    TR TF-X KAAN Fighter Jet

    The glas is not the problem as it is teansparent to radio waves. The problem is what's behind the glas, which is the cockpit. The cockpit bieng made out of flat surfaces in straight angles will act like a retro-reflect in essence. All aircrafts have this problem. What is normally done is to...

    Developments in Nuclear Weapons Around the World

    It is called Kessler effect. If it happens in low earth orbit for Starlinkn then it will clear out after few dacades. I rather have that than potential nukes or destroying a country like USA did to several countries in recent time.

    A kill switch does not mean the drone malfunction and drop from the sky. It could transmit its coordinate to friendly forces which takes them out with larger drones. This will now advertise that you also need the big drone for AA, not just TB2.

    Live Conflict Azerbaijan and Armenia clash over Nagorno-Karabakh region Updates & Discussion

    That good start but not enough since that is just a piece of paper. Armenians really need to change their hate filled culture, unfortunately that is not happening. The first step would be to stop their hostile international rethorics and open up their economy to both Az and Tr.

    There is no if they will decline. The demographic situation in all of Europe ensures that there will be a decline. Nothing can save EU when Germany goes into the demographic decline.

    Nd when we shot down, they will lose a pilot. Btw, AESA is a few days of work to produce a new one. Losing a drone is not the end of the world.

    T The first missile is fired by the platform with longest missile range and radar detection range for a particular target. Speed of the platform are of minor importance. Anyway, Akıncı is not a dedicated air superiority platform so nobody will use it to shot down fighters but rather slow...

    There will be jet powered drones as well. However, a cheap drone with 24h endurance does not need to intercept anything since it will already be above the area of interest. Within 10 minutes, TB2 like drones would cover a radius of 40km. This is bigger than most cities. Consider this...

    On the contrary, a few drones with 4 AA missiles will have a very big impacts on protecting cities against medium size suicide drones such as Shahed or even Predators. It is in reality the best way to protect against other drones.

    Decades ago, it was planned to be produced in 4 batches with 250 each with a posibility to extend. However, that was before all our drones so the new number might be lower. So yes, 250 is just the first batch/version. Others will follow if we can make the domestic engine to work.

    Honestly, not very impressive or useful. Too short duration with 10min and that warhead feels like fireworks.

    My comment was not on their quality. But rather, in addition to production you also have to add a lot of other costs. For high volume production you typically add 3x of production cost. For low volume production, you add a lot more.

    Has been doing it for a few centuries now so I'm surprised that people think we are allies. We are nato members for one thing and one thing only, keep us against Russia since they happened to be stronger than us at this point in time. This also suits us since Russians are not allies either...
