A stealth interceptor/air superiority fighter with 100+kW 2000+ modules GaN LPIR loaded with 200+ km range ramjet Gokhan missiles should give pause to anyone including Su-57, F-35, J-20 and even F-22. I am most curious about it's actual RCS & max altitude. F-22 with 65.000 feet could have a great advantage against TF-X with only 55.000 feet planned ceiling.
Wdym by "actual RCS" RCS is not a constant value

The TF-X's service ceiling has been updated from 55,000 feet to 60,000 feet for the first prototype, possibly domestic engines producing more power will allow 65,000 feet
To be as good as F 22, you need to have TVC. At that altitude, flaps, horizontal and vertical stabilizers alone cannot provide desirable maneuverability.

When Turkiye starts to remove the cloak on Ramjet missiles, it will create a new effects on the world agenda, just like our aviation projects. I hope that some of them will be allowed to be shown in a few month and a new atmosphere will be experienced.

"The US Navy's main fighters, the F-35C and the F/A-18E, both have a top speed of Mach 1.6, while the FC-31 is reportedly capable of reaching speeds as fast as Mach 1.8. (The F-35C is limited to operation on just one US carrier.)"

You can also check, you know, wikipedia. Where have you seen that mentions mach 2?
Just because someone is lazy and writes mach 2 doesn’t mean it’s going to do that. Stop randomly derailing or returning to old topics.

TAI General Manager Temel Kotil:

A young man in the MMU team said to me: I am making this plane for my grandchildren, so that they will not get into trouble. The defense industry has really come to a place.

We only buy 3 components of MMU from abroad. These are also things that we can do. We will also make the engine locally.

My, how quickly we've forgotten all the nay-sayers from as recently as last year, going all the way back to 2014, claiming it would be impossible to have TFX roll out by 2023. It would take at least 20 years, they said, or impossible for Turkiye to do altogether.

TAI has proven they are capable of meeting and even beating their projected timelines for these projects. Clowns on the internet have proven they can't predict anything correctly.

Forget the internet clowns, most of them are trolls. Some products didn't come out according to the timeline, not only for Tai. It's okay, most of them are first time things, it's not easy. Also, overt and covert embargoes.

Valves are no problem. We have a problem with the engine and the ejection seat. I Hope Martin Baker continues to provide us with ejection seats. TFX will make its maiden flight this year. I still can't get my head over this. Also, production of the first Block-10 will start this year. The future is bright indeed.

Yep, they're now making preparations for the second aircraft. The team is pretty busy.

"I Hope" do not help when psudo allies are involved.
No offense just I am trying to understand -> "if you want own thing you must work hard and build it by yourself ".
Hope is thing which help people to lie themself that things will go as they want. Reality never disappoint, when moment come it Kick you in a face, that you remember next time to not lie you self with hope

If you wait for the nationalization of every component, expect another 1–2 years of additional development. We already cannot afford the gap till 2030.

Have some trust in TAI, pretty sure they anticipate every scenario. Hopefully we're talking about easily exchangeable parts with an agenda to reach close to 100% in the near to midterm.
