4 definite and 12 optional initial order for Hurjet has been received by Tusas.
Currently 2 prototypes that will fly are being built. One of these will be for a trainer aircraft , the other in CAS format.

What is the job of a CAS aircraft specifically?
Like can it engage aerial targets in a dog fight and fire WVR, BVR, and Air-to-ground missiles or does it have other functions?

No CAS means close air support Its for air to ground missions Its not CAP (Combat air patrol).

Hurjet CAS version can also be identified as Light attack aircraft.
So as well as being a Close Air Support craft it will have capability to perform light attack duties. This version will have a Leonardo built Aesa radar on board and will have access to the use of all Turkish built weapons and missiles such as SOM, CAKIR, HGK, KGK, Gokdogan, Bozdogan.

Mr İsmail Demir: "In the F-16 issue, we need to look ahead and prepare MMU, HÜRJET and KIZILELMA perfectly."

USA, Russia, GB, France, China, Sweden, S.Korea, Japan, all have aviation industry.
Swedwn and S.Korea rely on US subsystems and engineering help. Japan did too however their first completely indigenous project is advancing rapidly and is 5 gen. However if Turkey can really mass produce KE and TFX with high indigenous rate and propulsion systems it would definitely be only the 6th country in the world able to do this and probably on the top 3 in terms of engineering skills only behind US and UK.

They rely on US Subsystem as we do. High indigenous rate on our plane doesn’t mean we are autarke. We got helped from Sweden, US and France also.

But the percentage is very different.

Ours would be more comparable or better than Indian AMCA

Agree. What about Japan, S.Korea, Sweden. Or even Israel (regarding on capabilities)?
Japan and UK work together, nothing solid RN but their design looked like TF-X from Farnborough.

S.Korea still 4.5 gen and years needed for 5th gen mods

Sweden is not accepted into Tempest kekw

Israel can probably build a 5-6th gen, but I am sure they wont
