Turkey supplies F-35 block? Fear of technology transfer

48
A group of US senators, including Republicans and Democrats, want to block the supply of F-35 fighter jets to Turkey. The reason was the detention of American pastor Andrew Brunson in Turkey, reports RIA News.




The bill was drafted by Senators James Lankford, Jeanine Sahin, Tom Tillis.

Recall, as part of the multinational development program F-35 under the auspices of the United States, Turkey has pledged to buy 116 fighters.

According to Senator Lenkford, Turkish President Recep Erdogan “neglects the rule of law,” and therefore the supply of sensitive technologies to this government is “extremely risky.”

The strategic decisions of Turkey, unfortunately, more and more fall out of line and sometimes contradict the interests of the United States. In addition, the Turkish government continues to move closer to Russia more and more, while they are holding an innocent American pastor in prison to use him as a pawn during political negotiations,
added senator.

In turn, Tillis noted that Ankara "is undermining relations between the two countries."

In Turkey, after the insurrection in 2016, about 50 thousand people were arrested, about 140 thousand civil servants were dismissed or suspended from work.

Among those arrested was evangelical pastor Brunson, who has been in prison since October 2016. In May, 2017, Donald Trump at a meeting with President Erdogan asked to release Branson, and in September Erdogan offered the United States to extradite Gülen in exchange for Branson.

          And since the project with India is being released on a promising plane. Turkey may well deal with it. Yes, and logistics will be easier

            The fact is that Turkey has invested in the development of the F-35, this is their plane too. They can’t refuse a priori .... Here, the amers’s borzometer reads off scale, all conceivable agreements and laws are driven by the tail ... I’m sure that if Turkey had started to abandon the F-35 a little earlier, it would have wanted (well, for Pontus) to buy something else, then the Americans would force them to shove Turkey ...

      Well, if ours enter into a contract for the supply of SU-35, the NATO team will howl like rabid dogs. Another thing is how Greece, Cyprus will react ... Or maybe they are SU-35 and both of them in the CSTO? smile

      Sorry for Russia. For it is naive to think that Turkey will one day be on our side.
      Each F-35 at the cost of its service will drink blood from the economies of the countries that bought it. And this is due to the fact that the defense capabilities of these countries are unlikely to increase. Thus, in my opinion, this American project simply weakens all our enemies.

        Su-30MKI is also tied to service ... Owning modern 4th and 5th generation fighter jets is expensive. For the F-35 in Turkey, some kind of assembly production was built.

            And I'm talking about the fact that Sukhoi has this price too, like Rafal .... It's just that they are not like the F-35 tied to the manufacturer.

          Any aircraft is tied to a service. The question is different - what is the resource between services, the complexity of this service, labor costs and price. I think here is the 35th ahead of the rest. (in all respects) smile

            The F-35 has a very tight connection to the server of the parent company, and you can cut a lot of functions out of it if you behave badly and fight in the wrong direction.

    Unlikely recourse Striped do not differ in principle in the supply of weapons, greed and thirst for money will prevail wink
    Turkey’s strategic decisions, unfortunately, are increasingly falling out of line and sometimes contrary to US interests.
    - It can not but rejoice.
    Recall, as part of the multinational development program F-35 under the auspices of the United States, Turkey has pledged to buy 116 fighters.
    - Nothing, the NATO countries are rich, increasing the cost by reducing the series will easily “pull” good

    Erdogan is probably glad that they can block the supply. He promised to buy 116 planes for a lot of money, and now he is debiting with a loan and thinks that he was not in a hurry. And with the exchange of Gulen for the pastor, he came up well. Of course, they won’t give Ghoulin away, but the pastor will also "preach" in prison.

      It’s nothing good that Yordogan essentially takes a person (pastor), puts him in jail and starts a bargain, no. Tomorrow he can grab some Russian citizen and start a bargain with you. He, frankly, is a vile type, this Yardogan . Hostage trade flourished among pirates.

        Are you sure that the pastor was not implicated in the coup attempt, because the "ears" of the United States stuck out noticeably? If Erdogan needed hostages, I assure him he would have found them.
