  • Turkey To Buy 100 Fighters!!

    NATO member Turkey plans to buy 100 new-generation combat aircraft under a $10 billion (8.3 billion euro) project over the next 20 years, Anatolia news agency quoted a senior official as saying March 28.

    By the end of the year, Ankara will make a choice between the U.S. F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, whose construction is led by Lockheed Martin, and the Eurofighter, being built by a European consortium, the head of the defense industries undersecretariat, Murad Bayar, said in Washington.
    The new warplanes would replace F-16 and F-4 aircraft currently used by the Turkish Air Force, Bayar said.

    Under the project, the government is aiming to ensure that sub-contracts worth 5$ billion are awarded to Turkish companies, he added.

    If they choose the JSF, I bet US will give them bonus aircrafts or discount like they did with the F-16's as the turks is a major ally of US.

    *Buy 80 JSF's and you'll get 100 JSF's for under $ 8B dollars.* haha Jokes
