The Sivrisinek "Mosquito" R-İHA (Turkish acronym for rotory wing UAV) is produced by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI). The aircraft is a derivative of Canadian Innovator's Mosquito XE manned helicopter and capable of fully autonomous flight, take-off, and landing. Sivrisinek can carry electro-optical (Aselsan FLIR) and SIGINT payloads and has flown armed with a single CIRIT missile. The CIRIT is an indigenous 70 mm rocket with a semi-active laser homing seeker developed by Turkish missile maker Roketsan. The aircraft first flew in December 2010 and is expected to be marketed to Turkey's navy.
