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.


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.
hydrogen reactor ?

It could be 2011-2013. These days, many young people, who are following in the perception studies of politician or journalist trying to draw Baykar Tech into daily political debates; unfortunately do not know the history of this company, which was in face of risk of being closed down uav operations and has come to these days by fighting the bureaucracy in the country.

Apart from the fact that the video was made in memory of Özdemir Bayraktar, there are other things it shows. We have so many valuable, matchless people, people who have devoted their lives to the Turkish defense industry like Ekber Onuk, or our pashas who paid the heaviest price for the homeland... Very valuable people whose sacrifices will not be forgotten inshallah, may God give them long and healthy life.

perhaps the navalized version would be.
İ know. What would the people - who crossified me in d.pk when i offered it -do as seeing Hürjet operating from TCG ANADOLU?

Want to see a stealth T-70.
A helicopter could be really stealth?

But the light fighter "Hürjet " born with low RCS could be transformed into a cheap, light, really stealth fighter.

Current DAS (Defensive aide Suites) and EW systems modern aircrafts have onboard, makes it somehow unnecessary to have such capability.
If you could get behind an a2a missile and fire a faster missile at it, you could hit it. But that is not a very likely scenario to happen. If your Aesa radar has 360 degree coverage to target a missile coming to you from behind, may be you could hit an incoming missile.
But DIRCM, DAS and extensive Electronic Warfare to jam incoming missiles are still the best method to disable an a2a missile. Also the improved agility of your plane is important. When excessively sharp turns are executed, a2a missiles could lose radar lock and miss their targets. With an unmanned plane like KE much sharper turns than any manned plane, could be made. This on it’s own is the best evasive method KE has in it’s armoury.

How about rapid maneuvering the fighter towards to the incoming missile, and targeting it with an A2A from the front? (when there is enough time)

probability to hit (the vertical thing/rectangular near the circle), i tried a supersonic flight at 35.6k feet (616 knots) vs Akıncı with 230 knots at 38.6k feet.

I can do a better one but i didnt have much time

More closer to rectangular shape = better chance to hit

Nice now china can copy our drones, our software and everything we shouldn't be selling pakistan anything, we should sell it If they can take their illegal refugees back to pakistan.
It cannot interfere with closed source software. I don't think China, which makes hypersonic missiles, is itching to study SDB. Even if you don't pay special attention to turn this forum into the DAYI place on Facebook, have some respect for someone who chooses to buy from you when there is a chance to buy dozens of drones from China.

A configuration we should see on our UAVs. Skyfix COMINT and AES 210 V/V2 ELINT systems and SKYJAM Communications jammer. DCoMPASS EO with a AMPS Stand Off EO system that is capable of viewing 10s (Maximum range of 200~ km) of kilometers away with high resolution. Hermes 900 can also use a range of SAR radars instead of AMPS.

Can SDB be used on wing points?
I don't think it will be a problem to carry it as single and double. I think what you probably mean is smart pneumatic quad rack.

If I am not mistaken, in the past years, there was information published about the weight capacity of the each pylons under the wing of the AKINCI system. If anyone remembers, please add it. In the Baykar sharing of AKINCI's elephant walk, it carried KGK-82 and TEBER-82 on the pylons between the engine and the fuselage, and SOM under the fuselage. Assuming that this configuration is valid for AKINCI-B, we can say that it can carry a weight of around 1200 kg in the main three weapon stations. Another important anecdote is that Haluk Bayraktar recently stated that AKINCI's maximum capacity is around 2 tons. In fact, the weapon load shown in the elephant walk already exceeded the lifting capacity specified in the specs. In short, what you are saying may be possible on the AKINCI-C.

The day when double-seat TFX which will takes off with domestic engines by 2030s, will fly with Baykar MIUS and TUSAŞ TISU fighter and bomber drones integrated with Gökhan, Akbaba and SOM missiles in wing formation, we will have dropped an atomic bomb into the hearts of the enemies. After that day, nothing will ever be same again.
