    The Turkish defence industry no doubt has made many great strides over the years, the question is who can we compare our techonological advancements with and what is our war time production capacity?

    For example we know Germany produces some great tech and has an industry that can function for a full scale war, Russia, UK, US the same.

    Countries as Italy, Sweden, Spain have the tech and know how to, but there production capacity I don’t know, is questionable.

    Where would Turkey fit into the question here, who can we compare Turkey with, where are we expected to be by 2030 for example.

    Serious answers only please no trolls.

    Wars today are fought in very different time scales (days and weeks instead of months and years) and modern military equipment is complex to procure and manufacture. Often, it requires significant long lead materials or parts, coming from a variety of sub-contractors, some of them being abroad too.

    For this reason, most big countries that enjoy a good degree of domestic military industry development and participation focus on self-sufficiency in the production of things that you expend in fighting (mainly ammunition of all types and spare/maintenance parts). Said countries also retain the capability to swiftly produce basic, non complex military equipment (like small arms for example).
