Turkey launches F-16 life-extension program amid lack of replacement aircraft

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey’s procurement and defense authorities have launched a program designed to increase the structural life of the country’s existing fleet of F-16 Block 30 jets from 8,000 flight hours to 12,000, the country’s top procurement official announced.

Ismail Demir, who leads the Presidency of Defence Industries, wrote in a Feb. 2 tweet that the comprehensive upgrade program would involve revisions, renewals, replacements and body reinforcement. “The upgrades will cover 1,200 to 1,500 parts per aircraft,” Demir said.

Caglar Kurc, a Turkish defense analyst, said the upgrade program indicates Turkey’s intention to keep the F-16s as its main aerial firepower until the country completes work on its planned indigenous fighter jet.

“In addition to the F-16s, [armed and unarmed] drones could be used to support, particularly, anti-terror missions,” Kurc said.

Turkey has been seeking options for a new-generation fighter after it was suspended from the American-led, multinational Joint Strike Fighter program that builds the F-35 Lightning II.

Turkish Aerospace Industries will perform the structural upgrades for the F-16s as part of an ongoing upgrade program. TAI is currently building 30 new F-16 Block 50+ aircraft for the Turkish Air Force and is running an upgrade program covering more than 160 F-16 Block 30/40/50 aircraft.

Turkey’s indigenous fighter program, dubbed TF-X (or MMU in its Turkish acronym), has been crawling over the past years due to technological failures and issues with know-how transfers. Turkish engineers must first select an engine for the planned aircraft before finalizing the design phase.

TAI has been in talks with British engine-maker Rolls-Royce for engine know-how and co-production, but a final contract has yet to emerge.

(...)
Mega e bem conseguido. Veja-se como os turcos compram o F-16V e modernizam os restantes (desconheço se na totalidade).

Era bom conseguirmos algo do género evitando o gasto maciço em F-35 que poderá retirar dinheiro para outras aquisições que urge conseguirmos.

Citação de: Ahmet Akyol
Our country is now in a new league in aviation 🇹🇷
May the first flight of our National Combat Aircraft #KAAN which met with Gök Vatan, be beneficial to our nation.

With the capabilities to be gained in technologies such as very low visibility, high radar capabilities and increased situational awareness that a 5th generation fighter jet should have in the project, Turkey will; It will have the infrastructure and technology that only a few countries in the world have.

While ASELSAN took part in all of these, it also proved its success with the systems used in the first flight.

We will continue to develop our cutting-edge avionics systems to enhance the strength of our steel wings.

I congratulate all our engineers who contributed to the project, especially the TAI team.

May it be good for our nation. 🇹🇷

Feito notável. Agora resta saber o que vão fazer com os motores. Vão trocá-los pelo Eurojet EJ200 ou vão seguir o caminho longo, tortuoso e penoso de projetar, desenvolver e industrializar um motor "100%" turco?
