What kind of engine will they use as an interim until the TF-10000 is ready ?

Either an engine from Ivchenko Progress, or you start directly with the TF-6000 and build as many prototypes as it takes to make it work.

I hope they prepare the runway in a short time. Therefore, the pavement should be handled and most probably pavement surface should bring to the same friction level as on TCG Anadolu in order her to test in similar conditions.

I hope so, lack of stealth nozzle due to commonality with F35B is one of the biggest weaknesses of the platform. I hope KAAN is more like F22 nozzle, and I think due to the placement of vertical stabilizers it is even more crucial for IR stealth.

New variant of ŞİMŞEK with a sharper and smoother profile, likely for higher speeds (no, not supersonic). I guess TUSAŞ wants to keep ŞİMŞEK alongside SÜPER ŞİMŞEK as the cheaper alternative.

Şimşek/Süper Şimşek will be a manace to any foe. I see chaff flare dispensers on the wings for the less stealthy one. Those chaff flare dispenser will probably be able to launch smart RF decoys in addition to chaff and flare. Now think about that this thing will also mimic RCS of a fighter while our jammers jam the shit out of battlespace. Tell you what it is the doomsday scenario for any air defense. Air inlets are positioned on top of the Şimşek variants so it will be harder to detect by ground radars if the mission commander opts to use them as cruise missiles. BLOS range is given as 700km, LOS range is 200km :)
