What are you saying? Turkey does not have basic BVR missile with radar guidance and yet you claim that some random UAV will have BVRAAM? Do you know that no UAV has any long range AAM because they can't carry such powerful radars to detect long range targets? Also, UAVs don't even have short range AAMs because UAVs can't maneuver well and hence any short range encounter will get UAV destroyed before it can firealso until 2025 Turkish Airforce will have air superiority unmanned Fighter Jet MIUS armed with AKDOGAN long range air to air missiles similar to METEOR + AESA Radar + data link
Unless Turkey has superhumans or some kind of prophetic guidance giving technology, it is impossible to make anything even by 2035. Making a turbofan engine is not simply assembling a bunch of fans and rotors. Otherwise, even local mechanic shops who can make table fans would be making jet engines.View attachment 742398
We tried getting the help of an British company RR for turbofan Engine
but that avenue fell through. So the Turks took the entire program in-house by 2018
wait for 2029
according to general manager of the TR-MOTOR turbofan Engine to be ignited for the first time by 2026 and by 2029 TFX will flight with indigenous turbofan engine
It is not that other countries are retarded and Turkey is some kind of genius like Tony Stark and can make anything quickly. USA took 12 years to make F119 engines for F22 despite it being of same generation as F414 that USA had developed earlier. Even countries like Russia took 15 years to develop AL41F engines for Su35/Su57. China has been struggling for 25 years since 1980s to make engines and finally made engines only in 2010. India struggled for 20+ years before it could make Kaveri engine and indigenise Russian Al31F engines for Su30. Turkey started its engine program in 2018 and tried to get UK's help. It fell through and in 2019 started program for indigenous engine. Turkey has no knowledge of the metallurgy and has no knowledge of the FADEC codes needed for an engine. It will take 20 years to just learn these and then another 10 years to design an engine.
About making TFX, the most important component of 4th and higher generation fighters is semiconductor manufacturing. Turkey can't make even basic semiconductors. The only Chip fabrication equipment Turkey has is the 700nm lithography machine gifted by USA for research purposes. Turkey can't make any meaningful semiconductor on its own and hence there is no way it can make any meaningful sensor, mission computers, radars etc indigenously. Turkish radars are all assembly products with imported mission computers. Anyone can make devices that emit or receive radio waves but the real difficulty is in reading the reflected waves. This requires semiconductor computation.
