Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAŞ) participated in the International Anatolian Phoenix-2021 exercise held in Konya. The new version of HÜRKUŞ, which is among the original products of Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), organized a flight show, the HÜRKUŞ Air Ground Integration Aircraft (HYEU). HÜRKUŞ HYEU, which attracted attention by making its debut by organizing a flight show for the first time, will be used in the training of pilots.
Drawing attention within the scope of the exercise, HÜRKUŞ HYEU is planned to be used in the training activities of the Air Forces Command. Forward Air Controller, Forward Combat Controller and Joint Fire Support Team trainings will be given with HÜRKUŞ HYEU. HÜRKUŞ HYEU, which is called an advanced variant according to the requirements of the 135th fleet, is expected to provide significant advantages with its low cost of use and advanced avionics systems. In addition to the existing advanced features of HÜRKUŞ, HÜRKUŞ HYEU will gradually integrate Electro-Optic / Infrared (EO/IR) camera, laser-guided and unguided training munitions, as well as autopilot.
Regarding HÜRKUŞ HYEU, which attracted attention in the International Anatolian Phoenix-2021 held in Konya, TUSAŞ General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil said: “HÜRKUŞ HYEU will be used for 'training' purposes, especially in the 135th fleet, in this important exercise, which was held with the participation of the commands of various countries. To explain a little more, our aim with HÜRKUŞ HYEU is to train air and ground elements. We want to make significant contributions to our Air Force Command with the advanced systems and features of HÜRKUŞ HYEU.”
