BAE Systems joins Turkish TF-X program

Sat Jan 28, 2017 6:01 pm

During visit today by Prime Minister Theresa May to Turkey, a 20-year agreement was signed with BAE Systems to team up with TAI (Turkish Aerospace Industries) on the development of the TF-X Turkish fighter program.

Per BAE Systems chief executive, Ian King, the deepening defense cooperation would see key UK aerospace companies likely win contracts to provide engines, weapons, radars and sensors for the TF-X.

Looks like a F-22/F-35 hybrid.

Have they settled on 1 versus 2 engine options?

I believe they have agreed on a 2 engine config
The average EU official - he has the organising ability of the Italians, the flexibility of the Germans and the modesty of the French. And that's topped up by the imagination of the Belgians, the generosity of the Dutch.
