It will be a huge shot in the arm for BAE.Britan has a very long history with aircraft design..Maybe dust off those Tsr2 plans
Rolls-Royce signed a deal on Monday with Turkey’s Kale Group, which is a defense and aerospace firm, to produce aircraft engines in the future. “Kale Group will own 51 per cent and Rolls-Royce 49 per cent of the joint venture, which aims to develop aircraft engines for Turkey, initially targeting the TF-X National Fighter Jet Project,” read a statement from Rolls-Royce. Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May had visited Ankara in January to meet with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss a 100 million pound ($125 million) deal between Britain’s BAE Systems and Turkish Aerospace Industries. The signing of the agreement allowed Turkey and Britain to collaborate on the design phase of the TF-X.
