Turkiye wants to buy F-16V
but Turkiye says we have option Fighter Jet from Europe ( NATO )

USA did not sell PATRIOT to Turkiye and we bought S400 from Russia ( and USA has started crying )

if USA doesnt sell even F-16 to Turkiye , then the most serious option would be the Eurofighter Typhoon ( Turkiye needs Fighter Jets and no time to wait for American caprice )
You've posted this whole thing dozens of times here.With the exception of "Eurofighter",where you usually included Su-35 or something indigenous. It's always the others' fault. It's never Turkey's foreign policy.

Even if Turkey did not get the S400, the Americans would have another excuse not to give F35's to Turkiye. The reality is that Israel does not
want to see a muslim country getting hold of the F35. They might geet it maybe 5/10 years later and it will be a different version from Israels.

Thank God Pakistan moved onto the J10C because they were playing this game with Pakistan for along time.
You can't trust the Americans on that.

Just Making part ? I dont need to re-explain. There is KFX/IFX sticky thread that you can read there about the work share, Indonesian IFX will be built in Indonesia

The center of development is in Korea and this is why we send around 100 design engineers to contribute on the development process.

"Despite such a delay in payment, the Indonesian side has continued to send its researchers to South Korea to take part in the development process," Rep. Kim Joong-ro of the minor opposition Bareunmirae Party said during a parliamentary audit into the administration, voicing concern about technology leaks.

As of July, 114 Indonesian engineers were sent to South Korea to work with Korea Aerospace Industries Co. (KAI), the country's sole aircraft manufacturer, to design and make a prototype of the fighter, according to a DAPA official.


You talk without using source while I give good and credible source.

---------------------

No infrastructure ?

This is in Indonesia, even Anka and Aksungur wind tunnel test is conducted in Indonesia since 2008-2017. Indonesia has developed airplane since 1976 and we have already had many infrastructure, heck even you just have birth impact test facility in TAI where we have already had it since long time ago as an example.


----------------------------

About AESA ? You look like Erdogan, even credible news from Jane defense doesnt convince you.

The development of Korean AESA radar has been started since long time ago. If I am not mistaken I have posted the photo of the development since early 2010 and the way they can make it smaller and smaller gradually


100 engineers? Even Baykar have more engineers working on ther drone, still good luck.

Ex-German FM slams West for not selling Turkey air defense systems​



Former German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel criticized the West on Tuesday for refusing to sell air defense systems to Turkey when the NATO member needed them.

Turkey consequently decided to purchase the S-400 missile defense system from Russia, a hard decision for a NATO country, Gabriel said


He emphasized that the West should be careful to maintain its relations with Turkey and do its best to keep the country within the Western bloc.

Turkey’s initial purchase of S-400s from Russia strained ties with the United States. The move prompted Washington to remove Turkey from the new generation F-35 Fighter jet program.

According to a Turkish official contacted by Defense News, the most serious option would be the Eurofighter Typhoon, produced by a consortium bringing together BAE Systems, Airbus and Leonardo.

Anyway, the Turkish defense official interviewed by Defense News confirmed that the Typhoon can be an "option", with the prospect of an order of around 80 aircraft. “These planes can even be assembled in Turkey, although they have a higher price then,” he said.

The Turkish government has been looking for solutions to modernize its combat aviation, which is mainly based on old-generation F-16 C/Ds as well as F-4E Phantom IIs. In recent months, Ankara has thus discussed the possible purchase of Su-57 "Felon" or Su-35 "Flanker-E" from Russia... and has said that it is considering possible cooperation with the Russian aeronautical industry to carry out its TF-X next-generation combat aircraft program.


Then, recently, Turkey expressed its wish to acquire 40 latest version of the F-16, called "Viper", as well as 80 kits to modernize part of the old generation F-16s implemented by its air force.

Only, such an order will have to obtain the approval of the United States Congress... And this one is not necessarily in the best disposition with regard to Ankara, in particular because of the tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean and its role in Syria, in Libya as well as in the last Nagorno-Karabakh war, having opposed Azerbaijan and Armenia, in October 2020. In addition, the purchase of the S-400 remains a bone of contention.

That said, Russia's invasion of eastern Ukraine may be a game-changer for Ankara, which, as a reminder, is close to Kiev [to the point of providing it with Bayraktar TB-2 drones] while being dependent on Moscow for its energy and grain supplies. In addition, Turkey had the opportunity to recall that it is a "strategic" member for NATO due to its ability to block the Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits, thus limiting the movements of Russian warships. But it is not certain that this is likely to encourage the purchase of American F-16s… or even their reintegration into the F-35 program.



Time to lift 'unjust' sanctions on Turkey's defence industry, Erdogan tells Biden​



ISTANBUL, March 10 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told U.S. President Joe Biden in a phone call on Thursday that it was past time to lift all "unjust" sanctions on Turkey's defence industry.

According to a statement from Erdogan's office, he also told Biden that Turkey expected its request to purchase 40 new F-16 fighter jets and modernise its existing fleet to be finalised as soon as possible

Do you guys know about the operation cost of these birds?

Number of engineers doesn't matter. If all engineers know what to do. A large number of engineers usually mean that these guys doesn't know much.

Do you guys think Turkiye is an African Country ?

even Turkiye spent around $100 billion for humanitarian aid to muslim countries in the last 12 years

Problem is not money , problem is politicans who spent billions of dollars for nothing and Turkish pilots still flying with garbage F-4s and old F-16s


Turkiye would buy 100 F-35A ( to spend $30 billion for buying , maintenance and the operation cost in 30 years )

but USA says no F-35A to Turkiye , even no F-16V to Turkiye
on the other hand USA gives F-15s to Egypt , France gives Rafale to Egypt and Greece

USA-France are arming Egypt and Greece against Turkiye
and USA is turning Turkish Air Force into another İranian Air Force

If you have 100 billions, you can purchase technologies.
