Turkey's Expanding Defence Industry

Turkey's Expanding Defence Industry

In less than two decades, Turkey has transformed itself from a massive importer of arms to a major innovator and global supplier. The government says its dependence on foreign defence systems is now only 30 percent, and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to completely end this dependency by 2023. We look at what’s behind the sector’s rapid progress and what more can it achieve.

    BUt, Bangladesh isn’t definitely not friendly with turkey to be truth. Cos, they wish to do more corruption, they want to by more costly weapon, where big deal can be done and 1/2 of money they could take for themself. They ultimately wish to live in western country, so they are busy of making money, In every goverment affliate institution, all their sons, and daughter lives abroad, IN older age all this traitor ( so called leader) will live there.

    We only have to look at history to understand what the turkic people and Muslims uniting can achieve. When it comes to the crunch, every citizen, every Muslim support citizens become a weapon against oppression and injustice. The biggest conqueror in life is justice. The world forgets that Muslims live for justice and die for justice. With 1.5 Billion Muslims in the world any war against Islam would become the western worlds nightmare and the rest of the rest of the world will be fighting a war they can not win. So if the world can find a way to live in peace, we all will be OK, but if they keep pushing their agendas, then we are looking at a dark future.

    0:18 She said 7 Turkish companies in World Top 100 Global Defense List.
    If you check latest SIPRI report, only 2 Turkish company made to the World Top 100 Global Defense List
    #54 ASELSAN – $1.74 Billion of Defense Sales
    #84 Turkish Aerospace industries – $1.07 Billion of Defense Sales
    Japan has 6 companies and they have likes of Mitsubishi Heavy, Kawasaki Heavy, Fujitsu etc. Fake News by Erdoğan at its best.
