Tempest is close enough to F-35 they can use Tempest instead of F-35 for carriers.

British carriers are VTOL, why would the UK build another separate VTOL program? when they are already part of the f-35 development? shows how little you know about things.

Project Tempest seems to be garnering a lot of interest among several countries who do not want to collaborate directly with the United States or Russia.

Case and point, Japan and India for the next generation engine development from this project, while Turkey showing interest for the main program.

There were discussions online that mention that the UK is inviting Japan for the development of the next-generation engine for the Tempest and the Mitsubishi F-3 (Shin-Shin). Similarly, The decision to establish a collaboration will be decided by India for AMCA with either Rolls-Royce or Safran in February 2022.

If these reports are true, then it would be the first time that the British are collaborating outside their traditional western sphere of alliances

Turkey has also shown interest in collaborating with UK for their own TF-X project. No idea how far the talks have progressed.

Perhaps our Turkish members @Hakikat ve Hikmet @TurDef here could highlight the details.

News from 2019... And the content is nothing but an anonymous think-tank comments and some assumptions. Partnering talks with the British on these various aviation projects has been discussed for pages even in this forum. A large number of documents and official explanation translations are available in the forum archive. Also, as far as I know, Hakikat ve Hikmet is not a Turkish member.

Looks huge, almost like a bomber / jet hybrid. I wonder how manoeverable it could be in a dogfight. Not that dogfights even happen anymore. Now it's all BVR with air to air missiles and awacs.

Apparently this is the UK's latest creation of it's next generation fighter, the Tempest.

So you guys are going at it alone? That would be a steep learning curve, even for your most capable engineers.

The agreement was for the IMRH heavy helicopter aka the Mi-17V5 replacement that HAL is designing. The decision for AMCA's new engine is said to be announced in DefExpo 2022. So it is still in the air.
