First Piece at TF-X 30 December, 2019

Professor Temel Kotil, the General Manager of Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAS), informed C4Defence about new developments in the Turkish Fighter Programme (TF-X). Kotil stated that TUSAŞ and TUBITAK BILGEM have started to work on the reflection of radar waves from aircraft. Kotil said, “We started cutting the air inlets, we make the first air inlets. We began to work on their electromagnetic reflections with TÜBİTAK BİLGEM. The first air intake is now at TÜBİTAK. We want to see whether the inlet is swallowing or reflecting the radio waves. We start to analyse. We physically touched our hands. So it's not just on paper anymore. ”
