If we make 25K pound dry trust with the bypass around 1 it means kaan will have realatively stealth engine and more range but inferior on high altitues,so they will decide more optimum bypass rate
I mean more range is something we definitely desire. To me the biggest detail is electricity generation. I think F35 has 400kVA output, vs 60kVa of F16 C/D and even F22 is likely something around 100kVA.

Let's hope that TF 6000 comes good. Doesn't KAAN need an engine producing several times the thrust TF 6000 will produce? ie a very different engine

in my very limited knowledge size is not everything with engines (there comes the point where they became heavy) so far higher thrust requirments were achieved in a way by seeking larger fans and lighter construction. Most effective way of doing it is new generation blisk or IBR technology i.e discs and blades are integrated and we have this technology with satisfactory level of achievements in single crystal turbine blade casting process techniquies and special material technologies with projects like Cevher 1-2

IMHO we have a single turbofan engine program with 2 products (for now)

Actually, F-35 has 3x generator each with 80kw output. But one of them is emergency. So it doesn't run. Hence, the sustained output is 160kw.

While for F-22 it has two generator each with 65kw output. Hence, in total it is 130kw.

I've read that it was upgraded to or was planned to be upgraded from initial 160 to 400

BTW, It was said (unofficial) by TEI officials that the TEI TF-6000 engine would be delivered for testing in KE & Anka-3 in mid-2025. 🥳

TF-10K will break new ground in Turkish engine engineering. It is truly a historic step, and we cannot emphasize its importance enough.
(Imagine if only TR could design and produce its own natural gas cycle power plants and maintain their operational continuity with its own engineering within decade. Consider not only the Turkish market, but also the surrounding markets, which are increasingly facing deepening supply problems or are growing very fast in this energy supply area. This area alone could lead to exponential sectoral growth in the field of derivative turbine engines above the general expectation. Not to mention military projects. )
How come Türkiye can’t produce its own natural gas cycle power plant. We have enough tech firms and engineers, so what’s holding us back ?

Temel Kotil: "Hopefully, we will start the rapid ground tests of KAAN in the first week of December. We plan to do the rejected takeoff tests in the 3rd week and fly in the 4th week. We have a timer counting down at TAI. When it shows the seconds, hopefully we will have flown. We turned on the Hürjet's afterburner. Once the plane flies, it continues to fly. We want to fly KAAN as soon as possible so that more can follow."

In case the f35k progress is not on par with the goals, is there any chance that Turkiye will get engine from Russia or China?

Yeah i think so both of them will accept but as u know head of TEI and other Turkisj officials said that Turkiye alone can build an aircraft engine for KAAN.
If we ask for help from china or russia , west againt will do what iy did with S400 .
Some sanctions for some components like engines of warships or ejection seats of Kaan and f16 and no more than that but Turkiye can withstand without those because has strong defence industry itself
F16 will go reserve or replaced . Warships components replaced and so on .
Just like with Wescam of Tb2 that Cats replaced it . Or Ts1400 that replaced US engine one or Altay tank engine that will be replaced with national / Korean one.
If West goes full retard abd put massive economical sanctions than our roads will be splint forever , every US soldier and their equipement on Turkiye will be kick out , Aslo will work to kick them out from syria , iraq , qatar , + 20 other countries .
big Tarifs will be placed on west products and on their transport ships if they pass bosphorus etc etc .
The world will be more devided in two . west vs east

HÜRJET continues its dual-cockpit, high-tach performance tests.

After burner and pass tests were successfully carried out.
