EDAM: Without F-35 fighters, not received due to the acquisition of the S-400 from Russia, the Turkish Air Force is rapidly becoming obsolete

104

The forces lobbying for the refusal by Turkey to deploy Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems are increasing their pressure on the Turkish authorities.


The Istanbul Center for Research in Economics and Foreign Policy (abbreviated in Latin - EDAM) issued a report stating that the Turkish Air Force is "rapidly becoming obsolete" without purchasing American fifth-generation fighters. At the same time, it is recalled that Turkey could not receive the contracted F-35s, since Washington imposed anti-Turkish sanctions due to Ankara's acquisition of the S-400 Triumph air defense system from the Russian Federation.

The report of the said center says that in one or two decades, the Turkish Air Force will face serious problems due to the fact that only 3rd and 4th generation fighters will remain in their armament.

From the report:

F-4 and F-16 aircraft will remain in the Turkish Air Force. They were created during the Cold War. Their resource is either already exhausted, or is about to run out. Fighters of this type will have to be written off, since it is infinitely impossible to upgrade them.

Jan Kazapoglu, head of the EDAM military programs department, said that "Turkey missed the opportunity to re-equip with American F-35 fighters, and the likely adversaries in the region - Greece and Israel - are doing it successfully."



Turkey with the acquisition of the S-400 has come to a state of lagging behind the Greek and Israeli air forces

Research Center Management Representative:

The acquisition of the S-400 air defense system from Russia was a mistake for Turkey. The air defense-based doctrine does not meet Turkish national security requirements.

EDAM states that the S-400 "is characterized by a network architecture, and therefore the complexes in Turkey will not be able to operate with maximum efficiency."

Kazapoglu says that in such a situation, the Turkish authorities "need to abandon the S-400 in order to still get the F-35."

Such statements by the leadership of the aforementioned Istanbul Center suggest that the report prepared by EDAM is a manifestation of the American lobby in order to make a new attempt to disrupt military-technical cooperation between Ankara and Moscow.

          1) Why Turkey F-35?
          Such aircraft are needed against opponents with modern effective radars. Who will Turkey fight with? Countries in Africa and some countries in the Middle East. Turkey will not climb either to Israel or Iran, and if there are conflicts with Greece, they will be purely local, such as two Greek boats met with three Turkish frigates and bravely fled, having received a couple of "warning" bullet holes. That is, they do not need the F-35 for the next couple of decades, and then it will become outdated.
          2) Turkey has shown a powerful scientific potential in military technology.
          They know how to make their own UAVs, and even successfully compete with leading developers. The USA themselves made their F-35 on Turkish components. So they already have some of the F-35 technologies. And they will make their own analogue, purely to show the fact to the Americans. The United States punished itself - lost money, components, quarreled with an ally and convinced him to start competing with the United States

          Let's say not, but there are fighters that are not inferior to the capabilities of fighters of other states. See things right, not magazine covers. Russia builds planes from scratch, and does not buy them under Langlese. hi

            If the Turks, after leaving NATO, have a conflict with the Greeks (and, as a result, with the rest of NATO), and the Greeks do not even have to try very hard to make it appear, the Armenians will not fail to cling to it. How successful is, of course, a question.

                      They adore them, but an alliance with France is more valuable. So they rush between 2 chairs. It seems like they are not supplying weapons, but submarines please, and they will not refuse critical technologies. As with Russia, it seems like there are sanctions, but gas is needed.
                      The Germans are no longer the same. From a military point of view, they are somewhere on the level of Spain. But their economy is advanced.

                      There was always mutual understanding with the Germans and the Turks. In the world wars they were allies, after the war the Turks were given the opportunity to participate in the reconstruction of Germany. Hundreds of thousands of Turks moved to live in Germany in the 60-80s.

                Quite right. In order to return Greece to NATO at that time, the United States had to persuade Turkey for a long time so that Turkey would agree and only after a military coup could they reach an agreement.

            KF-X will be bought from Koreans and will settle down.

          Not unlikely, a second army in NATO, and an active army, not a staff one. The industrial complex is actively developing, although it is borrowed, but it also develops its own. These small countries, obviously, will not go to Turkey than they ended the recent conflict with nothing. NATO will not wage an open war against Turkey under the current conditions. Here is to undermine politically or financially to squeeze, yes, this is their favorite weapon.

