Looking at the first picture in this thread, why do I keep thinking RAH-66 Comanche...?

Yes, but all such projects seem invariably to fall under that generic 'Turkish Indigenous Helicopter' label.

Indeed those are very informative. Very much shows Agusta/Westland influence. I think these are the "real deal".

TAİ produces the fuselage of the AW139 so there are many similarities

Given the close ties with AW, I would have been surprised to see tremendous differences.

SSM has decided to startup the continuation of the shelved "Aricopter" project. Aricopter project was started in 2003 by ROTAM of the Istanbul technical university and funded by DPT (state planning institute). By 2009 the design and prototyping was started and by 2011 the prototype was ready and to start her flight test but due to budget funding reasons the project got shelved. SSM decided now to continue the shelved Aricopter project, TAI is now tasked to takeover the ground and flight tests after a 4 years break...

Very much doubt it as the picture is of the RAH-66 Comanche dynamic components in a simplified fuselage.

This is what happens when you leave an A-169 and a Dauphine alone in a closed hanger. B)
It is a nice looking helicopter, sure hope they can make it work. Turks can build some aircraft.
