Definitely a mistake. They should have waited another 10 to 15 years, developed their defence industry fully. 5th generation fighter jets, helicopters, highly developed economy. They would have automatically risen as a regional power.turkey s-400 deal makes so many blunders .
Unless ofcourse Turkey is confident they can make their own 5th, 6th generation fighter jets and engines, own helicopter engine etc, only time will tell.
Pakistan would love to have this gunship. 100 T129s and its bye bye to USA gunships
