Turkish Aerospace’s General Manager and CEO, Temel Kotil, publicised that the company would develop a six-ton attack or armed helicopter – designated T629 – that will fill the gap between the five-ton T129 ATAK and the forthcoming 10-ton ATAK II Heavy Attack Helicopter.

In an interview with GBP Aerospace and Defence magazine, Kotil stated, “The designs have been finalised, and we plan to carry out the first flight of this new helicopter in about a year.”

Professor Ismail Demir, the President of Defence Industries (SSB) stated that Turkish Aerospace would develop a six-ton attack helicopter using the same transmission, gearbox, and rotors of the T625 back in October 2017.
