Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAŞ) exhibited the first produced pieces of Turkish National Fighter Aircraft (TF-X) for the first time. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the "National Technologies and New Investments Program" ceremony to open the critical facilities in TUSAŞ. The first pieces were presented to the President Erdoğan.



TUSAŞ has presented the first produced piece from social media recently. This time the company presented three parts; the keel backbone, keel beams and compression wall of TF-X.

One of the first parts produced for the TF-X, the keel backbone, is the main load-bearing part that provides the middle fuselage-wing interface.

It was stated that the backbone beams, which are another part, are the main load-bearing parts that form the front body keel structure. It was noted that the pressure part is the main carrier part that forms the cockpit rear pressure wall.

The TF-X is expected to roll out in 2023, maiden flight in 2026 and inventory as of 2030.
