Showcasing its drones, radars, and helicopters, Turkey’s defence companies are hoping to become major players in the global arms industry. Already the 13th largest defence exporter, and 4th biggest drone producer, Turkey also has big ambitions to become a self-sufficient military force. We look at the steps it is taking.

The progress of Turkish defence industry in the past decade is quite astonishing and is one that left all its foes and friend mouth wide agape in equal measures needless to mention its growth in both soft and hard power too, especially in middle east and Africa.
Turkey has successfully presented itself as an afroasian country, with its airline flying to 60 African city, second after Ethiopian airline and first in cargo services in Africa.
Turkey also has military deals with several African countries like Libya, somalia and recently Niger.
Turkish government prowess in foreign policy advancement is at its climax and that has pitted her against her western alliance, especially France which always saw Africa as its cash cow.
Turkey's involvement in Africa is one that come in a multifaceted manner, ranging from education, heath, construction, diplomacy, military deals and trade.
Disequilibrium in world power polarity notwithstanding, I hold the considered opinion that Turkey has cut itself a niche in international system under the stewardship of current president Taib Rajab erdogan.respect from Kenya 🇰🇪East africa

As a Moroccan, I am really amazed by the BOOM of the Turkish military industry as it is an ultra complex industry that requires decades of investment and research. Turkey is today one of the few countries in the world exporting weapons and more importantly it is able to supply its own army with various weapons (drones, tanks/armored vehicles, helicopters, rifles etc...) and ammunition produced locally. The next step will certainly be the production of a fighter plane made in Turkey (for which the country is already working on). Respect to Turkey 👍.

Weapons autonomy will play a great role in the future warfare. Nations relying on imports will have their tails twisted in their legs when the exporters will refuse maintenance or spare parts. Turkey on the right track! Bravo!

Muslim countries need to develop:

1.) Jet Engines
2.) Advanced Radars
3.) Global Positioning Systems
4.) Tank Engines

Turkey, Pakistan, Qatar, Malaysia should all co-operate in this endeavour.

Pakistan is largest importer of Turkish defence products

Pakistan is also biggest partner of turkish defence industry



turkey needs a aircraft carrier and strong navy to protect the sea. Tanks are nothing against flying jets. So focus on air and sea rather than land.

Turkey Shows almost every day something new it's just a matter of some time. They have crazy ingenious people on board thanks to Erdoğan. Without him it would be like back in early 90s! Turkey is a regional super power right now and if it continues like that we all know where it will go...greetings from Antalya
