the capabilities as an attack helicopter has.
Mi-35M is an upgraded variant of the Mi-35. It has all latest avionics, more efficient combat capabilities, better situational awareness, lesser maintenance. Its multirole mission capabilities will provide dedicated attack, troops transport in the forward bases or conflict zones and will carry wounded soldiers back to the safe position.

In the same time Turkey, Italy & China offered their attack helicopter models to Bangladesh. However, BA will select the option that best serves the country’s interests.
