    In 5th July 2010, EuroFighter has offered a new partnership to Turkey. According to offer, Turkey-Europe will invest worh 4.5 billion $ to establish a new aircraft factory to produce first 50 EF-2000 for Turkey.

    According to Italian CEO, If Turkey accept this offer, Turkey will be an equal partner of eurofighter concorsium with Spain, Italy, Germany and England. Aselsan and TAI will play a primery role in those program. Aircraft's radar and electronic systems will be produced by Aselsan, While fuselage components are TAI and Turkish industry will have rights to reach all key technologies of Eurofighters like other 4 partner...

    Turkey has rights to export Eurofighters to other countries with Turkish produced parts. When the other 4 countries have reached an agreement with a foreign country to export eurofighter, Turkey will also produce the components of aircraft.

    According to Italian CEO, It is expected to sign an agreement with Turkey in 2011...


    Google Google Translate

    I think Turkey will go to Eurofighter, If USA reject giving management rights of F-35. Turkey demand integrating of own missile and bombs in F-35. Eurofighter and their partnership offers are providing everything Turkey demands including equal partnership and export rights...

    Bro, Think that If we accept it, We will produce Eurofighter aircrafts in Turkey and integrate on them everything we want including own missile systems. We have all management rights over them including export rights and After this deal, Turkey will be an equal partner of Eurofighter consortium (%15-20(?)...

    That's increadible offer !! We have to give an OK for EF-2000's because Eurofighter consortium needs the impressive influence of Turks over Muslim World to export those aircrafts. :)

    F-4E Simsek Modernization...

    The Simsek project (Thunder), it involves 16 F-4Es( all non-F-4E2020s). The goal is to use the experience gained from Isik project (RF-4Es)and perform cost effective avionics upgrade for 16 F-4Es as well as structural work to keep them flying another 10-12 years. TuAF is hoping to keep 18 RF-4Es and 16 F-4Es airworthy until the first examples of F-35s enter service around 2016-2017.

    BAYKAR, Turkey should develop its UAV (ÇALDIRAN) to be loaded with missiles. TAI's UAV (TIHA-B) will be equipped with Turkey's missiles (Cirit, Umtas, Omtas).

    Cirit has shown superiority to US's Hellfire and Israel's Spike.

    According to Hürriyet the name of TIHA Block A will be ANKA.. also interestingly TIHA Block-A/ANKA is being introduced as a HALE(high altitude long endurance) class UAV on the invitation cards for the ceremony. When asked if it was a misprint, TAI representatives said no and that the technical details will be revealed during the ceremony.
    And finally static tests are the final stages and the flight test phase will be commenced in September.

    Here is a new picture of the TIHA Block A / ANKA

    PS. Maybe they hinted that TIHA Block B with its SAR (also weaponized with jereeds/Cirits as one very reliable and knowledgeable person claimed) will be a HALE class UAV.
    Hopefully all the question marks will be answered during the Friday "get out of the hangar" ceremony..
