in 2000s Greeks always said that we have superior weapons like Embraer R-99 AEWC , Type-214 class Submarine , PATRIOT Air Defense System , AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter , CH-47 Chinook heavy transport Helicopter , F-16 block52M Fighter Jet , SCALP-EG air launched Cruise Missile , Coastal Defense System EXOCET , etc

Turkiye acquired new military capabilities in the last 10 years for the military superiority in the region

1 ... Airborne Early Warning Aircraft

Greece has 4 Embraer R-99 AEWC since 2004

Turkish Airforce has 4 Boeing E-7T AEWCs since 2015

The radar is capable of simultaneous air and sea search, fighter control and area search, with a maximum range of over 600 km (look-up mode)

The radar antenna array is also doubled as an ELINT array, with a maximum range of over 850 km at 9,000 metres (30,000 ft) altitude



2 .. Air Defense Systems

Greece has PATRIOT , S300 , TOR M-1 high and medium altitude Air Defense Systems since 2000s

It's funny,he keeps saying Turkey is a superpower,but constantly compares the inventory with Greece instead of countries like USA,Russia,France,Britain 😂
Nobody says Turkiye is superpower , btw Russia,France,The UK also are not superpower

Dont worry when all Turkish major military projects finish until 2030. then everybody will see what about advanced military technologies

only one example in the next 2 or 3 years
Turkish KIZILELMA unmanned stealth Fighter Jet and Ramjet powered GOKHAN long range air to air missile to beat 4th generation Fighter Jets French Rafale or Russian SU-35 in BVR combat

now Greece is dreaming about fighting Turkiye and I show what about Greece's military capabilities

except losing of 100 F-35A, Turkiye does not have a military capacity lower than France
France has nuclear weapons , nothing else special

14 ... Laser Electronic Warfare System

Only Turkiye in Europe

First NAZAR Laser Electronic Warfare System will be delivered to the Turkish Navy in september 2022

It can paralyze the seeker heads on E/O and IR missiles at 5 different wavelengths.
NAZAR has 2 times more effective range than the Phalanx CIWS

LIDAR (Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging)

The system sends some laser lights towards the missile head, and according to the reflections coming from there, it understands at which wavelength it is a seeker
Then it continues this reflection and creates a glare there, a glare we call the 'cat's eye effect'.
Then it begins to follow this glow. While following, a directed laser beams against the threat in a suitable modulation,

after this beam that the seeker head is paralyzed

cutting edge technology that develops by very few Countries in the World
