We have seen number 218 at Teknofest so that is 18 TB2 produced in 2 months. Yearly production rate is thus 108 TB2!!The 200th Bayraktar TB2 was produced
Baykar Defense produced the 200th Bayraktar TB2. Engineers signed a memorial painting to commemorate the production of the 200th Bayraktar TB2 at Baykar Defense's production facility in Istanbul. Bayraktar TB2 made its first flight on 29 April 2014. Bayraktar TB2, which successfully completed 200,000 flight hours on June 10, 2020, broke a new record in the history of Turkish aviation. Poland, Ukraine, Qatar, Libya and Azerbaijan; Bayraktar is known as the countries that bought TB2. Apart from these, about 10 more countries are closely interested in Bayraktar TB2.
Defence journalist Ibrahim Sunnetci has some new info about the Gokhan ramjet BVR missile:
"The F-16 version of our National METEOR Missile GÖKHAN is also coming. According to the information I have learned, following the acquisition of METEOR by the Greek Air Force, the work has accelerated for a version of the HvKK(TUR-AF) GÖKHAN Missile that can be used in F-16s.
Accordingly, the F-16 version of GÖKHAN will enter service a little earlier than the version developed for the MMU/TF-X. TÜBİTAK SAGE is still working on the RamJet engine.
GÖKHAN, which I think will have bidirectional data link capability, is expected to be used primarily in F-16 Block 30 Aircrafts that have seen ÖZGÜR modernisation and gained AESA radar capability. ASELSAN, TUSAŞ and TÜBİTAK SAGE engineers are expected to cooperate in the integration process of AESA radar and GÖKHAN."
Are there plans to integrate BVR missiles with existing AN/APG radar?
