Is there any more information on this Turkish fighter?

I mean anyone with a paint program can make concept drawings of a aircraft.

I have reservations about that illustration - it tries very hard to look stealthy, but is not very convincing when you look closely. I'm not condeming it outright, as that kind of bigotry happens too much around here, but the drawing doesn't look very credible to me. Does look cool though.

The only place "XTFS" (eXperimental-Trainer/Strike-Fighter?) appears on google is that picture uploaded on Defence-talk.

As far as I was aware, Turkey is looking towards the JFS and possibly the Eurofighter (consistant rumor) and also rumored to be interested in the MAKO if that ever flies.

I think that this Turkish fighter is fake - a lot of basic concept errors in one place. For example see vertical tail, fuselage under engine nozzle, etc.

Second picture is one of hundreds Iranian Shaqueh 80 artists impressions. The real plane looks generaly as F-5 with twin tail.

Wow, some one in turkey scans in a picture of an early JSF prototype and paints a flag on it!


Joking aside, it would be very interesting to see just how the are going to be able to even finance this project, let alone have a whole squadron of them. Turkeys on its knees finance wise, a third of its population is spread through Germany, France and the UK, and the rest are to poor to even be able to afford the basic amenities. After fighting a bitter internal war for nearly 20 years, i just cannot see this even getting off the paper stage.

Good luck to them though, looks cool

Turkey is very interested in buying the Eurofighter, according to this article, they need 70 to 100 new fighters.

emile,
Where do you get your ideas, son? I ain't done never heard no idea as dumb as yourin. I been Turkey huntin son, and they might put up a good fight in a pinch, they ain't no "advanced fighters". Hell, they run iffin they sees you first and their eyesight is more better'n ours by a long shot. In fact, a long shot is bout all you gonna get iffin you goes Turkey huntin. I done done it lots o times.
Now Turkeys is advanced when it comes to eye sight and they is pretty good at tellin some week-end hunter with his new Turkey call soundin more like a pregnant bug than a Turkey. They ain't about to rise to that bait.
But your idea that they is an advanced fightin maching...well its jest plain dumb.
I did like that drawin of that plane you got. Do them folks got any more thjan a drwin?

Poultry issues aside, i do think this fighter is bunk... similar to the faked Iranian 'Stealth fighter' pics I saw on ATS yonks ago...

IF they have the money, they have enough good grace within NATO spheres to buy newer versions of existing F15/16s or (as suggested in this thread) Eurofighters...

Bird Flu will make Skep eat his words!!

Course that'll be all that's left to eat when all his turkeys will be long gone..

One of em's got a BIG syringe on a tank instead of the turret!

Sorry for digression but just couldn't resist!!

It has a Twin tail that is slanted so that is not that odd for a stealth aircraft.

it actually reminds me of the German MAKO.

It would be a good fit for thier AF and wont hurt the EU negotiations (at least with the EF partner nations)

I agree with a poster above regarding the illustration, it trying hard to "look" stealth. From the sawtooth rudder panel etc.
