What do you guys think about a single seat multi-role variant of Hürjet? An aircraft similar in performance to JF-17 with advanced avionics and sensors. I think it would be a good lower cost supplement to the MMU.

It will work roughly as the F16 in the Air to Ground operations. But in a dogfight F16 has got more manouvrability. We still have no AESA radar.We are currently designing but I have no idea when they will be matured. I dont even know that we will put AESA radar on Hürjet.

While we still have the F16s they will perfectly do the multi-role missions considering the precision munitions we now have. We rather need a speedy interceptor for close range interception. I would rule out bomber roles and concentrate on interception and close range air dominance. This plane can also be operated unmanned. However for foreign markets a multirole could be more advantageous. Just my two cents.

I remember that they also plan a single seat version.

Egypt, Greece, Israel, Russia are all investing heavily in their air force and our ambitions in the region are growing. I don't think our current F-16's will be enough for the next 10 years to project our influence in the region. As things stand, we don't really have a good foreign stop-gap option until MMU is ready for full scale production. If we can get a multi-role Hürjet ready by 2025, we can fill the gap while decreasing our dependence to foreign suppliers.

A quick google tells me that Hurjet planned first flight is around 2022. Is this on track as it stands right now?

Bro, Hürjet with 13m total length will be just 1m shorter than JAS-39A Gripen and will have an engine that will be almost the same thrust level with Gripen's Volvo RM-12 turbofan having a power ratio around 18000lbf with afterburner. The CAS variant of Hürjet will be a brutal aircraft with its features. Hürjet will have a nose radar but I am not sure If It will be an AESA or not.

Bro, if its AESA we could do it right?
If i remember right TF-X AESA should be ready by 2022, couldn't we adapt that to hurjet?

Indeed bro, Aselsan is developing two different AESA and one mechanical steering radar at present but I didn't see the name of Hurjet in any documents related to AESA so I suspect If Hurjet will receive AESA or not.

What is the probaply nose diameter of hürjet. Tvc capable ej-2000 or tvc capable ws-10b and aselsan aesa radar can turn hürjet poor mans 4.5 gen fighter. Also we can integrate him dorsal spine for integrated ew suit and cft for longer range.

STIRLING DYNAMICS AWARDED NEW LOADS AND AEROELASTICS CONSULTANCY CONTRACT

Hurjet 2020

16/09/2020
Stirling Dynamics has been awarded a new contract from Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) to provide technical assistance in the areas of loads and aeroelastics for the Hürjet aircraft programme. The Hürjet is a twin-seat, single-engine supersonic advanced trainer and light combat aircraft, which will replace the Turkish Airforce’s T-38 trainers.
This contract builds on previous support provided by Stirling Dynamics, which was initial consultancy to support TAI up to the Hürjet’s preliminary design review (PDR). Under the new contract, we will be supporting TAI’s engineering team as they work towards critical design review (CDR). Our engineers will be providing support in several formats involving training and guidance, expert review, and off-site work packages. Technical areas of interest include flight and gust loads, buffet, flutter, and validation testing.
We are well placed to carry out this work due to our extensive experience supporting new aircraft design programmes across a range of aircraft through to certification and having an extensive background and proficiency in aircraft loads and aeroelastics. Henry Hackford, Stirling’s Aerospace Technical Services Business Unit Manager, commented: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work TAI again on their indigenous aircraft development programme. The Hürjet contract is the realisation of a long-standing dialogue with TAI and provides an exceptional opportunity for us to demonstrate our key strengths.”

TAI is expecting to conduct the Hürjet’s maiden test flight in 2022.
