Turkey started development of first national fighter aircraft

Post by Elfot on Sun Nov 06, 2011 12:37 pm

Turkey has officially launched a project to build its first national fighter aircraft, according to a statement Tuesday by the Undersecretariat for the Defense Industry, or SSM, and the Turkish Aerospace Industries, or TAI.

The project also includes the design and development of a training jet, said TAI general manager Muharrem Dörtkaşlı.

“We are starting the project of developing a national fighter aircraft,” Dörtkaşlı told journalists at a meeting in Ankara, the Anatolia news agency reported. “Along with [state-run] Havelsan, Aselsan and Roketsan, companies from the private sector will contribute to the project.”

“This is going to be a national project,” Dörtkaşlı said, though he added that the country is looking for a non-U.S. partner to develop a second air fleet, as an alternative to its existing F-16s and F-35s to come.

South Korea’s KAI and Sweden’s Saab are the two possible partners, according to a senior Turkish procurement official who spoke to the Hürriyet Daily News on Monday.

The undersecretariat decided to initiate talks with TAI to design a national aircraft and a training jet during a Dec. 15, 2010.
