Egypt plans to buy ten Turkish domestically-made drones, according to a report this week by Turkey's Sabah newspaper.

The decision to purchase the ANKA Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) unmanned aerial vehicles was made last week, during Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Cairo, and followed a 10 week negotiation, Sabah said.

Sabah quoted Turkey's defense industry ministry spokesman Murad Bayar as saying Turkey plans to begin producing the ANKAs early next year.
