Check this out.
Tail is written PT-5 it is like prove we seeing all time same UAV on video.

So at beginning UAV is landing no CAT on back!
little bit later on video 1:10 CAT is visible at back . Then little bit forward on video CAT is not visible at all


DO I understand that correctly here CAT on Akinci is able to pop down and pull in inside of UAV body?
AFAIK it's retractable.

According to Ukrainian sources, the country will supply an AI-450 Turboprop engine for Akıncı UAV and AI-25TLT Turbofan engine for MIUS from 2021 to 2030. In the 10-year period, Ukraine is expected to export more than 500 engines to Baykar with a total value of more than $600 million.

do we know how many internal hard points Kızılelma will have?
English Wikipedia says it will have 2(estimated). and they base this info on Baykar's own data.

And what about TF6000?
The number mentioned (500 units) does not leave too much desire to implement on KE.
Plus, this news is from November 2021. A war happened since then. Are there any developments the engine selection for KE?

500 engines is nothing. Akinci alone will need more than 500 engines by 2030. I.e. there will be plenty of room for domestic engines

Copycats are starting to emerge guys😂😄😄😂
Baykar brand became so popular that people are copying their designs without even waiting to see gow effective the platform is
That is way too good and hopefully Baykarcan keep their lead in the UAV race regardless of the competition

There have been quite a few TB-2 crude copies but none of which successful yet. We'll have to see this one operational first.

It's very unlikely for it to be materialize. There has to be a track record. On their website, there are only rotary-wing small quadcopters as their products. You can't make the leap from that to a HALE drone. Baykar has developed Bayraktar Mini UAV, TB1 and TB2 before beginning to work on AKINCI. Therefore, that model from Paras won't be a contemporary of AKINCI, imo.

Same vibes

Jokes aside, the AKINCI system has a very accurate wing and fuselage structure in terms of its intended tasks and qualifications. Therefore, it is natural to refer to it.

However, in the AKINCI system, the aircraft itself is still a small part of the whole system and doctrine. The main reference should not be the bodywork.

Selçuk Bayraktar : "There was another ground test just before I came here. It's counting the days to its maiden flight. We are in the final stages of Kızılelma, which will be Turkey's first unmanned fighter aircraft."

Just to be clear, by "counting days to its maiden flight" he doesn't mean a few days or weeks. He reiterated the year 2023 for the first flight. Here's the article,
