Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has announced that Serbia will join the long list of customers for Turkish drones, Bayraktar.

The announcement was made after his meeting with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Belgrade to discuss cooperation in defense and economic projects.

According to Vu?i?, Serbia is ready to allocate "several hundred million euros" to buy attack drones, which the conflict in Ukraine has made in high demand.

Although there is no date or concrete agreement for the drones, the Serbian President expressed the hope that deliveries will begin next year.

Many other countries have also expressed interest in purchasing Bayraktar drones. The orders recognize the drone's success in neutralizing key Russian military equipment, such as helicopters, armored vehicles and artillery systems.

Earlier this year, Bangladesh announced a plan to buy Turkish-made drones after seeing how they had performed in Ukraine. Romania also has plans to purchase Bayraktar TB2 drones to help improve its air defense capabilities.

Last week, Ukrainian military official Valery Zaluzhny revealed that a pair of Bayraktar TB2 drones neutralized $26.5 million of Russian military assets in just three days.
