American company excludes Turkey from F-35 program listings


Turkey was finally excluded from the joint production program with the United States fifth-generation fighter F-35A. Initially, the contract involved the creation of hundreds of such aircraft for Turkey. But after signing the contract between Ankara and Moscow on the acquisition of the Russian S-400 Triumph air defense systems in the USA, the F-35 program for Turkey was suspended. Already paid aircraft were not transferred to Ankara.


Lockheed Martin has excluded Turkey from the list of participants in the project to create the F-35A. At the same time, an official statement from the leadership of the American company has not yet been made.

Earlier in the USA, people were thinking about who to sell several fighter jets made for Turkey. Among others, it was called, for example, Israel.
Turkish President Recep Erdogan reacted negatively to US sanctions, saying Ankara would buy weapon and one who "wants to, because it is an independent state."

Recall that last year, when Erdogan visited Russia, he was shown a 5th generation fighter Su-57. Later in Turkey, they announced that they were “considering various options for updating their Air Force.” To date, the basis of the Turkish Air Force - F-16 fighters.

      If we were in NATO, the whole world would buy our air defense systems, even the United States, I think, did not disdain.

              This task has not lost its relevance to the “civilized west”, God forgive me, since the time of King Peas. After the collapse of the Union, amers had to overcome the euphoria of Europeans about the absence of a military threat. What they can do without a doubt: they drove into the heads of Western Europeans - we, America, ensure your calm sleep. Oriental just bought cheaply.

            All eastern Europe is Slavs.
            But both Czechs and Poles fit perfectly
            into European culture. And the Hungarians, whose ancestors are Huns, also fit in.
            Russians are a classic European people. This is confirmed by emigrants from Russia, who already in the 2-3 generation merge completely with the inhabitants of those European countries (and the USA, Canada, Australia), where they leave for various reasons.
            It is not necessary to be number one in Europe, but to be equal is a very real task.

                  This, sir, is the structure of Anglo-Saxon society

                  Look at any high-profile process or a well-known event, the names of politicians, senior management, hereinafter, judge prosecutors, investigators, military officers, command, simply influential and wealthy people

                  All surnames Watson, Griffin, Anderson ... there are no immigrants from Eastern Europe

                  Exception Ekaterina Petelina, Visa Top Manager for the Sev. America. But this is exotic and rather a tribute to political correctness.

    Americans with one hand stroking the head of the obstinate Sultan morally supporting in Syria and giving promises, and with the other clapping below their backs for his obstinate character and the purchase of weapons from the "wrong" country. With a stick and a carrot, trying to force NATO to comply with the chief.

    Turkey was finally excluded from the joint production program with the United States fifth-generation fighter F-35A.
