The T-925 is being developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) to fulfill a heavy-lift rotorcraft role covering military, civilian, and industry sectors. As such, versatility is being integrated from the start, leaning on the country's deep experience collected from years of operation with Russian Mil Mi-17 ("Hip") transport-gunships, American Sikorsky S-70 "Black Hawk", and French Airbus "Cougar" types. The T-929 remains in the early development stage as was debuted in mock-up form during the Paris Air Show of 2023 - this places official operational service entry no sooner than 2027.

The displayed form at the show features a largely conventional design arrangement complete with clean, aerodynamically-refined lines. The main rotor sits atop the passenger section of the helo and over the twin-engine configuration which also powers a tail rotor seated to portside. The cockpit has a well-sloped nose giving the pilots (seated side-by-side) excellent vision over the frame. Entry exit for the crew is through hinged, automobile-style doors. The passenger section has its own rectangular sliding door. Sponsons are noted at both sides of the fuselage. Running gear is a traditional tricycle arrangement with each leg given double-ted bogie elements.

The T-929 no doubt marks yet another step in the country's march towards complete independence from the East or West concerning its local military and industry needs. Turkiye currently manufactures, under license, the Italian AgustaWestland A129 "Mangusta" (as the T129 "ATAK") attack helicopter and American Sikorsky S-70 while development continues on the T929 "ATAK II" attack helo, the T625 Gokbey medium-lift commercial platform.

At present, the T925 is known to have a running length of 65.6 feet with a weight of 25,353lb.
