Normally Turkiye would never reach 100 million inhabitants, studies show this. But because of the ignorant bigots from Syria and Afghanistan, it may pass now.Since it takes a long time maybe it's not wrong to look ahead. Now we don't need a carrier and it seems like a waste of resources but in the 2030's we will have a bigger Air force, economy and a population which will go into the direction of 100 million people.
I think Turkey will be an important player in Asia and Europe if we don't start procurement now, maybe we will wish we did so in 10 years
These are all for reputation, the president of Turkiye attaches great importance to reputation. That is why we are building an aircraft carrier.
I prefer 10 TF2000 and submarines instead of YNUG
