From chassis to center section: which Turkish parts need to be replaced in the F-35

41

Until at least 2022, the United States will continue to purchase approximately 900 components from Turkey for the production of the F-35 combat aircraft. Refusal from them was indicated after Ankara acquired the S-400 air defense system from Russia, but how real is it?


Making changes to the production chain will require a substantial investment, amounting to about a billion dollars. According to the State Department, at least until 2022, they will have to rely on supplies from Turkey. Many elements of the American fighter are produced here. What exactly require replacement for the F-35 in the US? These are parts of the landing gear, center section, fuselage, air intakes, valves.

Companies such as Aselsan, Havelsan and Kale Aero supply important avionics and engine components. A number of products are produced exclusively in Turkey. Failure to do so will lead to delays in the release of aircraft.

At the same time, the White House previously intended to replace Turkish parts by March 2020. Then they started talking about 2021. Now the graph is shifted again. As Ellen Lord, Deputy Secretary of State for Orders and Continuity of Supply for the Ministry of Defense, admitted, it was decided not to rush to transfer the production of parts from Turkey to another production site.

    And this will again affect the price.

      Yeah. The F35A is the cheapest modern fighter-bomber on the market. Can pick up a little prices.

    Are they giving Turkey a chance to "think again" or "coronavirus"?

      US presidential elections. After them, they will negotiate with Erdogan. While Erdogan needs to earn more trump cards. The West needs Turkey and Turkey needs the West, so they will agree. There will be a very big deal in all areas.

      I don’t understand something, they don’t sell the plane to the Turks, but buy parts for it ?! Doesn't it happen? Or how ?

      Neither one nor the other.
      It will require the development of documentation, the manufacture of prototypes, long and expensive tests, preparation of production, and this is the development and manufacture of equipment, tools, the purchase of equipment, provision of metrology, etc. etc.
      And first you will need to find those who are ready and able to do all this.
      Everything takes time and money. Two to three years and a billion dollars, this is most likely at the lower limit.

    to twist the language not to interfere with concrete ... all the loud statements about the refusal they are from politicians ... those who are engaged in production understand ... that a quick replacement is impossible ... and if you get confused ... it results in high costs ...
    for reference ... the less technologically advanced and simpler iPhon production still cannot be transferred to the USA ...

        With Erdogan, it will become that NATO will shit all over, without expecting a complete refusal, he himself will refuse production. True, there are many different but.

    As they say: "Our shot has ripened everywhere." The Turks also managed to win back in this direction - to put the Americans in an uncomfortable situation. The latter, taking a calculator and converging debit with credit, sighed heavily, decided to continue cooperation with Turkey on the F-35.

    If the Turks are so proud, it was necessary to tell the Americans: you planned, well now we have approved this date for you. There have been no deliveries since March. But no, the Turks caved in.

    then Turkey could put pressure on the states, it turns out if the Turks refuse to supply then the production of F35 will stop
