Earthquake ? I feel it in Jakarta too but the tremor is not as strong as in the epicenter in Cianjur, West Java

There was an earthquake.. so I meant no loss of your property or anything.

Huge lost in Cianjur, West Java. 162 death. Government has promised to rebuild the broken houses with proper construction.

If the construction is good, the earthquake will not cause casualties, this is what happen in Cianjur when your houses is build properly.

They will but not like Turks will. By this I mean, Turks would be open to give us some ToT and partner with us on many other projects. China already has lots of money and tech so it doesn’t need partners. Turkey would be more willing to share more with us about the drone. It could also lead to more cooperation on TFX. Turks want countries to invest in its defence industry cuz unlike China it’s not rich. Pakistan is a good country to partner with cuz it needs advanced tech to counter india. Turks probably would offer more incentives to sweeten the deal because they know Pakistan can get the same from China.
Turkey is best country Pakistan can work with to develop its own defence industry.

Till date, none of China's stealth drones are offered for export. Most are not even properly declassified and only GJ-11 is declassified but GJ-11's real form are not shown to the public, only mockups are allowed to be displayed.

But this is also the case for Kizilelma since that also has not been offered for export. After all it is in development. Once that's done then we will see if Turkey even will want to export it. So it is far too early for Pakistan to determine if they want to buy it and if it is for sale.

Technically that is the first flight - all its wheels did leave the runway!!!!

Interesting that the CEO took the controls for the first flight and not a more trained/experienced pilot of some description ?
It is low altitude take off and landing test. One of the last steps in the test procedure before the maiden flight.

Secondly, Selçuk Bayraktar is not the CEO of the company, his brother, Haluk, is the CEO of Baykar. Selçuk Bayraktar is the chief technology officer of the company. He is also one of the most experienced drone pilots you can see in the world.
