“Within the framework of the visit, Haluk Gorgun informed the President Ilham Aliyev about the signing of memorandums of understanding between the companies of the Turkish delegation and Azerbaijani defense industry companies on joint activities in several directions.”


Recall that Azerbaijan will invest at least 1 billion manat (~ $600 million) in local defence industry plants this year alone.
Why are our companies not building production facilities for missiles and bombs as well as shells in Azerbaijan?

I don't know what those are but they are not Cobra IIs.
Chinese dongfeng mengshi and that camo does not belong to FSK. But there was a Kosovo police official that said a couple days ago that they bought armoured vehicles so maybe those will be from turkiye

Roketsan TRG-230. (In BD Army's camouflage) We definitely need more of these and it's big brother TRG-300. Preferably 2x more Regiments. Last year a production batch meant for BD Army was sent to Ukraine. Hopefully, we will receive more (in 2025) from the next production batch.

Why would a production batch be redirected to Ukraine, I mean this can't be done without BD permission as it's their product being built.

Do you know what could be the cause ? How is the trade volume between Ukraine and BD, or did you get something to sweeten the delay ?

Yes, I think it was with BD's permission. And we probably got something that sweeten the deal. Otherwise i couldn't see why would they agree to it. It was probably something last minute. Roketsan didn't even bother to change the BD army camo on the system.

Aziz Başkan çıldırdı.
He doesn't sell platforms, he sells shipyards, builds them, then sells a whole flotilla and builds navy from scratch (with everthing necessary, even the standardization, documenting and so on). You need a navy? Call Aziz Başkan. If He makes through half of what i hear he alone will surpass sells fo STM or any other shipyard combined, in total value.

Is that a smart move ?

I would say why not, the shipyard in Turkmenistan works as a branch of Dearsan where qualified personnel supplied from here and maintance carried out by them. It would be the same since these countries are lesslikely to operate a shipyard or a maintain a Navy on their own.

Which country?
We know Tanzania, Nigeria and Kazakhstan so far i think they negotiate with more.

If it's like that I think it's a interesting and good way of leaving a good footprint and hopefully contribute to lasting relations :)

As you said if those nations have no culture towards seafaring, then maintaining those harbours, shipyards is quickly go downwards.

A large delegation of representatives of Turkish military-technical companies led by the head of the Defense Industry Committee, Haluk Gergün
President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev received it personally.

It is already possible to draw preliminary conclusions about which component of the Azerbaijani armed forces will be transformed first.
The most intensive negotiations took place with representatives of REPCON, MKE and ASFAT companies. In particular, the issue of establishing the production of 155-mm artillery ammunition in Azerbaijan was raised.
Azerbaijan will gradually transfer its artillery units to the 155 mm caliber, moving away from the Soviet 152 mm.
A photograph of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Haluk Gergun with an image of a KAAN fighter can certainly indicate the prospect of the Azerbaijani Air Force switching to these combat aircraft. But what is already happening is the improvement of the performance of Azerbaijani aviation due to modernization by Turkish companies.
During the visit, the issue was raised about the further implementation of the project to modernize the Su-25 attack aircraft of the Azerbaijan Air Force, implemented by TUSAŞ. The Azerbaijani Air Force still operates Soviet Su-25 attack aircraft, which require updating, in particular the integration of modern weapons and reconnaissance systems.

Last year, the first Azerbaijani Su-25 was presented, modernized by the Turkish company Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), presented under the designation ML (Modernized LAÇIN).

The issue of purchasing Korkut short-range anti-aircraft artillery systems for the needs of the Azerbaijani air defense forces was raised with representatives of the ASELSAN company. These systems, as the experience of the war in Ukraine has shown, are very effective against small objects, such as Shahed-136 kamikaze drones. In turn, Azerbaijan’s proximity to a neighbor such as Iran makes the relevance of such systems very acute.
The issue of acquiring Gurz anti-aircraft missile and artillery systems was also raised, which clearly indicates the plans of the Azerbaijani leadership to modernize its air defense forces and at least find a modern alternative to the ZSU-23-4 Shilka and a number of other models of the Soviet anti-aircraft component.
Azerbaijan intends not only to modernize, but also to unify the range of weapons of its army, focusing on the Turkish military-industrial complex. On the one hand, this will significantly update and strengthen the potential of the Azerbaijani army, on the other hand, it will reduce dependence on Soviet and Russian weapons, which are morally and technically inappropriate to the challenges of modern war.
It is obvious that Azerbaijan intends to begin a serious rearmament of its army in the near future, and Turkey will play an important role in this process.
The Azerbaijani press reports this.

"Turkic Navy" will dominate the Caspian Sea?
The Türkiye company Dearsan Shipyard begins construction of various types of warships in Kazakhstan. The Dearsan shipyard will build approximately nineteen types of warships, including patrol and attack boats, amphibious assault ships, training ships, and research vessels.
An article by American analyst Paul Goble published on the Jamestown Foundation website states that Türkiye-Kazakh cooperation in the field of military shipbuilding could change the balance of power in the Caspian in the coming years. Which, according to Goble, will help the Kazakh Navy compete even with the Russian fleet, and Türkiye will strengthen its position in this region.
It should be noted that in 2021, the 92-meter corvette “Deniz Khan”, assembled for the Turkmen Navy from sections supplied by the Türkiye company Gülhan & Dearsan İş Ortaklığı, rolled off the slipways of the State Border shipbuilding and ship repair plant. Border guard of Turkmenistan in the port of Ufra. We are talking about a warship created on the basis of the S92 project...
Azerbaijan also has plans to strengthen its Caspian fleet through cooperation with Ankara. In 2021, Ismail Demir stated that Azerbaijan is interested in the TGG Anadolu landing ship, the world's first warship equipped with unmanned aircraft...

These ships will initially be assembled at the Turkish company Dearsan Shipyard in Kazakhstan, and later the shipyard could be sold to Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan...
All this in general allows us to conclude that the naval forces of the Turkic states of the region have significantly strengthened, as well as the possible establishment in the near future of a balance of power in the Caspian Sea with the previously dominant naval forces of Russia. and Iran...

Thus, Turkey’s indirect access to the Caspian Sea with its shipbuilding company gives new impetus to the struggle for influence in the Caspian Sea, which not only has rich hydrocarbon reserves, but is also a key element of the “Middle Corridor”.
(Farxad Mamedov. Azerbaijani political scientist)

LoL, now this guy (former army captain/current president) owns a better UAV fleet than Bangladesh army.

This guy proved his worth on the battlefield and received training in Morocco. The Sahel region is a very interesting place for many regional powers in the world. Now his job is to eliminate the threats against terrorist in the country, as well as protect their own interest against foreign interference militarily. Bangladesh will eventually grow with the economy expanding, and Turkey might be an important ally and partner for Bangladesh.
