Gökhan Project, Turkey’s ramjet-powered air-to-air missile project, has recently passed a critical stage. The engine was tested during the visit of Professor İsmail Demir, President of the Defence Industry (SSB), to TÜBİTAK SAGE.


Demir’s visit was announced on social media, but no information about the engine test was shared. SAGE made later a statement from the corporate account and said, “we passed a critical stage with the successful ramjet engine ignition test performed on our TAYFUN Aero trust Infrastructure.”. 

SAGE currently prepares Bozdağan and Gökdoğan air to air missiles in Göktüğ Project. It also started Gökhan air to air missile with ramjet engine project.
