National Combat Aircraft (TF-X/MMU) on Display at the Singapore Airshow

Date: Issue 113 - April 2022

The mock-up of Turkey’s landmark national fighter was exhibited at the Singapore Airshow, as the country seeks to expand its defence engagement in the region. It marks the first time that the jet has been showcased in the Asian market, its developer, Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), said in a statement.

The biennial event has bookended the pandemic, with the 2020 edition disrupted by the virus emerging from China and the latest show coming as the industry attempts to plot a way out of what became its biggest and most costly crisis.
