Many people currently think that TAI's MMU, as an indigenous platform, has the highest degree of secrecy among the TAI projects. This is mostly true, however, the UAV department is preparing for a big show starting from the coming days.

Flight tests of two different unmanned systems by TAI are expected to be shared in the coming days/months.

In addition to these highly classified projects, the TP version of AKSUNGUR is being prepared. And then there is JEMSAH, which has also been disclosed recent year. At least three systems will be introduced in 2023, and there is nothing about more that has yet been reflected in open sources. This information was also confirmed by SSB and TAI officials.

The first of these is the jet-powered UAVs launched from the UAV, of which you have already seen prototype images. JEMSAH is a supersonic autonomous UAV system being developed with a focus on Electronic Attack, air-launched decoy and SEAD, as well as Air Force training and testing activities.

The second, GOKSUNGUR, will be the largest member of the ANKA UAV group. It is a high-altitude mission-capable strategic UCAV with a considerably high payload cap.

The third is an unmanned combat aircraft, codenamed TISU in open sources. It is speculated that this system, unlike the Baykar KE, will have a more stealthy character and will basically be a penetrator bomber.

Before the end of 2022, we expect at least one of GOKSUNGUR or TISU will be available to see in open sources. But, 2023 will be the year of the Turkish aerospace industry's big trunk show under the leadership of industry leaders such as TAI, Baykar, Havelsan, Sage, etc.

Starting from this November, new systems or roll-out ceremonies, first flights and first system deliveries will take place almost every month for the next 36-48 months.

this is 21st century warfare and seems like Turkey has taken a leaf from all the NATO experience and basically re-written a whole new book

that is quite remarkable and a huge development

seems like Turkey wants to conquer the air space above a equally matched foe using the full spectrum of capabilities

sending in low/medium/high altitude UCAVS which can do SEAD/DEAD, EW Jamming, Surveillance, Reconnaissance, Electronic monitoring and then sending in the attack craft with short/medium and long range weapons to known out and take down the defences

basically making a opening in the airspace using 100% autonomous systems and with UCAVS like the Kizilelma they can do even the air to air combat part

and all of these machines will be controlled and integrated into one single battle order using extensive use of AI

TAI exported AKSUNGUR UCAVs to two countries, one in South Africa and the other in Central Asia.
(South Africa and Kyrgyzstan)

This is a line of site operation. I think Turkey should focus on TB series, then Akinci and kizilElma instead of going in so many directions. These platforms need AI badly in case there is EMP jamming techniques deployed in a war theater disrupting communications.

Next critical steps are to produce in batches the Bozdogan / Gokhan, etc HOBS and BVR missiles and integrate with KizilElma and Akinci to produce a full weapons package for deployment along with AI in KizilElma! That completes a battle worthy system.
