MMU doesn't look nearly as agile as F22 and F22 has bigger wingspan than MMU despite smaller size. I seriously hope MMU can lose some weight and be made more agile. It looks like F22 but operational wise its gonna perform like F15 I feel like
I think it would be little more agile than F15.

With domestic engine solution, I hope they introduce TVC for later blocks.

Wingspan isn't everything. TF-X has been designed with HIGH maneuverability in mind.

At this point I want to bring up this earlier post of mine regarding the agility of the TFX.

Kızılelma rocks, TFX follows !

Prf. Hayrani Öz made the calculations and I made the data conversions and visualization.
Which plane makes the level roll turn easier.
The larger the polygon area the better the performance.
TFX engine power increases will make it even more agile.

Until now, the reason for the early first flight was touted as a learning experience for the engineers to see their design in the air and outside of their computers, so that process would be faster. Kotil also previously iterated the cold war method of building jets. Fast and numerous. He previously said that first flight tests would happen in 2023 and there would be more time for tests on the actual frame but the serial production timeline would not change.

This sentence tho, goes wholly against what was said previously. He literally says "everything". Icarus too once flew a bit close to the sun, and got burned.

From an interview made a day ago regarding HURJET...

TAI CEO Temel Kotil:

"We performed static testing on our static test prototype today. Our aircraft performed perfectly under full load."

"Uçağımız pırıl pırıl yerinde durdu, kırılmadı" 😎

EDIT: Forgot to mention if it was TF-X or Hürjet sorry :/

2026 is a bit early IMHO. Aselsan can deliver BURFIS in late 2025 at the earliest mid-2026 is a more likely date. Serial production of TFX is very likely to start in 2028 but TuAF can get a few TFX in late 2026 for testing purposes.

I'll believe MIUS but stay sceptical about MMU. So far, its only claims.
