Tell me after it gets completed. Making a RAMJET base solid fuel missile is a very big task. Liquid fuel missiles can still be made but they can't be used as BVRAAM. BVRAAM has to be solid fueled. WIth 0 experience in even designing basic liquid fuel RAMJET, Turkey will take at least 15-20 years to develop solid fuel Meteor type missileAKDOGAN RamJet powered long range air to air Missile under development .... similar to METEOR missile
Anyone can make BVRAAM. The problem comes when it is a maneuvering target. Shooting a non maneuvering target is extremely easy and is like any other normal missile. Since Turkey has no fighter jets with its own radars and USA won't allow its planes to integrate another country's missiles, I wonder how Turkey can even test its missiles in a realistic high speed scenario.65 km GOKDOGAN BVR air to air Missile ( solid-state RF seeker, with advanced counter-measure capability and datalink update
Yes, IIR missiles are possible as IIR missiles don't need any radar integration. They fire using their own pod/internal seekers. Nevertheless, a high resolution IIR sensor is of advanced technology. It is unlikely that Turkey is makin this missile without any imported componentBOZDOGAN WVR air to air Missile ( a high resolution dual colour imaging infra-red seeker, with a comprehensive off-boresight capability, along with advanced counter-measures )
Turkey has only made 1 prototype so far and that is a long way from results.and only in 4 years Turkey has developed TEI TS-1400 turboshaft gas turbine engine for Helicopters
and TEI sent 5 TS-1400 tturboshaft Engines to TAI for integration/sertificate on T-625 Helicopter
in 2024 TEI TS-1400 turboshaft gas turbine engine will enter service .. in 8 years ( 2017-2024 )
Which turbofan engine does Turkey make? Old generation helicopter engines are the easiest to make and even that is something Turkey is finding it hard.Turkey was become one of a few Countries in the World that develop Gas Turbine Engines
Turkey is one of 5 Countries in the World that produce turbine blades for gas turbine Engines
Turkey can't get any supplies from western countries or any other countries during war. However, there is a big chance that having one sided defence equipments belonging to USA can be too risky as USA will definitely have some backdoor channels to disable them or bypass them during conflictsThe procurement of the S400 is a strategic decision of diplomacy that cannot be considered solely from a technical point of view.
Turkey can't rely on US support against Israel, when there is a conflict between Turkey and Israel, US will be 100% on Israel's side.
Russia is the best option for Turkey.Although Russia and Turkey have a long history of war.But neither Russia nor Turkey has the capacity to expand in the foreseeable future, and there is little chance of conflict.As a Chinese, I can be sure that China will not directly support Turkey in a war, when Turkey and the EU come into conflict, China will only remain neutral.But I believe Chinese technology can be applied to Russian weapons in the future.It is in China's interest to help Russia match America's level of conventional weapons technology.
