hydrogen reactor ?Temel Kotil, General Manager of Turkish Aerospace Industries, delivered a speech entitled "Aviation and Space Industry" on the last day of the "Summit Kartal - Entrepreneurship and Innovation Summit". Two headlines are of remarkable importance in the speech.
"More than today's of developments to date lie before us. For example, imagine that you have tamed Hydrogen, that is, you have built a hydrogen reactor for mobile systems. This is currently being worked on, especially the Germans spend a lot of money. If you tame the hydrogen and put it in an airplane, you can increase the flight distances extraordinarily that you can even go to Mars, with the energy that does not end easily. Your generation will see it, but be the doer, not the watcher. Don't be dazzled by today's success. We are making great progress in the defense industry and we have success, but do not be dazzled. There is more and it will come. There is so much more. Turkey is making a revolution in the defense industry, but you (youth) need to make the second revolution."
Now, how is Turkey making a revolution? Turkey is making its own autonomous UAV. As Bayraktar and TUSAŞ, we are building TB, Akıncı, Kızılelma, Aksungur, Anka and -we will have another new aircraft here- UAVs. This is really important. The drone is waiting above, guarding our borders when the enemy comes. We are making the National Combatant, the fifth generation fighter jet. The Americans have two planes F22, F35. The Russians have Su-57 aircraft. There is also the Chinese J-20 aircraft. And the Turks have Turkish warplane, the National Combatant Aircraft. These are the fifth generation fighter jets."
The biggest thing I've learned in the defense industry is that if it's about the defense of the country, you can't depend on anyone. When we need to buy something, foreigners from abroad are so wayward that there are problems even in the systems we pay for. For example, the problem with Germany was very interesting: Gökbey's gearbox was to be made. We went, we came, it's not done. When we did better gearbox ourselves, the Germans sent it immediately. Thank God, Turkey's defense industry is self-sufficient at the moment. But you have to put it above where you take it. This country needs you. Turkiye is doing very well, but that shouldn't put you at ease. Because there is something bigger than this," he concluded.
Türk Havacılık ve Uzay Sanayii (TUSAŞ) Genel Müdürü Temel Kotil, Türkiye'nin savunma sanayisinde devrim yaptığını belirterek, "Milli muharip yapıyoruz, beşinci nesil savaş uçağı. Amerikalıların F22, F35 iki uçağı var. Rusların Su-57 uçağı var. Bir de Çinlilerin J-20 uçağı var. Bir de Türklerin...www.defensehere.com
It is time to add one more item to 2023 expectations. There is still no official announcement about the project, but almost all authorities have somehow approved it.
