Noting that they have started to develop the weapons and cannons of the Atak helicopter as TR Mechatronics, Aliş said, "We will deliver the first 30 cannons of the Atak helicopter that will be exported next year. Thanks to this product, which will be produced entirely by Turkish engineers, locally and nationally, we will meet the needs of our armed forces and prevent foreign currency payment. We will play an effective role in closing the current account deficit with our exports. said.

Better look at a plan B soon then.
Turkey and Ukraine have JV to produce marine and submarine turbo engines.
30 mm main gun
10 ton class
6 hard points
along Mildar radar

that's surely a beast
First flight for 10-ton ATAK-2 is in 2023, and delivery to the Turkish Army in 2025, according to the TAI boss Dr. Kotil at a recent program in CNN-Turk.....

Agree - the idiots in GHQ and PAF make some stupid decisions which have severly affected procurement programmes - in addition to the T-219 issues - the AH-1Z's that were ordered and never delivered is another symptom of the malaise in the procurement teams -

Thankfully the PN has been a bit more lucky with their programmes.

The motto should be - if it is not ITAR free - then "we" are not interested ...

lucky for now, however, all currently public future PN programs have ITAR restricted critical components 🤷‍♂️

These helicopter sanctions have been a blessing. America thinks its slowing Pakistan down and making it weak. Actually America is helping us stand on our feet.
Thank Allah for sanctions. Thank Allah for the snake America and its zionista fascists masters

Unfortunately, the core of the turbo engine development is harder than building nukes!! The secret lies in the fabrication of the single crystal blades of Ti-Ni alloys to withstand 2KC+ for 2K+ hrs with a 6 sigma quality and reliability assurance! TEI has achieved that for Gokbey utility choppers. Next is for the military version....

Metallurgy and blade design preferably single crystal is the biggest issue for most countries. But most countries have no R and D budgets
