3,3 milyar dolarlık Atak helikopterini anlatan Özlü, "Bu helikopteri iki konfigürasyonda üreteceğiz. Birincisi helikopter üzerinde top olan sistem, ikincisi ise helikopter üzerinde hava ve yer füze sistemlerinin olduğu konfigürasyon, yani daha fazla elektronik harp sistemlerinin takılı olduğu model. Bunların üretimi devam ediyor. Envanterde 9 adet var ama bunlar ilk versiyon; toplamda 51 adet üreteceğiz. Üstünde burun topu, gece görüş cihazı var. Teröristi gördüğünüz zaman müdahale edebileceğiniz etkili ve güçlü bir silah." değerlendirmesini yaptı.

So there is another variant includes more electronics instead of gun!
Naval variant?

He's talking about T-129EDH vs T-129B, EDH = 20mm gun and 70mm hydra, released early and will be updated to B later on. This version will include stinger, umtas/cirit (don't know if we're interested in tow or hellfire) and is the ''full'' version as intended.

In the future there might be a longer/bigger version of T-129, and with LHD plans naval version seems obvious.

Naval would be easy if the mission profile doesn't change

Just need anti corrosive treatment, floatations devices and landing and commutation aids

Equipping a T129 with some domestic high performance anti ship missile would be good to
Hit fast speed boats etc

Does turkey make any light anti ship missile ?

T-129 ATTACK helikopter maybe better than Apache 64. But have a some problem. Apache have a Longbow radar system. I'm dont see on the T-129 Attack helicopter. T-129 ATTACK have a longbow radar system ??

Do you want to mount it on the top?
nope, it will go to one of the pylons. does reduce greatly the fire power of the helicopter but I assume too much weight for the engines if it went on top and full weapon load. Hopefully for next version of T-129 such problems will be solved.
