I personally believe that while Baykar and TAI are striving for the 10-15 year urgent requirements, this period has the conditions to enable this more company diversification. In this process, the remaining needs with low capital and human resources requirements should be solved with the diversity of companies to be provided. While TAI and Baykar evolve towards another league, space should be created in the lower league. This actually how aerospace things evolved in US during cold war.
At this point, I think we should talk about the increase in the number of end system designers and system integrator companies. There are at least 2-3 institutions/companies in TR that can realise the heavy class cargo UAV you mentioned, other than Baykar. All electronics and mechanics that can be used on the aircraft are ready. There are more than ten companies that will produce its structures. They can use state resources/ state-owned hangars and airbases for final assembly and testing. Even without SSB support, the development of this type of aircraft can be projected as highly feasible. If there is SSB support, developing this type of vehicle will be a piece of cake for the Turkish aerospace industry. Especially on the UAV side, there is now a very serious ecosystem. In fact, it has such a wide spectrum that it has very few equivalents in the world. The reason why it is not so visible at the moment is that ambitious projects are centred around two or three main end-system manufacturers.
Indeed 2nd tier companies should step up. Titra is one example, they just exported their 200kg capacity cargo helicopter to Malaysia.
the benefit of Baykar doing it is that it would instantly become an export success
