    Taxi tests today. It sure looks like the little brother of the Korean KFX with a slightly different shaped nose.

    And who makes all the parts?

    My bet is it is indeed mostly Korean, Chinese and possibly European.

    It is just its first flight, so there wont be a serial version till after 2030, but they seem to be ahead of the Europeans with their 5th gen fighter.

    The main issue with this, as with other projects, is the Turks have no engine of their own.
    They are basically using the GE F110 engine as used in the F-16 and F-15. But it remains to be seen if the US will grant them a license to make it, or will sell them the engines.
