Supercapacitor batteries then.
Technically a battery is a batch of cells that carry charge, so.
They are inherently different. A supercapacitor provides a high current over a short time (seconds). The thrust of the electromagnetic catapult scales with the current. The higher the current the bigger the pushing force of EMALS. Supercapacitors can provide insanely high instantaneous currents over a short time and can be quickly charged back for another discharge. Batteries provide a low current over a long time. They discharge slowly over time and charge slowly. They hold more energy per volume compared to supercapacitors. A bunch of cells comes together to form a "battery", and a bunch of supercapacitors forms a "bank".

American requirement of accelerating 45000kg to 240km/h complicates things our carrier will be much smaller than an American supercarrier and our launch weight will also be much lighter.

In recent years they made hybrid supercapacitors to combine the better features of capacitors and batteries. Batteries can also be used to charge supercapacitors faster than mains supply alone. Still there maybe a wait time between full charges and there maybe a quicker way of launching planes using compressed air or using hot gasses from explosive charges, as a science project.

This is HUGE!

Minister of National Defense Güler:

''Türkiye can no longer fit into its container. One end is in Somalia, one end is in Bosnia, one end is in Azerbaijan, and the other end is in Central Asia... Turkey is now in these geographies. Therefore, the Turkish Army needs everything.

We are building larger aircraft carriers. "We will also build a plane that takes off and lands vertically."

The defense ministry's interest in navalized aircraft with vertical landing capability is very big news, but I think the real punch line in this statement is the other, 'TAF needs everything.' The development of indigenous capacity will encourage the defense bureaucracy more and more every day, and the process will proceed exponentially from here. I mean this everything includes strategic deterrence to guarantee the survival of the country. We don't need to write it explicitly, we all know it and that's enough.

The tweet was deleted. We should, maybe, not read too much into it. I watched some of the interview. I guess the poster of the tweet has paraphrased Güler's words "Yapıcaz. Yapıcaz." at 17:03 in the video(I timestamped it).

Hürjet_____12 000 kg
Kızılelma___8 500 kg
Anka3______7 000 kg
Akıncı______6 000 kg
TB3________1 450 kg
İf the given numbers are correct, this is very detailed information that I haven't found in internet.
Look at MTOW of Hürjet 12t , Anka 3 7t happens also heavy.

That's why we need manned and unmanned baby Hürjets which empty weight is 2-2,5 t and MTOW maximum 3.5 t.

From the list only Hürjet value is estimated from the Korean FA-50 Fighting Eagle which is 12.215 kg. All other values are official.

EDIT: American Boeing-Saab T-7 Red Hawk plane powered with the same engine weighs 12.125 kg with first flight in 2016.

Hürjet is newer than both Korean and American planes so it should weigh less than the others as it would presumably use lighter materials.

Interestingly no one else recognized that it is a detailed post :unsure:, you would think there are specialists on the forum.

Bro, then you have not looked at the right places. It is readily available as I have found within few minutes.

Hürjet’s MTOW was never given. As it is essentially a trainer that resembles KAI-T50 it is logical to assume to be similar to that plane’s. But if we are going to tweak this jet and produce an LCA that is going to take off from an AC, then we should be looking at a jet fighter similar to Gripen E. That plane has an MTOW of 16500 kg and an F414 power plant.

KE in its current form with that underpowered Ukrainian engine will be hard pushed to have a maximum 6000 kg. This was the specified MTOW to start with. Later with improved power plant it was suggested to have 8000 kg MTOW. With twin engines over 12000 kg MTOW value was also mentioned.

As current Anka 3 was flying with Ukrainian engine, it’s MTOW was given as 6.5 tons. Then at Tusas site it was revised to 7 ton. Jane’s defence magazine quotes 7 ton too. But with TF6K in place it should surpass this easily. When it is furnished with twin TF6K engines then we will have a real monster deep strike bomber.

Aknci with 2 x 450hp engines was a 4.5-5 ton MTOW UAV. But with 2 x 750 hp engines it became a 6000 kg MTOW uav. With 2 x 900hp PT6 engines and even with 1000hp engines it may even be a 7000kg MTOW UAV if redesigned accordingly.

So it is all relative to how they are evolved and utilised and designed.

Within the scope of the national aircraft carrier project, the design activities of which are continuing by the Design Project Office of our Naval Forces Command, a delegation consisting of expert personnel from the Design Project Office and the Naval Air Command, under the chairmanship of the Technical Director of the Naval Forces, Engineer Colonel Cihan Ağaçayak, met with the Italian Naval Forces Design Project Office in order to exchange information. An inspection visit was made to the aircraft carrier ITS CAVOUR.

In this context; Italian Navy Commander Vice Admiral Aurelio De Carolis, Italian Naval Forces Ship Projects Department Head Rear Admiral Marco Tomassetti, and our Rome Ambassador Mr. Ömer Güçlük were visited and meetings were held.
