Beside these two missiles, TÜBİTAK sage is also working on ramjet powered air to air missile called Gökhan. Several tests have been commenced with ramjet engine of Gökhan. It is expected to complete all tests in 2026 and be ready for serial production

Not in the ground but also all air lunch tests completed. Tests were going on for 2.5 years in the air. Many lunch tests performed in different scenarios.
We will not merge our projects. I think we will give technical support to Pakistan ,since we already completed our missile tests.
We are working on extending range of gökdoğan to amraam c8 ranges.and we are also working on ramjet powered air to air missile.

Sorry !! Latest info for Gökhan missile is that its engine completed more than 100 tests on the ground.
We are not sure whether it started it's tests on the ground and in the air as a complete missile.
I have mistaken as Göktuğ project which is for Bozdoğan and gökdoğan missiles

But Pakistanis are claiming it that you guys have merged you're project. They even say pfx to TFX and say project Azam Pakistani 5th gen aircraft project has been merged with turkey's TFX. Specifically saying all those Intel tweeter handles and some Pakistanis mainstream defence youtubers.. like Pakistan strategic forum..
Amraam C8 has 160km range there are even reports of it being 180km..

I was waiting for this I don't understand How can you start a ramjet engine on ground like how is it possible if it isn't flying how can it even start ?
I find this very shaddy to believe

We want Pakistan to be in our TFX project to increase total number of aircraft built hence aircraft cost decreases further. More over , TUSAŞ has 200 Pakistani engineers in Pakistan. They are given some works to be conpleted. They are not access to Kaan directly. They are given some engineering works ,so they work on them.
Same for maleysia. TUSAŞ has engineering office in Malaysia, they are working on some avionics of hurjet and anka.
TUSAŞ is doing this to sell it's products to these countries and distribute non confidential engineering works to these countries nationals,hence confidential works can be performed by its own national engineers.
Hence,getting rid of non confidential engineering works to give confidential ones to Turks

Additionally, Pakistan is our friend country. We can provide almost all technology to them. But we also keep our secrets.
Like providing necessary algorithms for their projects. But we don't provide Turkish projects algorithms to keep Turkish projects secrecy
