Eurasian Times: Turkish companies continue to ship parts for F-35 fighters to US despite sanctions

In foreign media, materials appeared on the US sanctions imposed on Turkey. For example, the Eurasian Times, citing the head of the Turkish defense industry directorate, Ismail Demir, reports that Turkish companies continue to fulfill their obligations to American partners in the military industry, despite the sanctions.


The report says that Turkish companies continue to supply components for American-made F-35 fighters, fulfilling previously concluded contracts with Lockheed Martin.

Eurasian Times quoting Ismail Demir:

What they (the US authorities) did with the F-35 was even in violation of their own legislation. But our legal work continues. Turkey has always fulfilled its obligations as a partner of the program. Turkish companies are currently continuing to manufacture parts for F-35 fighters and deliver them to the United States.

Recall that the United States imposed several packages of sanctions against Turkey for the acquisition of the S-400 Triumph air defense system from Russia. Initially, Turkey was withdrawn from the joint program for the creation of the F-35, banning the transfer of already assembled fighters to it, and a few days ago, sanctions were introduced against Demir and the Directorate headed by him. In particular, their accounts were frozen and a ban was introduced on lending to Turkish companies from the military-industrial complex.

But if the above reports are to be believed, Lockheed Martin continues to use Turkish-made parts to build fifth generation fighters.

Ismail Demir noted that "the sanctions did not affect current projects." In the United States, these statements have not yet been officially commented on.

    Well, it's the states!
    And not FROM the states.
    As an example, our RD-180s have been delivered and continue.
    By sabzh:
    They supply what the states do not do at home. As soon as they deem it necessary, they will do it and from this moment on - that's it!

      Turkey is unable to disobey its overseas godfathers. They supply them as cute. Only they will not be supplied with the F-35 at the request of Israel. Well, it's okay, as it were. Let it be so.

        Like Russia with the RD-180. Is it so?

        Turkey will continue to supply parts for the F-35 in hopes of the overlord's mercy.

        It turns out that the overseas plowmen were not at all against Turkey's purchase of the S-400?

          No, not like that. They are doing the right thing on the F-35, wrong on the S-400 (opinion of the plowmen from the USA)

            It's not about "right" or "wrong", it's about "disobeying".
            The Americans literally directly forbade the Turks to buy the S-400, but the Turks bought it. Disobeyed? Yes.
            And for some reason they cannot disobey the details for the F-35.
            Why?
            It turns out that either in the first case the Americans were not against the purchase of the S-400 by the Turks, or in the second case it was not a matter of "disobeying", but of something else.

              Or they don't want to. Launching a conveyor for such details costs a lot of money. And the investment must be recouped. This is most likely a commercial interest, since such parts are not produced by Zhiguli. There 1 bolt costs a thousand bucks. 1 bolt shipped from the USA costs like a ton of tomato shipped to Russia.
              That is the reason.

          Well, the last thing they asked was to hand over the S-400 to the United States, but the Turks refused. Apparently there was some kind of agreement, but the Turks deceived them and sanctions went through the Turkish military-industrial complex.

    Ha, ha ... the United States will always do everything only in its favor. And all the rest for them ... well, only those who are useful or not. The Turks continue to cooperate, despite the sanctions, but until the F-35 is received, Russia continues to supply titanium parts and rocket engines, receiving more and more stringent sanctions in return for its "obstinacy" ...

    The neo-colonial policy of the Americans extends even to their seemingly allies, even in such a seemingly delicate topic as the production of weapons.
    Other allies of the Americans have a lesson, although there are essentially no allies, only colonies!

    it was high time to do it, as soon as the second wave of sanctions began it was necessary to click on the nose. but no, THERE are villas, yachts and children being held hostage.
    so we continue to humiliate ourselves and subserviently offer friendship to jackals. But unlike THESE, you can really be friends with ordinary jackals

      The USA did not return the money for the purchased F35 and the Turks do not ask for it back. This is the main indicator.

        And the Turks need an airplane, like the F35V for their UDK, and there is simply nowhere to take another

          Today Turkey and the United States have established a joint working group on the S-400, and technical negotiations have begun.

            I had no doubt that it would not last very long
            Along the way, the Turks will increase the order for the f-35, for the f-35v there will be an additional one in any case.

                S-400, It's not cheap, you need to put it somewhere, you can't just mothball
                Perhaps they will be transferred under joint control in order to exclude the possibility of joint tests.
                However, they can also mothball.

                  It's a bargaining question. And so yes: joint control, conservation, dismantling, sale to a third party with the approval of Russia. (For example, Azerbaijan)

    A contract is a contract. They do not want to lose money, which means they will fulfill their part of the contract.

    Does the Sultan really need these F-35s? It's not just an airplane, but a snitch of the 99th leveled.
    Go all data, from the pressure in the wheels to the parameters of the flight, regularly sends to Lockheed Martin, according to the laid down program.
