  1. The T-129 is not a customized version of the Agusta A129 Mangusta. The T-129 has an indigenous Turkish Aerospace Industries designed and produced mission computer, avionics, weapons systems, self-protection suites and helmet-mounting cuing system. It also has a TUSAS Engine Industries Inc (TEI) licence produced LHTEC CTS800-4N engine. The T-129 also incorporates a Turkish State Research Organization (TÜBİTAK), Meteksan Savunma Sanayii AŞ and Bilkent University designed and produced advanced millimetre wave radar (MILDAR)similar to the one used on the Longbow Apache. The only commonality between the T129 and A129 Mangusta is some segments of the fuselage.
