Greece explores counter drone technology in response to Turkish flights over navy ships

A report by the Athens news source Hurriyet Daily News says the Greek government is looking for ways to counter Turkish drones. The country is concerned about Turkey’s unmanned aerial vehicles and armed drones, according to Greek media outlets.

Bayraktar TB2 drones are capable of executing three to four flights a day at low, medium and high altitudes, observing the movements of the Greek navy ships and defenses on the Greek Islands, according to retired general Evangelos Yeorgusis.

The Greek Defense Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos visited Israel in January to explore options to acquire anti-drone technologies from this country, according to the Greek daily To Vima. It said the government is also looking at exerting diplomatic pressure on Germany to stop selling some parts which are used in the production of Turkish drones
