Saudi Arabia has not been a reliable partner for Türkiye because Türkiye was not a reliable partner for them either. We didn't have the strength to be relied on. Türkiye was nobody; no military power with only soldiers but not weapons; no economic power with no technology and capital; no power in diplomacy which could not even defend its citizens. Today's Türkiye is a different one; military power is there; diplomacy is there; technology is getting there; economy size is respectable. They can now rely on Turkish military power for protection and Turkish banking system to park their money. We are living in a different world now.
What’s the payload of 4 Mam-L? And what about to integrate EW-systems?
Mam-L missiles weigh 22 kg each. But they have missile release mechanisms that add extra weight. One mustn’t forget the weight of Electro Optical laser targeting machinery either. (CATS etc)What’s the payload of 4 Mam-L? And what about to integrate EW-systems?
Thats really new for me. I always thougt on external EW system like Koral.Mam-L missiles weigh 22 kg each. But they have missile release mechanisms that add extra weight. One mustn’t forget the weight of Electro Optical laser targeting machinery either. (CATS etc)
What EW system they use is a secret. But that too should add a good deal of weight. However Aselsan’s ground system, Vural EW system should be used together with TB2 to take full advantage.
Does addition of the satcom, decrease the payload capacity? Can both orignal tb-2 and tb-2 with satcom carry same number of ammunition?
That is the logical assumption. Because you have satcom capability you can not omit LOS communication. So you would have both. That means extra weight that eats in to your maximum payload capacity.Does addition of the satcom, decrease the payload capacity? Can both orignal tb-2 and tb-2 with satcom carry same number of ammunition?
The first TB2’s during Euphrates Shield operations were very heavily electronically jammed and could not function properly. AnkaS UAVs with Satcom capabilities were sent in to take over from TB2s. It was only towards the end of the operation that the TB2s became resistant to EW jamming. Similar case was observed in Karabakh where very heavy EW jamming was applied to the TB2s - according to Armenian sources Russians’ latest EW programs were used -. But they only lasted about an hour or two before TB2’s had adapted and started bombing again.Thats really new for me. I always thougt on external EW system like Koral.
You mean Aksungur.
Akıncı TİHA, which will start firing tests with the Kuzgun, is equipped with TEİ's PD-170 engines.
When we get rid of akp, instead of giving everything to baykar our state company will produce uçağa too.There could be a TISU. Just because it's a render, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. TAI simply has their priorities. And who knows? They might be awaiting further developments on the engine side. The realization of the program could be pretty quick.
TBH, it was TB-2 itself that made its own advertisement. Karabağ first, then Ukraine. They fucking made a song about it.Right now, TAI has 12.000 employees. More than 2.000 are working on TFX. If needed, more employees can be taken who works on other projects. And yes, much more employees are needed.
About our government, if they would invest more in advertising and selling on TAI products, more income could reach in R&D.
But dont let us devite in TAI and Baykar camps like typical turkish idiots, as we talk about a football club.