      There, the main irritant is Egypt, with the purchase of Rafals and FREMM parity with the Turkish Armed Forces disappears. The Egyptian Army and Navy is technically beginning to outnumber the Turkish.
      They will agree on the F-35, but the delivery is 25-28 years minimum; at the beginning of the 30s TF-X will go into series, at the end of this decade the parity will return, in the middle there will be a drawdown.

        And the real experience of the Turks in the development of combat aircraft is, of course, more than zero, but less than one. "Bayraktar" is certainly good in its class, but even half of the fourth, let alone fifth generation fighter will not pull. And where will they get the motors?

          On the one hand, a lot of loans were issued, the reserves of the Central Bank are empty, the lira is falling and inflation on the other, PPP GDP is growing, exports are increasing. The ruble and the yuan are depreciating their entire existence, this does not interfere with China.

            Turkey recently signed a Free Trade Agreement. After Brexit, this is especially important, since before that, trade relations between Turkey and the World Bank were regulated by a free trade agreement between Turkey and the EU.

            The WB is an important partner, this year Turkey's exports to the WB amounted to about 1/10 of its total exports.

            Despite the global economic crisis related to Covid-19, exports from Turkey have not declined.
            This is facilitated by the rather low exchange rate of the Turkish lira, which fell by almost 40% over the year in relation to the $. Which, on the other hand, is certainly not gut.
            True, in recent times, after personnel changes, it has strengthened somewhat and is now holding at the level of 7,5 lira per dollar, but still it is 25% higher than the rate at the beginning of the year, which still benefits exporters, although it accelerates inflation in the country ... Recent increases in the Central Bank's discount rate can bring the rate to 7 lira per $ 1.

                So they do BAE and RR + Leonardo (I might be wrong) make this plane.

                From an interview at the end of March:
                Director of the defense company TUSAŞ Temel Kotil:

                Today, our company is simultaneously developing 3 aircraft projects, 6 helicopters and 2 UAVs. The most important project is the fifth generation fighter TF-X, which has 3.000 of our employees and the same number of employees from other companies with which we cooperate.

                TF-X will be equipped with artificial intelligence, which will act as a co-pilot. If the pilot loses consciousness, the aircraft will be able to autonomously return to its base.

                As for other companies [British and Italian], with whom we are developing an engine for a 5th generation fighter, our main condition is full rights to the engine. The aircraft must be fully owned by Turkey.

                As a result of the implementation of the TF-X project, we will receive not only a fifth generation fighter, but a large number of experienced aircraft designers.

                A warrior, I think one cannot discount the multibillion-dollar investments from Qatar in the Turkish economy.
                I think these infusions in exchange for a military-political alliance are mutually beneficial. Qatar protected itself from Saudi Arabia and the Arab coalition they created against themselves, and Turkey, thanks to this, easily finances the military projects it needs and can easily send as many letters as the EU wants.

        You are wrong, Turkey for the last 4 years I have been one of the leaders of the country that provides humanitarian assistance to others. In 2019 it was in first place. She gave over 7,5 billion to poor countries. In second place is the United States. A country with economic problems would not do that. Read less envious semi-mystical articles, and instead of that, look at the official data of leading economic publications.
        And by the way, she does all this with practically no minerals and buys 95% from outside, while being included, like the world powers, in the G20. So its economy is much better and more comprehensively developed than the economy of most European and even world oil and gas countries.
        For this reason, they are afraid to let Turkey into the European Union. They understand that if she is given free rein, it will strangle both by the population and influence and after a while by the economies of countries such as France, Austria and even Germany. Small countries are not against Turkey, and the leaders of Europe, for fear of mixing up the axis, do not want to see Turkey there.

