The first photo is one of the posters used by the Turkish Armed Forces Foundation in old times. The one on the right shows what happens when these seeds grow and flourish.

*The poster says "build your own aircraft" under a drawing of an fighter jet. Probably a reference to the embargoes of the 70s.

Trivia: If I am not wrong, KAAN means ear in Indian (Kağan, meaning king of kings, is used as Khan in South Asia). Given the huge radome on the front of the aircraft and the different compartments reserved for the various radar systems, the Hindi meaning in a way defines the aircraft. Meanwhile AMCA, the name of India's next generation fighter jet project, means father's brother, in Turkish dialects. AMCA was one of the earliest of the non-US next-generation fighter jet programs started one of the earliest, which in a way is an irony with its Turkish means. Young people who were waiting for AMCA have become uncles today. :)

Subcontractors continue to send congratulatory messages... PAVO group is one of the subcontractors in the supply of power systems.


Details of Volo Kompozit, one of the world's most distinguished composite manufacturers.

Canopy production was realized by this our company. Turkiye had previously been embargoed for canopies on more than one platform.

*

If you want to slow Turkiye down, even give it systems it doesn't want. If you want to speed it up, embargo it with moronic populism and your outdated perception of the world. (Hey, national interest editor, I know you're here. Write this down also.)

Or try to buy the subcontractors or make them go bankrupt.

Use foreign company to order parts, stall the process, delay, add cost to the subcontractors to make their life a living hell.

Only way to protect the subcontractors would be to make contracts like how F35 with Turkey was made, delays and such not resulting in fines and such.

otherwise we would be hauling in lots of USD from the delayed delivery.

Neither F-22 nor KAAN has Canards.
What are you talking about?

He's talking about the movement of the elevators at take-off. It looks a bit excessive. Some speculate that the flight computer is correcting the pilot's input.
