I think we are overrating the threat of "terrorists" in terms of development of such technology when the real threat emerging for Turkey is countries like the US. Just like China and Russia (and Israel), Turkey should concentrate building high level weaponry to be able to deal with superpowers like the US and Russia and to my understanding, the main way to deal with such countries is blinding their satellite systems.

I'm not an engineer, neither do I have technical expertise in such things. But I believe China has built or working on something that can blind US satellites using lasers: https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a29307535/china-satellite-laser-blinding/

At least they've got the right idea in my opinion. The US war machine is highly dependent on satellites and electronic intelligence systems. Take, for example, the F-35. If a country is able to blind the American satellites, F-35 becomes blind metal in the air. Same applies to American missiles and other aircraft (both manned and UAV). If you can blind or take down American satellites, you can take down their aircraft and their smart missiles become useless.

This is what Turkey needs to focus in my opinion.
Thats possible by deploying laser weapon on satellites(even though is it forbidden). for that reason you need to develop your own satellite and lunch rocket, which Turkey works on ;)

At the opening of the Electromagnetic Launch System Development Laboratory established in ASELSAN, the barrel energy record was broken in the firing with Electromagnetic Cannon System #TUFAN.
good. Aselsan is proud of their EM barrel energy not their storage power like other company(şahi). i wonder how much they reached (MegaJoule) ?

Barrel energy output is only 1 MJ, if that is Turkey records then wtf şahi 10 MJ story? they are cheating our people.

I think one of them is telling the energy spent during firing process and one of them is telling the kinetic energy of projectile. The second one is the importand and significant one.

For those, who can't read :D
3km range, isnt it low for drones and missiles?
