Malaysia's Future Jet Fighter?

Turkey has officially offered Malaysia the opportunity to collaborate in the development and production of both a next-generation fighter and an advanced jet trainer/light attack aircraft following Ankara’s removal from the US-led F-35 Joint Strike Fighter programme, as reported by

The proposals are related to state-owned Turkish Aerospace’s indigenous fighter and jet trainer programmes, the TF-X and Hürjet respectively, according to Malaysian government officials.

The TF-X could address the Royal Malaysian Air Force’s (RMAF’s) future requirement for replacement fighters: an effort that will begin in 2030, with a procurement decision expected to be made in 2035. The selected fighter is expected to gradually replace the service’s current fleets of Sukhoi Su-30MKM and Boeing F/A-18D Hornet aircraft.
