Taïwan : un nouveau jet d’entrainement




D’inspiration F-16 et dérivé du AIDC F-CK-1 Ching-Kuo (Taiwan)

Extrait Wikipedia:

The design is based on the AIDC F-CK-1 Ching-Kuo and shares the same engines, but will have 80% new components including a composite body. Compared to the F-CK-1 it will have advance avionics, increased fuel capacity, and be a little larger.[10] The aerofoil is slightly revised, with the wings being thicker than on the F-CK-1[11] in order to increase stability at low speed and low altitude as well as to provide increased fuel storage.[12] The ram air scoop of the F-CK-1 has been redesigned in partnership with the Eaton Corporation with two aluminum laser powder bed fusion printed parts replacing 22 original parts.[13] Meggitt will supply the main wheels, carbon brakes and brake control systems as they do on the AT-3 and F-CK-1.[14] Martin-Baker will provide the ejection seat systems.[15] More than 55% of components are made in Taiwan. It has been reported that the aircraft was designed from the beginning to serve dual peacetime training and wartime combat roles.[16]
