The serial production variant is much more handsome and several hundred kg lighter than prototypes. Sonobuoy pods will be integrated for Navy's Aksungur.

Bro, do they change random shape?

I see that TAI still isn't done with this aircraft and they are still developing it.

Any possibility of Aksungur with motorsich turboprop engines?

Higher altitude and higher speed is probably more valuable.
Officially they both have 40k ft. max altitude. But not sure payload affects this. And I am not sure speed really matters for MIT. They would use that for observation and intelligence gathering and I assume endurance would be more valuable.

When you make OWN platform especially for military there are no such thing "finished product".
They Just keep adding idea to platform, analyzing how it behave, building knowlege and according to build plan they prepare some prodcut numbers when TR army request them

It's not just about endurance hours. The role of AKINCI, which will be in MIT's inventory, will most likely be ELINT, COMINT. Wider frequencies mean more power emissions.

What about timed neutralization without requestion from Air Force?

What is the hard thing about integrating cruise missiles to UCAVs btw? Does it require a specific avionic technology?

Because the turbine engine is started by the ram air coming through its inlet the plane has to be fast enough to provide enough pressure. Akıncı tops at 362 km/h.

There is a couple issues about it.

Usually cruise missile engines start up by blowing air coming from speed. But Akıncı is quite slow compared to an F-16. Speed is not enough for turning the engine fan and start it.

Another issue is gliding. SOM travels like 80kms with gliding only. Slower launch speed shortens the gliding range. Maybe even slow enough for missile to "stall".
