Historic: Indigenous Trkiye-made 5th gen fighter leaves hangar

In what is a historic day for Trkiye and possibly for global fighter jet history, the Turkish developed and made TF-X National Combat Aircraft (MMU) fifth generation stealth fighter jet left its hangar late Friday, according to an announcement made by the Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB) Chairperson Ismail Demir, according to Daily Sabah. Ambitious goals seen as dreams are being realized one by one, as Trkiye’s fifth generation stealth fighter awoke Friday coming out of its hangar for the first time, and no doubt will soon start to flex its muscles. “In memory of our martyrs! We said that we will take our National Combat Aircraft out of the hangar on March 18. Our plane is on the runway today! Under the leadership of our President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, God willing will witness it soaring in our sky homeland,” Minister Demir said on Twitter, referring to the 108th anniversary of Trkiye’s naval victory on the Gallipoli peninsula. Developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAS), the TF-X MMU has the technologies and features found in fifth-generation warplanes. It will provide the opportunity to strategically attack air-to-air and air-to-ground targets. It has a completely domestic infrastructure for secure data sharing and the use of smart munitions.
