Hurkus hyeu for use in pilot training

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAŞ) participated in the Anatolian Phoenix-2021 international exercise held in Konya. The new version of HÜRKUŞ, which is one of the original products of Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), held an air show, the HÜRKUŞ Air Ground Integration Aircraft (HYEU). HÜRKUŞ HYEU, which attracted attention by making its debut by holding an air show for the first time, will be used in pilot training.

Attracting attention as part of the exercise, HÜRKUŞ HYEU should be used in the training activities of the Air Force Command. Forward Air Controller, Forward Combat Controller and Joint Fire Support Team training will be conducted 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 HÜRKUŞ’s existing advanced features, HÜRKUŞ HYEU will gradually integrate an electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) camera, laser-guided and unguided training ammunition, as well as an autopilot.

Regarding HÜRKUŞ HYEU, which attracted attention during the International Anatolian Phoenix-2021 held in Konya, TUSAŞ General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil said, “HÜRKUŞ HYEU will be used at “training” purposes, particularly in the 135th Fleet, in this important exercise, which took place with the participation of the commands of various countries. To explain a bit more, our goal with HÜRKUŞ HYEU is to train air and ground elements. We want to make meaningful contributions to our Air Force Command with HÜRKUŞ HYEU’s advanced systems and features.
