Turkey is capable enough to produce its own aircraft carrier

Turkey's defense industry undersecretary said on Saturday that Turkey was capable enough to produce its own aircraft carrier thanks to its recent achievements in maritime industry.

Turkey's defense industry undersecretary said on Saturday that Turkey was capable enough to produce its own aircraft carrier thanks to its recent achievements in maritime industry.

Murad Bayar said a country had to own at least two new destroyers, one submarine, one ASW, one ASuW, one conventional helicopter, four missile boats, 40 war jets that can land and take off from the aircraft carrier, and fuel tanker in order to own such a giant carrier.

" Also, the carrier should employ 1,000 to 5,000 staff according to its dimensions, " Bayar told AA correspondent.

Bayar said the undersecretariat was providing 52.1 percent of Turkish Armed Forces' (TSK) needs by local possibilities.

" Our turnover has reached 2.7 billion USD, exports to 853 million USD, and annual R&D expenditures to 600 million USD, " Bayar said.

Bayar said today, there was a Turkish company among the to 100 defense industry companies in the world.

The undersecretary said Turkey's Gokturk 2 satellite would probably be launched in the second half of 2012.

Bayar said the F-35 project schedule had been extended for two years, and technical and political initiatives were under way.

The undersecretary also said the first aircraft within the framework of A400M project was planned to be delivered in September 2013.

Turkey to make light helicopters, possibly with Sikorsky

Tuesday, May 10, 2011


ISTANBUL – Hurriyet Daily News

Turkey soon will begin to design and develop a military and civilian light utility helicopter, probably together with a foreign partner, and possibly the U.S. Sikorsky Aircraft, defense procurement chief Murad Bayar said late Monday.

Bayar's remarks to Hurriyet Daily News & Economic Review came during a boat tour of the Bosphorus on the sidelines of the 2011 International Defense Industry Fair, or IDEF, held in Istanbul between May 10 and 13.

Turkish President Abdullah Gül opened the fair Tuesday, saying that Turkey has been attaching great importance to defense industry in recent years.

“ The country particularly has experienced great improvement in terms of designing the productions and using local sources in defense industry, ” Gül said.

Earlier Bayar said on the light utility helicopter issue that Sikorsky, a leading manufacturer of various helicopters, did not have a helicopter weighing between 4,500 and 5,500 kilograms, the type of platform Turkey wants to develop.

" Turkey and Sikorsky Aircraft together can work on this matter. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, we are ready to work with other companies, " Bayar said.

Another top Turkish defense official said Turkey wanted a foreign partner that can bring marketing advantages to the light utility helicopter program.

" It's not that we can't make that helicopter, we can make it. But we would prefer to work with a company that has large marketing capabilities also in third markets, " Muharrem Dortkasli, general manager of Turkish Aerospace Industries, or TAI, Turkey's main aerospace company.

Export eyed for new copters

Both Bayar and Dortkasli said the new product should appeal to customers from Turkey and several other countries.

Bayar said Turkey would seriously begin to work on this new program later this year. "This is a high-priority program for us, " he said.

Sikorsky Aircraft in late April won a $3.5 billion contract against the Italian AgustaWestland to jointly manufacture the T-70 large utility helicopter weighing more than 10,000 kilograms, a Turkish version of its S-70i International Black Hawk.

Sikorsky and its Turkish partners led by TAI will produce in the first batch a total of 109 helicopters, mostly for military and security forces. With follow-on orders, the number of utility helicopters to be jointly produced may exceed 600, defense officials have said.

Turkish and Sikorsky officials have already discussed the light utility helicopter, and those talks are expected to intensify in future month.

A total of 25 defense ministers and four chiefs of the general staff attended IDEF's opening. More than 500 local and international companies are taking part in the fair.

Turkey presently spends slightly over $4 billion for defense procurement a year, but in upcoming years this figure will rise in line with several major programs taking effect

The bi-annual IDEF fairs have been held in Turkey since the 1990s. Organized in odd years, the fair had been held in Ankara. But the venue changed in 2009, and the fair was taken to Istanbul.

Turkey launches jet trainer project, fighter development studies

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) has received a development contract for a project to create an indigenous jet training and combat aircraft.

According to the agreement between the company and Turkey's Undersecretariat for Defence Industries, Savunma Sanayii Müsteşarlığı (SSM), the two-year project will focus on showing the needs and capacity of the nation's industry.

The SSM decided late last year that a Turkish jet trainer should be designed to replace the Turkish air force's Northrop T-38s during the 2020s.

