    Not necessarily. While their economy isn't doing so swell, they aren't broke.

    If scientists are playing politics, then they are at fault. No matter if right or wrong.

    But thanks for linking Vlad. We will see if it creates a major issue for them or not later down the road.

    So those S-400 batteries make more sense... Israel has intimate knowledge of Patriot so it wouldn't be any use to Turkey as the US would likely disable it at a critical time.

    The Israelis claiming they can get past S-400 because they can train with Patriot dressed up to look like S-400 is pathetic... If there is a conflict between Turkey and Israel I can see Assad joining the conflict on the side of Turkey in the interest of regaining the Golan Heights perhaps... what a messed up concept... but it is the sort of scenario that has been created by US meddling in the region... try to overthrow turkey and why would you expect them to remain loyal allies in what is basically your fight to get what you want... screw everyone else including allies when you get the chance.

    Infantry Fighting Vehicle and ATGMs
    Turkey Defense Industry Projects - Page 2 IFV-ATGM-CV-90-M2-Bradley

    An Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) is a vehicle providing armoured personnel carriers and infantry with fire support. IFVs can be wheeled or tracked and armies can take both wheeled and tracked IFVs into inventory. In armoured fighting vehicles, cannons have more varieties of caliber, compared to tanks and these calibers also differ by the doctrines of countries. Cannons are not the only solution to eliminate menaces, with antitank guided missile (ATGM) disturbing the equation.

    Turkey Begins To Use UAV for Forest Fires

    “For the first time, we will use UAVs to detect forest fires in this year” said Minister Pakdemirli.

    In a written statement, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry announced 3 fundamental strategies for fire fighting, stating “First strategy is prevention, namely providing fire prevention trainings to raise awaraness. We shall remember that of all, 88% of the forest fires are human-induced ve to reduce this ratio, we must ensure training, awareness and attention.”

    Quite true, but not everyone is making their own... many just buy from the shelf.

    I know Russia has a few drones for carrying on icebreakers to check the ice thickness which saves time and lots of money on helicopters, and their oil industry also uses drones to check power lines and pipelines in the middle of nowhere that go on forever... also making the job faster and easier and cheaper.

    UAVs for forest fires make sense too and will save lives and trees... good on them for spending money on saving lives in addition to ending them.

    No reason economically to make your own because countries needs only few to check for forest fires. The market is small.

    Russia is a big country and would also need drone to keep an eye on the big unpopulated areas so they need their own design and already have the civilian Orion drones.

    Initially, the MMU was planned to be like the F-22. Next to the F-35 as an air superiority aircraft. Even though its main task is air superiority, it is trying to be a multi-role aircraft.

    Back to the Future: Autonomous Technology

    AUTONOMOUS DRONES

    Autonomous systems are an integral part of warfare and used for multiple roles during or prior to an operation. An autonomous aerial vehicle is capable of collecting intelligence, surveillance or reconnaissance. Even opted by non- state actors, UAVs have been presumed to lack the tenacity humans possess. Unreliable as UAVs are said to be, there have hitherto been a variety of trials to make them a platform that can match wits with humans, reaping the fruits of AI-powered systems in order to lower the burden and risks of using humans in the field.

    Levels of Autonomy
    According to NATO, levels of autonomy of UAVs are categorized as:

    Level 1: Remotely Controlled System – System reactions and behaviour depend on operator input Level 2: Automated System – Reactions and behaviour depend on fixed built-in functionality (preprogrammed)

    Level 3: Autonomous non-learning system – Behaviour depends upon fixed built-in functionality or upon a fixed set of rules that dictate system behaviour (goal-directed reaction and behaviour).

    Level 4: Autonomous learning system with the ability to modify rules defining behaviours – Behaviour depends upon a set of rules that can be modified for continuously improving goal directed reactions and behaviours within an overarching set of inviolate rules/behaviours.

    In operating UAVs, the duration of OODA -the loop of orient, observe, decide and act- loop sets the level an operator may partake in. Level of autonomy is measured by the moment ‘the button’ is pushed.

    Turkey and Autonomous Drones: STM

    Interesting... so it is going to be used together with the F-35 if you get it...

    To be honest, if the Americans refuse to supply F-35s I think you guys would actually be having a lucky escape.... it honestly looks like a dog.

    You would probably be better off developing your own plane... I can't see how it could be worse...

    HGK and KGK integration into ANKA+ and AKSUNGUR begins

    Turkey Defense Industry Projects - Page 2 ANKA-AKSUNGUR-İHA-KGK-HGK-UAV-750x375

    The integration of Precision Guidance Kit / Hassas Güdüm Kiti (HGK) and Wing-Assisted Guidance Kit / Kanatlı Güdüm Kiti (KGK) developed by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey Defense Industries Research And Development Institute (TÜBİTAK SAGE), into twin-engine AKSUNGUR and single engine ANKA+ UAVs  has begun.

    The news was shared by Gürcan Okumuş, SAGE Institute Manager via Twitter:

    Placing the emphasis on the fact that Turkey is capable of integrating indigenous ammunition via indigenous softwares into its UAVs, Okumuş stated, “This capability will be a force multiplier in the field.”

    Soon, ANKA+ and AKSUNGUR will be involved in the inventory of security forces.

    ANKA+, which is a developed version of ANKA, has been evolved to have a higher capacity of carrying weapons, through its upgraded capacity of payloads. AKSUNGUR UAV has a payload capacity of 750 kg. After the integration of HGK and KGK has been completed, the UAVs’ capabilities will be boosted in the field. The effectiveness of the UAVs are estimated to be bolstered upon AKSUNGUR in the inventory.

