Azerbaijan becomes interested in Turkish turboprop attack aircraft Hurkus

50

Azerbaijan is likely to purchase the Hurkus trainer aircraft developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI); Baku has shown great interest in this aircraft.


Azerbaijan may become the second foreign customer of the Turkish Hurkus training aircraft after Niger, which ordered 12 aircraft. Although no statements have been made on this topic in Baku itself, they have spoken out in Turkey. Ismayil Demir, head of the republic’s defense industry, said that the Azerbaijani military are showing "great interest" in this aircraft. Another plus in favor of this version is the tests of two Hurkus aircraft in Azerbaijan at the beginning of December this year in the presence of the country's air force commander.

While there is no other information, it is not even known what kind of aircraft model we are talking about. Perhaps it will be the training Hurkus-B or the Hurkus-C turboprop attack aircraft developed on its basis.

If Hurkus-C is chosen, the Azerbaijani Air Force will receive a two-seater turboprop attack aircraft with six external suspension points, on which it can carry up to 1,5 tons of weapons. The armament includes conventional bombs, unguided rockets, suspended containers with 12.7-mm machine guns and 20-mm cannons, guided aviation GBU-12 bombs and the new Turkish guided bombs Tubitak SAGE KGK 82 and HGK 3, 70-mm Roketsan Cirit missiles and anti-tank guided missiles Roketsan UMTAS.

Earlier, Azerbaijan showed interest in another Turkish project - the Hürjet single-engine combat training aircraft, which is a further development of the Hurkus series. It is planned that the new aircraft with a length of 13,4 m and a wingspan of 11 m, will be able to develop a maximum speed of 1,2 M, climb to an altitude of almost 14 km and carry up to 3000 kg of payload. The first flight of the aircraft is scheduled for 2022.

    The speed is not great. Cruising 450 km / h. Maximum 560. The flight altitude is high, about 10 km. The combat load is comparable to the latest modifications of the Ju-87. I suspect that MANPADS will shoot down such "birds" easily. It costs them to drop to attack. IMHO, this is a cheap alternative to a combat helicopter.

      Why descend to attack? The weapons operator looks at the optical station, selects targets, strikes with guided bombs outside the reach of MANPADS.

      About easy, same question. Nevertheless, the dispersion is greater and the temperature itself is lower. At close range, there will be no problems, but at the outskirts, to capture it will be a problem for sure.

        Modern MANPADS beat flyers on a collision course. Does he radiate a lot of heat on a head-on course? Or a helicopter with an exhaust nozzle? I don't think there will be problems. Just let it go down.

        And they, these same propeller-driven attack aircraft, are they really needed? With modern guidance systems, at such low ground speeds, it will be difficult to dodge small caliber cannon fire or even heavy machine gun fire. Even the ancient "Shilka" can easily cope with such a goal.

          In Syria, we bombed the Barmaleevs even from the Tu-22, which costs an hour of flight dozens, if not hundreds of times more.
          Moreover, with modern sensors, the attack aircraft does not need to descend to the ground, it can work comfortably from heights of several kilometers.
          As far as I remember, the American Bronco cost the budget $ 1.000 per flight hour, and the F15 already cost about $ 20.000.

                  this pepelats will be one-time against any opponent.

                  Yours is not true. SuperTucano has already flown tens of thousands of combat missions, both against the Taliban and against the rebels in Colombia, Chile. And against the drug mafia. Downed can be counted on one hand.

        I watched this video several times. Only later did I realize that the fleeing tanks were also Armenian. They disgraced themselves to the whole world. But they see the reason in Russian weapons. At the same time, 80% of Azerbaijan's weapons are Russian. With such allies and enemies are not needed.

    This is a trainer aircraft. I do not think that it will be used in solving combat missions. Is that "bayraktars" to search and shoot down. In our DOSAAF flying clubs, similar devices are needed, at least based on the Yak-152.
