Made up of around 7, parts, units and 74 groups of 2, cables measuring over 3. Able to cruise at a speed of kts, the Block-A can operate at a distance of up to km, using an existing Ku-band line-of-sight LoS ankka system developed locally by Savronik. The airframe crashed, however, while attempting to land on 3 December due to a technical failure.

Serial numbers and deployed on 25 March carried out more than sorties within a six month period, though the first of them experienced a crash landing on 9 October 9 the same year. Armed with a 3kg warhead, able to penetrate mm of armour, the CIRIT can be fired either from a Smart Launcher designed by Roketsan or from a standard pod, in twin or quad launcher configuration.

Each Smart Launcher weighs some 55kg in a 2-cell configuration and kg in a 4-cell, both figures including the munition. Various modifications have been performed on the air vehicle to save weight.


The accepted aircraft in Blok-B configuration features a winglet due to the requirement of an additional kg in payload and 24 hours of endurance. This feature does not carry through to serial production aircraft because, following comprehensive analysis, it was discovered that the performance improvement did not outweigh the weight penalty.

SSM underlined anma fact that the ANKA-S would be used for reconnaissance and surveillance missions and that its satcom capability means that up to six aircraft can be controlled simultaneously via satellite: In anks to the satcom communication capability, it is equipped with a national IFF System Mode 4 and Mode Sindigenous flight and mission computers and a personnel locator system. The photographs show that ANKA-I is fitted with an air data probe on the nose, indicating that they were probably taken during initial flight testing.
