COBI Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 Set
The COBI Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 Set is not yet announced by COBI and we are building this product and waitlist to gauge interest in a COBI TB2 Drone set. We will allow the list to grow and then forward the number of potentially interested customers to COBI (we will not share your email etc).
How likely is COBI to make a Lego compatible brick Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 Set? Well, first of all COBI would need to see demand and determine if it is appropriate. Second, COBI would need to obtain licensing rights from Baykar Defense in Turkey. This can be a deal breaker if it proves to be expensive or burocratic. COBI does not steal other companies intellectual property so this is usually a deal breaker.

How do COBI bricks compare with LEGO?
COBI bricks are fully compatible with LEGO Bricks and are made from the same high quality EU made resins. The main difference you will notice is that COBI bricks feature many unique parts that are specifically made to make their military brick sets as realistic as possible. This means there are many smooth top pieces and parts that are made specifically for each set.
Additionally, COBI bricks feature many more parts per set due to their layered approach to building sets. You can learn more about the similarities and differences between COBI and LEGO here.
Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 Set History:
As a part of its military modernization program the Armed Forces of Ukraine purchased 12 Bayraktar TB2s in 2019. After successful testing of the aircraft, the Ukrainian Navy made a separate order for 6 Bayraktar TB2s, set to be delivered in 2021, according to navy officials. Meanwhile, Turkish and Ukrainian officials announced the establishment of a joint venture to produce 48 additional Bayraktar TB2s in Ukraine. The first batch of the Bayraktar TB2 complex was delivered to the Navy in July 2021.
During a Russian military buildup in Crimea and near Ukraine’s borders, a Bayraktar TB2 conducted a reconnaissance flight over the Donbas region on 9 April 2021. This was the first operationalization of the aircraft by Ukrainian Forces within an active conflict zone. In October 2021, a Bayraktar TB2 drone was used for the first time in combat during the war, targeting a Russian separatist artillery position, destroying a D-30 howitzer, and halting the bombardment of Ukrainian troops near Hranitne.
During the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Bayraktar TB2 drones have been used by Ukraine’s armed forces against Russian forces and equipment. In January prior to the invasion, the spokesperson for the air force command Lt. Col. Yuri Ignat confirmed that “Ukraine has approximately 20 Bayraktar drones, but we will not stop there”. On 24 February, the day of invasion, the People’s Militia of the Luhansk People’s Republic claimed it shot down two TB2 drones near the city of Luhansk. On 27 February, Ukraine’s air force confirmed two strikes by TB2 on Russian convoys in the Kherson and Zhytomyr regions. According to video footage released by the armed forces, TB2 drones successfully destroyed Russian military vehicles including a tank and surface-to-air missile systems. The drone also reportedly destroyed two Russian fuel trains. The chief of Ukraine’s air force Lt. Gen. Mykola Oleshchuk called the UAV system “life-giving”. On 2 March, Ukrainian defense minister Oleksii Reznikov announced the arrival of additional TB2 drones.
