Turkey is mostly getting non crucial ToT, rest is coming either in kits or on component base from abroad. First exception partially would be this F-35 lemon where you get to produce certain "consumables" as third tier partner in the project.
Altay Tank, T-129 Attack Helikopter, U-214 TN subs, Anadolu LHD are just some examples.
About F-35, we produce the center fuselage, and some criticical parts for the F-135 engine.

Altay? What Altay has to do with US and NATO? Its off the shelf stuff anyone can buy.
You never recieved any U-214 ToT all mission sensitive equipment was provided not produced in Turkey.
T-129 is Italian project, and not very good one for that matter, again nothing that someone cant procure without being in NATO. Anadolu LHD again commercial procurement...
You produce it by the materials provided by someone else, basically you are cheap workforce, know-how is far out of your reach, cant you research abit into what "third tier partner" in F-35 project has insight into?
And... no. Stop imagining some type of big importance of Turkey on global scale. You are spot on the map. If Americans wanted Erdogan somewhere else, he would be, they have plenttyy of experience in these things.