TAI is currently modernising the in-service fleet with advanced avionics and a glass cockpit.

Under the new project, TAI will also perform conceptual design work on a new combat aircraft to replace the air force's modernised Northrop F-5s and McDonnell Douglas F-4Es.

TAI's work will concentrate on determining the operational requirements for new equipment, plus the concept definition of aircraft and subsystems.

It will also assess national capacity building and research facility needs, and investigate international co-operation models.

At the end of the two-year effort, the results of the technical and administrative studies will be evaluated by the SSM's executive committee, which will make a decision on the next phase of the project.

TFX (Turkish Stealth Multirole Fighter Aircraft)

TFX is a Turkish stealth Multirole fighter aircraft that is planned to be finished by 2020.

Conceptual design phase

On 15 December 2010, Turkey's Defence Industry Executive Committee (SSIK) decided to design, develop, and manufacture an indigenous air-to-air combat fighter. US$20 million was allocated for 2-year conceptual design phase that will be performed by TUSAŞ.

On 23 August 2011, the Undersecretariat for Defense Industry (SSM) and the Turkish defense company Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) signed an agreement to official begin development.

TAI and Tusaş Engine Industries (TEI) will lead the design and development processes of the fighter jet. TEI will focus more on the production of the airplane's engines to be completed by 2015, while TAI will develop other components. The studies will reveal how much the fighter jet would cost, which mechanical and electronic systems would be employed and included a wider perspective of the opportunities and challenges in military aviation.

Signiture ceremony day for commencing the conceptual design phase of Turkish advanced trainer and Turkish stealth aircraft.

adakah malaysia berminat?

Mungkin untuk pembangunan kenderaan armor bagi TD sahaja ... sebab kita dah gunapakai ADNAN IFV (aka nama Turki adalah ACV 300 keluaran FNSS).

Selain tu, kita dah ada J/V dengan FNSS untuk develop AV-8 (aka nama Turki Pars 8x8) sebagai platform armor APC menggantikan Condor & Sibmas.

Surface Force : Turki Navy Building More Milgem Corvette

December 13, 2012 : With only one of its twelve new Heybeliada class anti-submarine corvettes in service, Turkey is now planning to produce another new class of ships in the form of four larger multi-purpose ships (frigates). These will also be locally designed and built. The Turkish navy is already the most powerful force in the eastern Mediterranean, with 17 frigates, seven corvettes, 14 submarines, and 27 missile armed patrol boats, plus 75 aircraft. Many of these ships are approaching retirement and the Turks want to replace most of them with locally built vessels. While the locally made corvettes cost less than $300 million each, the frigates would cost over a billion dollars each and weigh more than twice as much.

These 2,300 ton Heybeliada class corvettes are the first modern warships designed and built in Turkey, using largely Turkish made components. The Heybeliadas are 99.6 meters (308 feet) long and have a crew of 93. Weapons include a 76mm gun, two remotely controlled 12.7mm machine-guns, eight Harpoon anti-ship missiles, 21 RAM missiles for use against aircraft and anti-ship missiles, six torpedo tubes, and a helicopter. Electronics include radar, sonar, and electronics warfare gear. Top speed is 52 kilometers an hour and endurance is about 21 days. The entire class won't be completed until 2028, and four of the later ones will be slightly larger and armed with more anti-aircraft weapons. The first eight will spend most of their time performing coast guard duties.

The four new frigates will range farther into the Mediterranean and Black Seas. For centuries, until the appearance of metal ships, Turkey was a major builder of warships. The Turks are very much aware of that tradition and are keen to regain some of that past stature in the warship construction industry.

TAI and Saab to design Turkey’s indigenous fighter

Bets open on Turkey’s first fighter aircraft

Burak Bekdil ANKARA - Hürriyet Daily News

Turkish arms manufacturer TAI has signed a technical assistance deal with Swedish Saab to build a fighter jet, but analysts remain skeptical about the feasibility of an indigenous Turkish fighter

A JAS - 39 Gripen fighter, manufactured by Swedish aerospace and defense company Saab, is seen. Turkish Aerospace (TAI) has signed a preliminary deal with Saab to work on developing a Turkish fighter.
It is no secret that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has been passionate about two “ made in Turkey ” vehicles : a car and a fighter aircraft. Interestingly, Turkish officials have found one company that builds both and could help Turkey design and develop indigenous models. Talks with Sweden’s Saab for a Turkish fighter jet are inching forward but industry sources and analysts remain skeptical.

