The TF-X (Turkish Fighter - Experimental) is a proposed all-season air superiority twin-engine fighter developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) in collaboration with BAE Systems. The aircraft is expected to replace the Turkish Air Force's F-16 Fighting Falcons and to be exported to foreign air forces. The Turkish National Defense Ministry has stated that TF-X will make its first flight by 2023, but this was later delayed to 2025.

Im curious
1. Where will they get the Supercruising engine from?
Since they pissed, off the Europeans, Americans, and are in a proxy war with Russia?

2. The aircraft has some of the worst rear visibility Ive seen in awhile. Do they plan on copying DAS?

3. Why didn't they just play it cool and buy the F-35? This plane is either going to end in disaster or a money pit.

4. Who is the customer? Not even the U.S. is mass producing 200 or more 5th generation fighters with out partners. And with low economies of scale whos going to oay extra for a fighter worse than the F-35?
