No matter what the bashers of F-35 say if Turkey received the plane now they would all be jerking off on how great and capable the plane is.

Damn, watching this video always makes my heart ache. A pain for the lost first love that was taken from you... Something that was so close, so real and so good but was then taken away.

Losing the F-35s was a big blow to our air force but you need to understand that since we are at the point of no return, many of us try to find the silver lining out of that debacle. That being the acceleration of the TFX and the power packs; The concentration on our UCAV capabilities etc.

You fail to see that embargoes have always backfired to our favour regarding our defence industry and the shortcomings of the F-35 especially having the reigns in US hands have been repeatedly discussed before we got kicked out of the program.

I would've loved to see the F-35 in the Turkish Air Force but since that ship has sailed, maybe we should be thankful that we haven't just sat there and lamented the decision. Instead, our companies are working as hard as humanly possible to close that gap.

Did you guns know that there are 35 plies of cloth in the thickest part of the F35 composites.

Deep down i think everybody wants the F35.

I want that plane for the Turkish air force and deep down even with all the bs dilemmas. I want that plane 🥲
Don't hurt yourself so much. take a mockup. even if it doesn't cut it, get a rc model. :)

But in case you didn't know, let me remind you, Kızılelma made its first flight today. Maybe you want to buy a Kızılelma model.

We ditched the F35 because we will have our own. Our own planes and our own sovereignty.
Damn the f35 and the Usa. Kızılelma made its first flight today. From now on, let the Pentagon make its precious f 16 and f 35 razors.

How can I say something like that for something that we may be fighting against some day. Please be considerate.

Brother, I am a person who does not even buy foreign brand white goods or mobile phones. I am against our money going out. No foreign aircraft appeals to me.

We didn’t ditch anything. We got kicked out. Let’s get that cleared first. Secondly we definitely needed and wanted those planes really badly. We are in a really vulnerable situation without those plane as of right now. Just saying

Guys! Let's bash f35 more!😂
The reason the Germans bought the F35 is not because they like the plane so much.

Like the joint nuclear bombs that are said to be in our incirlik, they also had nuclear bombs in a base with the United States. They will get a limited number of f 35s just for dropping these bombs.

There were also f18 grovler purchase stories. I don't know what the result was.

Lol, to drop those bombs (B61) in a contested airspace, there's not that many aircraft that could afford to back in one piece like the F-35s.

What do you want from people who don't even know the data link? Maybe he thinks you lack military aviation knowledge.
Save your time.

For some reason, the USA does not want anyone other than the planes it developed to launch the nuclear.

maybe that's why our guys got the new f 16 blk 70. But if we no longer buy planes from the usa with mmu, how will this ammunition be used?

The mine was empty.