          Turkey is not allowed into the EU, not because they are afraid, but because there are rules and conditions under which all countries join the EU. Turkey wants to enter on its own terms, no matter how useful it would be to the EU, but Turkey simply physically cannot fulfill the conditions for accession. hi

    The Turks will even buy Chinese or our fighters. The losers will be the Yankees, because in the long term this is the loss of the Turkish arms market, where Turkish companies are actively fighting to make import substitution in Turkish. That is, to make weapons and ammunition as much as possible at home and by ourselves. The Turks have problems in microelectronics, optics, engines for tanks, but with their assertiveness, they will eventually solve these problems, perhaps with the help of "foreign specialists". Although, it will take many years. An economically stronger China is not even able to create a modern competitive aircraft engine on its own, due to the lack of the necessary technologies and knowledge.

The air defense system is integrated and ensures the flow of information in both directions: the Turks, having secured their air defense, made a huge hole in this information field, plus, of course, they took part of their space out of control; plus give them the F-35 - oh, the embarrassment can come out

        It's nice to read adequate comments. There are so few of them here.
        I completely agree with you. In the place of Ukraine, there could be a Russian Federation, and from this cooperation everyone was more useful

    The Turks now have about 40-50 F16 Block 52, all other utter junk. And they locked their pilots in jails.

    Let's see what the Greeks have new .... 24 Raphales, perhaps the Americans will let them out of turn 24 F35s, and 70 F16s will be upgraded to Block 72. So at the end of next year, air superiority will be, if not now. And until the end of Erdogan, nothing shines for them from Western equipment. And the transition to Russian fighters is impossible, like money - changing the entire infrastructure, retraining pilots, mechanics, new repair plants, buying ammunition ... and when will Russia be able to make a hundred Su 57? And how much will it cost? Where can you get a light, single-engine fighter like a workhorse like the F16? The Turks will not pull this .... they have an economy in the priest and so on.

    The air defense-based doctrine does not meet Turkish national security requirements.

    And it serves it right, but it is quite in line with the Russian financial and security interests of the countries of the region.
    The F-35 is an offensive weapon, and the S-400 is a defensive one.
    The bully Erdogan does not need to be given a new baton, he was given a new shield, so let him sit with him, it will be more whole.

    "According to the head of the military programs department of EDAM, Jan Kazapoglu," Turkey missed the opportunity to re-equip with American F-35 fighters, and the likely adversaries in the region - Greece and Israel - are doing it successfully "..." (c) what This Jan Kozupopolu looks like an F-35 fan. winked Let Turkey buy another S-400 and then the purchases of Greece and Israel will not bother so much.

    My 2 pennies:
    1) It is very doubtful that Turkey, as a NATO member, will want to buy Russian planes. On the other hand, the Luftwaffe flew excellently for 15 years on 2 Mig29 squadrons, which they transferred from the GDR. This means that the problem of friend or foe is solvable
    2) Turkey is very close to Frg. Ever since the 1st mtrovoy war. Almost every 4th German has relatives there. Therefore, if necessary, the Germans will always help the Turks. Both money and iron ...

    In Syria, they do not know the word air defense? This is news! What is it that your Supreme is deceiving everyone?

    There, the F-22, too, "successfully completed the tasks."
    True, which specific and which results are silent.
    Another high-ly-like, and no more.
    Another question in Lob-Khmeimim or Tartus were attacked by F-35s ??
    Shot down at least one unit of the RF Aerospace Forces ??
    The bolt floated there, dully as in a tank.
    And an agreement between the Aerospace Forces and the sons of Israel is also not excluded.
    But there is only one fact - against the Russian systems of motion, there has never been and is not (and is unlikely to be).
    And so, What can you not think of, so that the vassals sell an openly "raw" product, we read it, we know laughing
    Goodbye.

    I have already spoken about Israel. But I will repeat myself. First, the Jews do not touch Russian objects, and the Syrian air defense system is in a "killed" state. Because since 2012, the main thing for them is the ground forces. Secondly, there is a very convenient terrain, for aviation operations - I jumped out from behind the mountain, fired a homing missile and again over the mountain. Thirdly, to ensure the departure, the Jews will use all forces and means. RTR, electronic warfare, satellite and agent intelligence - for the "killed" Syrian air defense, this is a lot. Give an example where the F - 35 was used against a normal air defense system and not in an ideal environment?

    Will not.

    Received money from the Sultan for the air defense system, deprived him of planes and quarreled with mattresses laughing
