Turkey has tested a new multi-purpose helicopter T625


Turkey is developing the T625 helicopter from the 2010 of the year. According to the developers of the TAI, the helicopter is designed for both military and commercial applications. The official name of the helicopter at the present time is not, and the index "625" stands for "six-ton ​​- two-engine - five-blade." The Turkish manufacturer claims the helicopter is "completely domestic," but the appearance of the helicopter resembles the machines of the Anglo-Italian company AgustaWestland (now Leonardo Helicopter).

The first prototype of the T625 helicopter, made in a commercial multi-purpose version, was first publicly demonstrated in May 2017 year, but made its first flight just now. The T625 accommodates 12 passengers + 2 crew member. At the first stage, it is supposed to equip with engines LHTEC (Rolls-Royce / Honeywell), in the future it is planned to install Turkish TSI400, but not earlier than 2026. Serial production of the military version is scheduled to begin in 2021 year.

    Turkish helicopter? And his parent is not accidentally AgustaWestland AW139? Already painfully similar.

      It is positioned as 100% of local development and as a competitor of AW139 - perhaps that's why it is similar
