Turkey announced the presentation of a promising combat training aircraft of its own design

Turkey is preparing a presentation of a new promising combat training aircraft of its own design Hürjet. As stated in the developer company, the presentation of the aircraft will take place in the near future.


Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) intends to present to the general public the Hürjet combat trainer aircraft, which is being developed both for the Turkish Air Force and for export deliveries, within the next two months. According to the head of TAI Temel Kotil, the company has big plans for this aircraft.

According to Kotil, at the first stage, the company will build four prototype aircraft, which will take part in the tests. The aircraft will make its first flight in 2023, and from 2024 it should go into mass production. At the first stage, it is planned to produce only seven aircraft per year, but after 2025 the plans are grandiose, the company plans to produce 2 aircraft per month. Although there is no actual aircraft yet, the company is already offering it to potential customers. For example, the UBS Hürjet was proposed to Malaysia as a light attack aircraft. In the Turkish Air Force, he must replace the training T-38s, and the combat training F-5s, the need for at least 70 aircraft has already been announced.

Work on a new combat training aircraft capable of performing the tasks of a light attack aircraft began in 2017, in April 2018 the development of the Hürjet concept design was completed, in 2019 the creation of project documentation was completed. The single-engine jet is actually a further development of the Hurkus turboprop UBS series.

Declared characteristics: length - 13,4 meters, wingspan - 11 meters. Payload - 3000 kg, speed - Mach 1,2 (1470 km / h). Flight altitude - 14 km. Modern weapons systems will allow the use of both guided and conventional weapons.

    Well ... the Turks will already make their first plane. Something tells me that everything will go according to schedule.
    and for now we will continue to carry mock-ups

      The first aircraft in Russia was tested by Mr. Mozhaisky in 1885, well, or a little earlier. History does not exactly remember this.

            I do not argue. however, they are moving, progressing, and not only in the production of weapons.
            Factories, combines, educational institutions, dams, energy are being tightened.
            Estimate how much they would do if they had oil and gas

              Not much more. They wouldn't have the money to buy anything and everything. And in the presence of sanctions and restrictions, one horseradish of new products will not be sold. And they themselves do not pull in the air in terms of an engineering school.

      On the topic of the Turkish study desk, they managed to find a fan. And what is it, 2019 pieces were produced for 130.

        You should not compare with the Yak-130 - because the Yak is a twin-engine subsonic.
        The Turks are much closer to the Korean T-50

          The Turks are not closer to anything yet. Let them make at least some kind of plane. Well, if they are not denied access to the engines again, for example.

    Turkey announced the presentation of a promising combat training aircraft of its own design

    We flew into space 60 years ago, and today they are trying to create an airplane. Those. from scratch they will immediately jump into the 5th generation of combat aircraft.
    Turkey is behind the leading countries in technology FOREVER!
    It would be better if they brought out new varieties of tomatoes.

        drinks The question is not in flight.
        The question is technology, and technology is a consequence of scientific and technological progress!
        Jumping from first grade to academy is impossible.
        Today, the aircraft industry is beyond even Germany, as much was lost in the post-war years.
        ---
        Today, only China, with the help of titanic efforts, is trying to create this industry.

        So it is better for Turkey to deal with new varieties of tomatoes, and, well, with seaside resorts.

          experience is gained in the production process. you don't need to start with the invention of the wheel.. you can join the race from any stage... the main thing is to do it on a regular basis and with the right approach, i.e. in addition to specialized industry, develop other areas and education. It's not smart to tell someone to use tomatoes and who to deal with cucumbers. Turkey is quite actively developing its industry. Military including. No snobbery here

            And what about the experience?
            You can join the race from any stage...
            Come on. So the best is from the last stage, closest to the finish line, and more strength.
            the main thing is to do it on an ongoing basis and with the right approach

            What you suggest is called the correct approach?

    "they will make their first plane" in fact, the Turks and Chinese are well-known copyists.
    They can combine for example: F-14 engine and cockpit, Mirage wings. And declare: social development

    The Turkish military-industrial sector is still critically dependent on imports of components, assemblies and equipment, on foreign know-how and technologies. Many complex systems are created with direct participation and in partnership with foreign developers and depend on foreign competencies either completely or in the most important nodes.

    Most clearly, this systemic shortcoming of the Turkish military-industrial complex affects the engine building industry, demonstrating the general underdevelopment of classical mechanical engineering in Turkey.

    In particular, it is precisely because of the lack of an engine that the start of mass production of the Turkish Altay tank (developed with the participation of the South Korean company Hyundai Rotem) is seriously hampered. Four prototypes of the Altay tank are equipped with German MTU MT 883 Ka 501 diesel engines.

    Turkish aviation programs have similar problems.

    Turkish drones, which have received noisy publicity, are also equipped with foreign-made engines. The TAI ANKA unit has a Thielert Centurion 2.0 aircraft diesel engine with a capacity of 155 hp. German company Thielert (now controlled by Chinese owners). And the notorious Bayraktar TB2 is powered by the Austrian Rotax 912 engine with 100 hp.
    In fact, despite serious efforts and significant funding, not a single aircraft engine created in Turkey (including the simplest piston PD-170) has been brought to mass production. It is obvious that the creation of engines even for drones is a very non-trivial design and industrial task.

        The world is on the verge of transition to the 6th technological order
        4 technological mode - internal combustion engine, jet and turbojet engines; rockets; nuclear fuel; computer; laser; conveyor production, radio communication.
        The core of the structure is the automotive industry, aircraft construction, and petrochemistry. United energy systems. Nuclear power. Electronic industry. Space satellites.
        5 technostructure - based on achievements in the field of microelectronics, computer science, biotechnology, genetic engineering, new types of energy, materials, space exploration, satellite communications, etc.
        6 technostructure - nano-, bio-, info- and cognitive technologies (the so-called NBICS-convergence, NBIC).
        nanotechnologies, cellular technologies, designing materials and organisms with predetermined properties, etc.
