    Lockeed Martin does not even let Turkey upgrade block40/50s. It is not possible to upgrade them ourselves. They want to sell their own kit. We are only allowed to do that for our block 30s. we have more than 170 block 40/50s that's a lot of $$$ to earn for LM. You do not simply understand f-16s...

    In general, FMS purchases can provide an international partner contract administrative services that may not be available through the private sector and may help lower unit costs by consolidating purchases for FMS customers with those of DoD. Turkey buys through FMS, so whatever US army is...

    TR HÜRJET-Advanced Jet Trainer/ Light attack aircraft

    Hurjet project just like Hürkus is fundementally an R&D project. Aim is to make TAI a technologically capable company that could carry out the TF-X project or the projects that'll come after that. I agree that it is very likely no export success will be achieved but TURAF is going to procure +50...

    I agree. TCG Istanbul is almost ready, that shows we have almost every subsystem ready, midlas and hisar-rf is on the way. We are talking about paying 10b$+ deal for f-16s to US, we are talking about paying 10b$+ to UK for eurofighters but we don't have 5-6b$ for our shipbuilding industry and...

    I'm not the expert on this subject. It is my understanding with limited technical capability there is literally 0 difference between a horizontal, top or in between attack. The trajectory of the missile is in all 3 forms quite close to each other, radar detects it nearly 50 meters away and...

    If you are saying Javelin-like missile might approach at such an angle that it is not tracked by the radar, they could easily place the radars in such configuration if needed. I think it just works fine cause if i remember correctly dutch really evaulated Trophy and decided to procure a lot...

    TAF gonna have to buy a lot TF-Xs to make the program cost more efficient per aircraft. They would not be eager to invest in a second fighter program. They also do not need such an aircraft, f-16b70 and TF-X will have to do it. TAI would not want to invest their own resources for such a risky...
