“UK has lifted ALL defence export restrictions for Turkey”.
As of today all of the restrictions are now lifted and no defence article license request is awaiting confirmation and it seems that the collaboration between TAI and BAE Systems, and Rolls Royce and Kale is going to intensify to bring TFX project closer to reality quicker.

We will probably hear soon more about RR involvement in the Engine development for TF-X. I think the main topics that were discussed with Demir in UK were 1. RR and 2. A possible participation of Turkey in the Tempest program. I do not think Demir would travel to the UK just for RR and being told they are lifting all embargos. There is a deeper story here. Maybe even one that includes the Eurofighter, which I don't believe though.

Do not forget the UK is still looking for further partners as to ease the burden of the program and lower its costs. Turkey is one the few countries with an developed and experienced aerospace industry civilian and military. We would make the perfect partner in the program. Before anyone says "but sweden", there is a zero percent chance UK has given the right to veto to Sweden in the program.

Also I think we would benefit immensely from it too. Know-How gained through the Tempest project could be applied to future Blocks of the TF-X. The one downside for some would probably be the fact that we would have to buy a certain amount of Tempest fighters. But I think it would be worth it.


With RR we could see a prototype engine on probably half a decade and a serial production ready one in a decade maybe even under it. Starting the TF-X serial production in the 2030s with our own engine would give a immense boost in possible exports before the first serial production plane even rolls of the line. Not only that it would defend us against any possible delays due to the US blocking engines for the serial production. Inductin the TF-X without any hiccups would relief the pressure building on the Air Force. Easy Exports would finance the further modification of the plane and R&D.

Probably an educated guess but even a random provincial bumpkin could predict that the UK lifting all restrictions on Turkish arms industry including cooperation with RR would result in major advancements in the TFX project.
I mean this should be a big step otherwise why would they are going to announce it this week ?

This guy talks so much bull probably saw a video from a real defence insider in Turkish and spins it as if he has insider connections, a typical Eurasianist AK fanboy. He was saying Turkey should buy Chinese jets J10 and Jf17 lol and engines lol.
Tw headline says we are proud of being called aktroll.
I suggest not to share any of its post to give him credit. Simply useless.

This guys posts are generally bullshit but considering the things with UK might be true. Any further information guys ? @TheInsider
I'm certain that the talks progressed a lot and we are on the verge of signing a deal but there should be still something on the table otherwise we should have announced a big signing ceremony with the participation of someone of a higher caliber like the UK ambassador etc. Maybe something like that will be announced soon and this guy got the news of this from someone.

Yeah they always say "everything is ok, everything good" but nothing is happening. Soon gr will start flying over our airspace in stealth mode and we still don't know what we are going to do. This is sick

English translation?
Turkey is on the table to acquire American business jet manufacturer SyberJet. The company is developing the SJ30i model: https://tolgaozbek.com/haberler/genel-havacilik/turkiye-is-jeti-imalatcisi-syberjeti-almak-uzere-masada/…
