The prototype of the promising UAV Baykar Bayraktar Kızılelma received engine and successfully passed its integration test. Baykar reported this on Twitter.

It is not clear from the report whether the Ukrainian AI-322F or AI-25TLT jet engine from Ivchenko-Progres or the Turkish TEI TF-6000 was used for the integration. Bayraktar Kızılelma is built for all three engines. Baykar ordered Ivchenko-Progress AI-322F and AI-25TLT engines back in November 2021, but it is not clear whether the manufacturer managed to deliver them to Turkey before the start of a full-scale war.

The Bayraktar Kızılelma UAV will be produced in two configurations. The subsonic MIUS-A with the AI-25TLT Ivchenko-Progress engine, and the supersonic MIUS-B with the Ivchenko-Progress AI-322F or TF-6000 from the Turkish company TEI (Tusaş Engine Industries).
