How can Turkish Defense Industry Continue to Grow so Rapidly?

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Once reliant on weapons supplied by its NATO allies, especially the U.S. and Germany, Turkey today knows that it cannot be a regional power without a deterrent military force and that it cannot maintain its independence without a defense industry.

One of the most important pillars of success for a state is the ability to produce its own weapons and defense tools.

I think that Turkey deserves recognition, instead of being mocked by its so called "allies" and being sanctioned it would be better to realize how powerful Turkey really is in that whole region..

These are not reversed engineered products, instead, all the technologies used within these weapons have their own R&D departments. Turkey takes seriously the defence technology business.

As rightly pointed out in the video, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. The US actually made a strategic mistake by denying some key military technology to Turkey which resulted in this fast development in defense industry. The video actually lacked giving information about radar scrambling capabilities of unique Koral system. Success of Bayraktar tb2 lies in interoperability of armed uavs with these systems. That’s how SA22 Pantsir’s are eliminated. Right now Turkey is the record holder NATO country in eliminating modern Russian weapon systems. Next year with the introduction of Akinci, armed uav efficiency in the theatre of war shall increase logarithmically. Hence, Tb2’s role would be redefined as more tactical. In any case it is very highly likely that Bayraktar’s uav exports will grow exponentially in the coming years. Turkish Ukrainian cooperation will also serve the industry quite well.
Overall, effective use of armed uavs can be regarded as a new military doctrine. One positive result of this new warfare is that fighting proxy insurgents is becoming less costly and less risky for states and exactly the opposite for the proxy forces. Therefore uavs do help states in combatting terrorist entities. Advanced uavs have the potential to bring stability to some regions.
Hadn’t intended to write that long, this turned into an article though:)
