What happened to Kuzgun Turbojet? What happened to Sage indeed?
They went dark some time ago, even their website was down for a while and almost no news about their projects. But if they are hoping to sell Kuzgun to Malaysia, projects are still going, just with an information blackout. Or, that's what it sounds like to me.

If they want to make money, they should make a deal and outsource the production to Roketsan. There will be a lot of demand for their products that they won't be able to meet

Sage is not in the business of making money and they’ve made several systems they later gave to Roketsan for production over the years already.

Sage’s Bozok and Kayı munitions were developed as Roketsan had problems building enough MAMs back in the day.

Baykar delivered the last batch of TB2 unmanned aerial vehicles to the Polish Armed Forces.

The batch includes 6 TB2, 3 ground stations, electro optical sensors, weapons and spare parts.

Poland signed a contract worth 270 million dollars in 2021 for the purchase of 24 Bayraktar TB2s and started receiving the first TB2s in 2022.

During the DSA 2024, the Royal Malaysian Navy showcased a scale model of STM's Ada-class corvette as the Littoral Mission Ship - LMS Batch 2. Naval News' Xavier Vavasseur and Tayfun Ozberk discusses the Turkish corvette's Malaysian configuration . Based the model of the MİLGEM corvette showcased at the Malaysian Navy's booth, the dimensions of the corvette for Malaysia seem the same as the Turkish counterpart. While there are some configuration adjustments, the design appears to adhere closely to the proven Ada-class corvette blueprint. Notably, the primary difference in the LMS Batch 2 Corvette lies in its integration of air defence missiles. Plans entail outfitting the ship with air defense missiles, housed in 2x2-cell Vertical Launch Systems (VLSs) situated in the aft mast area of the vessel. Information gathered by Naval News at the exhibition indicates that the selected air defence missile for LMS Batch 2 is the Haegung (which means "Sea Bow", or Korean Surface-to-Anti Air Missile (K-SAAM), manufactured by the South Korean company Lig NEX1. With these missiles arranged in a quad-pack configuration, a total of 16 Haegung Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAAMs) will be onboard.

HÜRJET will enter the tender in Spain

Spain is looking for new training aircraft to replace its F-5 fighter jets.

Aircrafts that will participate in the tender:
Boeing T-7
Korea Aerospace Industries T-50
Leonardo M-346
TAI HÜRJET


Slim chance but nevertheless just being qualified to enter the tender is an achievement on its own for a newcomer.

Yes, I can’t imagine Hürjet is going to qualify as of now. The alternatives are a better pick.

According to new SIRPI update,

*Bangladesh Army has bought 200 TRG-300 and 500 TRG-230 for $20 millions and $30 millions respectively.

*Bangladesh has ordered 300 Otokar Cobra-2 in total. Previously it was thought to be 102 vehicles. (202 delivered so far)

*Also, 100 Teber guidance kit in total has been delivered by Roketsan for F7BG.


Take all that with a pinch of salt. Really good news if their data is accurate. @Sanchez @Kartal1 @TR_123456 @Knowledgeseeker @Bogeyman @Saithan et al.

Enough ammo for 3 regiments(1 bty TRG-300 & 2 bty TRG-230 in each)

1 Regiment in total. All three batteries can use both TRG-300 and TRG-230 interchangeablely.

The prices for TRG-300 and 230 seem dirt cheap tbh.

The reason is, (I think) BD MoD has signed a strategic MoU with SSB first. Each pruchase is made within the scope of MoU. Hence, we probably pay only as much as TSK pays for domestic procurement.

That does sound like a really good deal :)

Especially if our cooperation with BD ensures that our products (if they live up to expectation) get preferential treatment :)
