Selçuk Bayraktar: We have now locked our gaze beyond the atmosphere and into space. We have established our space-related initiative. Hopefully, we aim to make serious contributions to this adventure of our country in 5-10-15 years.

The production quality has become close to perfection in the 2nd prototype and will improve further in the future.

By the way, the design on the right Kizilelma (second prototype) in this image looks different from first prototype. The nose part is longer, the center fuselage is narrower and wing form is different from first prototype. The distance between canard and wing is longer in second prototype.

Besides, second prototype has leading edge slats on wings compared to first prototype and wing junction points are no longer visible. Second prototype of Kizilelma looks more like a Gripen to me. @Combat-Master

Mr Bayraktar: "KIZILELMA will be able to perform aggressive maneuvers thanks to a certain level of autonomy. Of course, you will not do these maneuvers from the cabin, the plane will offer you options. Avoidance, engagement. These will be with artificial intelligence."

I said this before unmanned drones or unmanned planes will be reaching outer space or space itself.

Human body no matter how much they train and their diet still have limitations.