Turkish officials have been in talks with Saab (and with Korean Aerospace Industries) to find the best modality for this ambitious project since 2010 and 2011. In August 2011, the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries (SSM), signed a deal with Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) to carry out the conceptual design work for fighter and jet trainer aircraft Turkey hopes to build.

In recent months a Turkish delegation, including SSM officials, visited Saab headquarters and production facilities in Sweden. And more recently, TAI and Saab penned a preliminary agreement for technical assistance which will pave the way for a subsequent support deal. As part of the planned agreement, TAI is expected to acquire Saab’s aircraft design tools.

Designing the first ever Turkish fighter, according to defense analysts, is a necessary but not critical step. “What is crucial here is whether this project would enable Turkey to earn capabilities to successfully integrate avionics, electronics and weapon systems into the chosen platform,” a London-based analyst said.

Saab is the maker of the JAS 39 Gripen, a lightweight single-engine multi-role fighter. It was designed to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force (Flygvapnet). Saab has cooperated with other aerospace companies in marketing the aircraft internationally, and has achieved moderate success in Central Europe, South Africa and Southeast Asia. More than 240 Gripens have been delivered or ordered.

In 2010, Sweden awarded Saab a four-year contract to improve the Gripen’s equipment, integrate new weapons, and lower its operating costs. In August, Sweden announced it planned to buy 40 to 60 Gripen NG. The Swedish order followed Switzerland’s decision to buy 22 of the E/F variants.

US dependency on fighters

For its fighter program, dubbed the TF-X, Turkey hopes to copy the modality it had devised to co-produce the T-129 attack helicopters with the Italian-British AgustaWestland. “ We think this model has worked successfully and could be a template for our fighter program, ” said one aviation official. But defense sources here said the program was exposed to the risk of a prolonged conceptual design and this would make the whole project “ not very meaningful. ”

“ Turkey hopes to fly its national fighter by 2023. This is not a realistic target, ” said one source. “ If the conceptual design work takes about seven to eight years from now on, the technology on which the design will be based would be too old at the production stage. You may need a time machine to efficiently use the aircraft. ”

Major weapons makers are also cautious and skeptical. “ We wanted to help Turkey out with its ambitions to design and develop its own fighter jet. But we had to step back when we understood that the technical requirements for the aircraft are far from being realistic, ” said a top official from a Western aircraft maker.

Another Western defense executive commented: “ We have been working with the Turks for decades. And we fear Turkey may end up keeping an arsenal of second-class weapons systems built at home at exorbitant prices. ”

Turkey, whose present fighter fleet is made up of U.S.-made aircraft, also plans to buy the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, a next-generation, multinational program also led by the United States. But Turkish officials say they want to develop another future jet fighter with a country other than the United States to reduce Turkey’s overdependence on Washington.

Turks Order Turkish Made UAVs

March 26, 2013 : Turkey recently completed acceptance tests (130 sorties) for its new Anka UAV, and production is to begin on the first order of 30 aircraft (ten systems) for the Turkish Air Force. Each Anka system consists of three UAVs plus ground control equipment and all necessary maintenance and ground operations gear.

Looking very similar to the American Predator, the Anka is a 1.6 ton aircraft propelled by a rear facing propeller. Payload is 200 kg (440 pounds) and endurance is 24 hours, and Anka can operate up to 200 kilometers from its controller. Max altitude is 7,900 meters (26,000 feet). A UAV like this would sell for over $2 million each. The Turkish military is to receive its first Anka by the end of the year. Four months ago Turkey found its first export customer for Anka, with Egypt ordering ten. First deliveries will be in two years. Turkey is already working on a larger (four ton) Anka that can carry missiles or a lot more reconnaissance equipment.

Another Turkish firm made its first export sale (to Qatar) of its Bayraktar Tactical UAV a year ago. This is a 500 kg (1,100 pound) aircraft with a 40 kg (88 pound) payload and an endurance of 14 hours. It enters service in Turkey this year. The price for ten Bayraktars Tactical UAVs sold to Qatar was reported to be $25 million.

There is also a Bayraktar Mini UAV which is a 4.6 kg (9.9 pound) aircraft that is battery powered and hand launched. Endurance is 60 minutes and the Bayraktar can operate up to 15 kilometers from the operator. The Turkish Army has been using the Bayraktar Mini for the last six years.

Turkey's economy has been booming during the last decade, as a new government made good on its pledge to crack down on the corruption that had long crippled the economy. As the economy grew the government sought to make Turkey more self-sufficient in military equipment, and UAVs are considered part of this program.
