So small china (taiwan) can produce high tech chips while huge superpower china cant? Bro how u finds those kinds of infro?
It's more about the kinds of chips produced. Chips used in home appliances etc. can be manufactured with a serious amount of investment. The production capability of the really advanced stuff is considered a strategic asset, no one really sells it. Taiwan has that, and China doesn't.

Mate, how advanced a country is at one technology or the other has nothing to do with the country's size. That is simply illogical as hell, if that was true we would be living in a completely different world.

Taiwan is more advanced in microchip technology than anybody else on the planet, including China and even US. The most advanced chips are all made in Taiwan. Did you really think US was doing everything it can to protect Taiwan from China out of the goodness of their hearts? No, both the reason for their invasion and US protection from it is because of their microchips and semiconductors.

And none of this information is hard to find at all, it is literally all over the Internet, you just have to be willing to read it.

Engines of ANKA-3 are produced by TEI? I really wonder.

What do you think guys : ANKA-3 with BVR A2A missiles wouldn't be stealth LOETERING air defense system?

With the help of Datalink from ground radars , own AESA radar, passive Sensors, ANKA-3 little bit could cover Turkish airspace.

Its maximum altitude is 40,000 feet, and can last 10 hours at 30,000 feet, its cruise speed is 250 knots (288 mph) with a top speed of 425 knots (489 mph).

Such platform could be nightmare of enemy's fighters.

Depends, do we have smart buoy network in place in Mavi Vatan? Some could be bigger or placed on some rocks as forward positions with SR radar for early warning or passive relay. Anything in an established network that catches on something smelly could be useful.

if a forward position sniffs out an enemy plane we could have great benefit of redirecting patrol duty to that area whilst 2-3 others akinci go airborne while Hürjet or Kaan is prepped.

I’m not sure if any pilot want to play how-many-gforce-can-you-handle with ucavs. But as you probably can see they will be relying on stealth to avoid detection, and that is the biggest factor imo.

That we need to prep for.

Afaik, none of flying wing UAVs in ANKA III class has it own AESA sensor. Because there is simply not enough space to fit it in.

İ meant over mainland not offshore duties . ANKA-3 could reduce work hours of F-16s.

However 7/24 rotating several ANKA-3s over Egean shores would be lethal and surprising. İnstalling several AESA into ANKA-3 is not a big deal. For instance On wings .

Still i haven't got the answer, currently TEI can produce engines of ANKA-3? Which engines are supposed for ANKA-3?

I remember it was called the Ukrainian engine. Anyway, we don't have much choice.

TF6000 being built by TEI as a 5th generation engine is suitable and most likely meant for Anka3.

There seems to be plenty of space for Aesa radar T/R modules placement if it is so willed.

Until TF6000 is ready an engine like the one on KE, most likely Ukranian (I had rather see an RR Adour on it though) will be powering Anka3.

AFAIR the engine was faulty and due to the damage inflicted on Sich motor company facilities, a replacement was not expected anytime soon.

İt seems TF6000 precious for us currently.
I am looking forward to seeing TF6000.

AESA radars on the planes (or drone in this instance) is not the same thing as slapping AESA plates on something like Gökdeniz for example. If it was that easy we would've plastered our F-16s with them and called it a day.

We don't know how much power Anka-3 will be able to generate, whether it will be able to support Murad or not. It is not mentioned on Tusaş' website and I can't remember it being mentioned. Let's just see it fly first before getting ahead of ourselves, having a flying wing drone is an enormous achievement by itself already.

Let us assume that we have a UCAV with integrated KARAT, TOYGUN, IRIS sensors and carries IIR guided missiles.
Can this UCAV shoot down head on incoming BVR missiles?

Depends on the missile, if you have a dedicated counter missile than why not

TOYGUN has been designed by Aselsan as an Electro-Optical-Targeting-System for the MMU. It can detect passively any threats against the plane and has been specifically designed for a 5th generation aircraft.

KARAT is an Infra-Red-Search&Track system again designed for MMU. Similar to the one in F35 and will be in front, under the nose of the aircraft.

IRIS-100 is an early warning system for incoming threats.

These are all equipments and systems to add to the survivability of the MMU and to enable it to attack air and ground targets.

To fit them on a UCAV like KE should logically impart the same capabilities to the UCAV too. Provided you also have the right ammunition to achieve the end result.

Could a KAAN equipped with those sensors, send the necessary information to its loyal wingman, which is not equipped with those sensors? So could the loyal wingman of KAAN act as a IIR guided missile carrier platform, only to shoot down BVR missiles?

Isn't Toygun the Electro optical Targeting system and KARAT is the IRST?
