Looks like someone is butt-hurt down here. So much envy in his post.Dude, Syria is a joke. Even ISIS beat them on many occasions in the past. Their worthy air assets like the S-300 is under the control of Russians and they will never lock on Turkish targets. Targeting Israel or Turkey with S-300 is a red line for the Russians.
Syria itself operates the S-200 only.
Libya is even a bigger joke, need to explain more ?
So have we, now wait for our own MALE UCAV.Joke or not but Syria is the closest a UCAV have seen actual action against an enemy that can potentially shot them down. And i dont think we can find an example of drone warfare in modern skirmishes as Turkish operations in Syria and Libya.
Other then that US have been bombing the rag tag Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and Alqaeda in Yemen.
I mean Counterinsurgency and Battlefield level operarions is a day night difference.
I didnt mean it like that at all. I was being sarcastic. Im saying even though we dont see eye to eye with the current saudi regime we should be open for military cooperation hoping that saudis will eventually will find us an indispensable partner. Turkey dont have anything against saudis, its the saudi who have the chip on their shoulder and who tend to conspire against us.It's Backstabbing your own ppl with giving licenses
Welcome to Realpolitik... Where the Masters throw bones for the little guys to offer a show...No source or anything?
This news is not making sense for me. Why would Saudis go for an unproven UAV which is not even being used by it's own military while they have all the money the set-up JVs with their favourite Western Companies.
Why Turkish government would give export lisence to Vestel inorder to set-up a shop in a country which attacks Yemen. For several times Turkish government critisized Saudis for their actions in Yemen.
"Smart" Turkified and Arabized Muslim Macedonians like you should quit daydreaming. KSA is not Qatar (for the time being only) nor is KSA going to fund any of your firms when there are many better alternatives that already cooperate with KSA.Excellent news thanks to “smart” saudis Turkey will have third UCAV producer with stable financial situation without spending 1 cent
KSA was never a part of any Ottoman entity (which was never a strong centralized state let alone homogenous). The Sharifate of Makkah and Madinah (Hijaz was the only historical region with ties to the Ottomans and that too only in name (nominal) and with little presence or influence in day to day dealings. The ruling dynasty was local as well and 99.99% of the population was local. Every educated Arab is also well aware that the 350-400 year long Ottoman presence (themselves heavily Arabized on almost every front - most of the population being of Arab origin as well, lol) in some areas of the Arab world (less than 1/3 of the Arab territory) was a dark age with zero development so we don't owe you anything. It is your Erdogan and his Arab wife that have got a recent obsession about Arab affairs, not the other way around.since ottoman era hoping huh?
Most media in the world have zero clue about military deals. Arab media is no different. They are recycling old news. 100's of such deals have supposedly been signed with 100 of different countries. In reality only 20% or so have amounted to anything concrete and I am well aware that such deals and cooperation takes time to implement but this news is obviously not authentic and no main military news source (respected) is reporting it.
