Ankara's response to US sanctions: Turkish Navy will abandon American torpedoes in favor of its own Orka design

38

Turkey has decided to respond to the US sanctions imposed on it. Recall that the sanctions were imposed due to the purchase of the S-400 Triumph air defense system from Russia.


The head of the Defense Industry Directorate Ismail Demir, against whom Washington imposed personal sanctions, said that Turkey would refuse to acquire and use American-made torpedoes in its Navy. It was noted that the Turkish fleet will be gradually transferred to torpedoes manufactured by Turkish companies.

Ismail Demir:

The Defense Procurement Agency will lead a project to develop a light torpedo. It will replace two types of American torpedoes that are in service with our Navy today.

It is reported that the Orka torpedo will be developed. According to preliminary data, the Turkish company Roketsan may act as a designer and manufacturer of Orka on a subcontract basis of the Turkish defense holding Aselsan.

Representatives of Roketsan noted that the torpedo "will protect the Turkish maritime zone, as well as the waters of Turkish interests." The overall project in Turkey is called "Blue Homeland". This is a whole doctrine that applies not only to the Turkish maritime economic zone, but also to the vast waters in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, over which Athens is arguing with Ankara.

In the future, Orka can become a whole family of ammunition, including for use by military patrol aircraft.

      however, in the future, the military power of small countries will finally sink into a kind of ersatz that will look like 3 soldiers against 17 full-fledged ones, and those three are 1 without a horse, the second only with a horse tertii without armor.

      This is just the beginning, others are also starting to think in this area. Yours is cheaper and more reliable, but it is expensive to arm yourself with American weapons at your own expense, there simply will not be enough money. Therefore, many armies are simply deprived of even the opportunity to fight for their interests, since they essentially have to be paid for by the American military-industrial complex.

        Will not give up completely, but like the rest will reduce transactions in dollars. Why do you need dollars when you can pay with your own.)) In principle, it does it, only slowly, others are also not in a hurry.))

    Opensource projects ... The Trojan horse (S-400) is working ... the mattress military-industrial complex is losing orders, hysteria and sanctions against the obstinate Ottomans are growing and expanding, the split in NATO's slender ranks is deeper and deeper.

        Well, France and Germany "obediently stand in the knee-elbow" not because they are afraid of the United States, but because they "go" well at the expense of the US spending on NATO. America spends the lion's share, and they ... they are "peaceful chureks", they do not want to spend much on the military commissar ... "for peace, against weapons" ... Trump asked for this at least gas from America to buy more, so they hated him for it ...

          Well, the Germans traditionally know how to count money - in Germany he himself has already seen almost an anecdote a brick in a toilet cistern. And the American gas price and ours are able to compare. That America is trying to shove the Germans its expensive liquefied - only something is not very clear yet. I think that they can - they will find ways. No wonder America is the birthplace of political cynicism and lawlessness.

      To change something for something, just waste time, otherwise they will peck, matrass, then again, but with the French at least, then Erdogan will give his soul to God, then he will backfire, striped pajamas are prepared even if the stars are placed in the area causal places.

    Maybe the Blue Motherland is, I think, people would not call it blue, on the basis that this color is shamelessly appropriated and spoiled by the well-known "prides" of persons of undetermined nationality. But blue in TR and not only symbolizes protection.

    As I understand it, Turkey is now going to have a very serious leap forward in financing R&D and arms production. The only thing the Americans will achieve is that they will push the last leverage against the Turks.

        The Americans are losing sales markets, the contract with Turkey on the S-400 has fulfilled its political task. More was not required of him.