    KGK developed by TÜBİTAK SAGE and manufactured by Kale Group provides a high precision strike capability within a range of up to 37 km when released at low altitude and 111 km at high altitude, depending upon the carrier platform.

    Marine Assault Vehicle will be in the inventory of the Turkish Naval Forces in 2022

    MAV, During the beach landing phase of an amphibious operation, these vehicles are launched from landing helicopter docks (LHD) and are able to rapidly cover the distance between the vessel and shore, allowing marine units to land under armor protection with the minimum delay. Once on land, they are able to operate alongside with other armored vehicles.

    First of I Class (Istif), TCG Istanbul will be launched by the end of 2020

    Turkey Defense Industry Projects - Page 2 -Sınıfı-Fırkateyn-İstif-Class-Frigate-750x375

    STM General Director Murat İkinci, who spoke at the panel held online and live by STM ThinkTech, made very important statements regarding the Istif (I) Class Frigate Project.

    “Particularly, I would like to touch upon I class. As you are also aware of, I class frigate is platform with about 15 m long version of MILGEM Project and highly important weapon systems mounted atop it. As you know, , the first 4 ships of the MILGEM Project were succesfully delivered to Turkish Armed and Naval Forces and are currently in service in a number of places, with East Mediterranean being in the first place, which is a glad news for our defense industry as the MILGEM Project is a project that came to light in cooperation with STM and ASELSAN, ROKETSAN, HAVELSAN as well as many other small-scale subcompanies and a good example to display the level where Turkish defense industry has reached” said Murat İkinci.

    “From now onwards, the 4 ships, which are a follow-up of the MILGEM Project will not be produced as corvettes. Instead, they will be in the form of I class frigates and manufactured so. The construction of the ship as the first version of I class still continues to be produced in Naval Forces shipyard run Istanbul Naval Shipyard Command in the charge of STM as the prime contractor and with the participation of a number of companies.”

    “There is no flaw or delay here. On the contrary, considering the situation in East Mediterranean, we exert every effort to deliver the I class frigate to the Armed Forces before the scheduled date.”

    “Our plan is that by the end of 2020, the I class frigate will be launched. I hope that following the equipping of the shit once launched, it will be successfully delivered to the Armed Forces.”

    TUSAS Turkish company announced the completion of the production of the Turkish first supersonic drone Aksungur.

    The drone will be supersonic, which will be faster than sound, and can fly at a speed of approximately 1600 km per hour.

    Aksungur will be equipped with Gökdoğan and Bozdoğan missiles used in F-16 and F-4 warplanes.
    It is also expected that it will have the equipment to make itself appear on the radar as an F-16 warplane and to deceive the radars across it.

    Correction:
    The drone name is Göksungur, not Aksungur.

    Aksungur had already been produced and has a different carry loads and functions.

    They have a variety of neighbours... it is unlikely any one type of weapon will work perfectly against all of them, but certainly to perform the roles the Su-24 with Gefest & T upgrade to allow altitude bombing with cheap simple bombs it should not be that hard... so such a Kurd bomber would be an effective weapon the Kurds on their own could not deal with...

    Agreement on the construction of Turkish corvettes of the MILGEM project for the Ukrainian Navy

    LLC "Shipbuilding Plant" Ocean "(Nikolaev) on December 21, 2020 announced that it had signed a memorandum with the State Defense Concern of the Republic of Turkey [apparently referring to the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate - SSB - bmpd ] on joint activities to implement a project to build a series of ships of the class "Corvette" for the naval forces of Ukraine in pursuance of the Military Framework Agreement signed in October 2020 during the meeting of the presidents of Ukraine and the Republic of Turkey in Ankara, as well as the contract for the construction of corvettes, signed by the parties on December 14 this year in Kiev.


    In order to localize the corvette program, the State Defense Concern of the Republic of Turkey conducted an audit of the technical capabilities of shipbuilding enterprises in Ukraine. The Ocean shipyard was selected and included in the corvette program, taking into account the unique technical capabilities of the enterprise, the availability of professional personnel and the current program for the modernization of production assets.

    The Memorandum provides for the conclusion of separate contracts between the parties within clearly agreed terms and specific steps of cooperation within the framework of the corvette program.


    From the bmpd side, we indicatethat according to the Ukrainian media, the agreement signed on December 14, 2020 in Kiev by the head of the Turkish SSB Ismail Demir provides for the construction of five corvettes of the Turkish MILGEM project (type Ada) for the Ukrainian Navy. At the same time, the head corvette will be completely built at a Turkish shipyard (apparently, the Istanbul Naval Shipyard, which was building these ships for the Turkish Navy), its cost for Ukraine will be about 8 billion hryvnia (about 265 million euros) - apparently, excluding the cost of weapons. The remaining four corvettes are to be built in Ukraine at the Ocean plant. Details of equipping ships with weapons and electronic systems are not yet known. The laying of the lead ship in Turkey is supposedly possible already in 2021 with the delivery of the Ukrainian fleet in this case by the end of 2024.

    It is unclear where Ukraine will get funds for such an ambitious program - according to Turkish sources, the framework cost of the contract with Ukraine is more than $ 1 billion. In any case, from the Russian point of view, Ukraine's attempts at such expenses on the fleet should be welcomed.
