“Akkuyu NPP will provide experience in the field of nuclear energy”: Turkey plans to create a nuclear submarine

Thanks to the construction of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant in Turkey by Rosatom, the national industry will receive competences sufficient to create its own submarine with a nuclear power plant.

The national nuclear submarine is planned to be built in the medium term

- says SavunmaSanayiST.



As indicated, Ankara intends to enter the “elite” club of countries that own nuclear submarines. Currently, it consists of the USA, Russia, China, Britain, India and France.

According to Navy Lieutenant Colonel Deniz Aytan, the enormous thrust power provided by nuclear energy and the large strike potential based on long-range cruise missiles made the nuclear submarine the most effective strategic weapons over the last 70 years.

After the imminent commissioning of the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant, Turkey will take its place among the countries using nuclear energy. This station will provide experience and knowledge in the field of nuclear energy, which will be in demand in all civil and military sectors in a short time. This is a turning point for the national nuclear submarine program, which is planned to be implemented in the medium term.

- noted the Turkish lieutenant colonel.

He proposes to use the French nuclear submarine Barracuda as a standard, equipping it with ATMACA anti-ship missiles and locally produced GEZGIN missiles. The French-design nuclear submarine attracts the Turkish officer, in particular, with its low noise, optocoupler mast [capable of automatically detecting targets at any time of the day] and effective internal volume, which made it possible to expand the living quarters and made it possible to begin assigning women to the crew.

      Why do the Turks need a nuclear submarine? For the Mediterranean Sea? For the Black Sea? .... Turks, they are Turks...

        It’s not like growing tomatoes...from someone else’s technology at a nuclear power plant to its installation in a submarine - 30-50 years of work...and then only with the presence of a scientific school. This is not theirs, not theirs.

        Yes, the Ottoman Empire is itching for them, but if they build it, then not only the Greeks should strain themselves, but also us.

          Türkiye is seeking to acquire atomic weapons, and this is a very correct approach. World practice has shown that those who have it have no problems with aggressors. At least no one has attacked any power with nuclear weapons!

            Of course, he is correct, the negotiating positions with neighbors will be completely different... both in Syria and in Cyprus, and even in the position of Ukraine and determining the status of Crimea as such. And in Central Asia, again, if someone enlists the support of Turkey in the struggle for borders, then opponents and their allies will think ten times whether it is worth interfering.

              What is this about? If Russia, as the successor to the USSR, declares rights to Central Asia, then! How will Türkiye give Russia nuclear weapons???

                This is about what happened to Armenia-Azerbaijan with the support of Turkey. If tomorrow there is a conflict on the borders of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan or any other country of the former USSR, then a participant in the conflict can enlist the support of Turkey, which will have nuclear weapons. And this takes into account that in NATO Turkey has, in fact, a 2nd army) will there be many people who want to enter into conflict with Turkey?

                Turkey considers Crimea (for reference) to be its own (historically), if the redistribution of borders begins, and in fact it is already underway, then the Turks may remember their former territories (there is already a struggle for the borders of Syria), so there is nothing good for There will be no Russia... if nuclear weapons fall into the hands of the Turks.

            And where did the USSR go then, having nuclear weapons, a navy, an air force, a strategic missile force, and an army? How did nuclear weapons save the USSR? HOW does nuclear weapons help the Russian Federation in the fight against Nazi separatists in the outskirts? The separatists of the outskirts somehow successfully chopped off a part of Russia and nothing came to them for it!

          A significant part of the Ottoman Empire consisted of the territories of modern Egypt and Saudi Arabia. They are not going to submit to the Turks. KSA is richer than Turkey, and Egypt has a population of 20 million. Both states are larger than Turkey in area.

                There's no harm in dreaming! It's bad not to dream! Russia is modestly silent. And he bashfully says that Russia is a regional country. And we were not going to fight with anyone. And we didn't need an army. Why doesn't Russia want to become an Empire? Why, after the Republic of Ingushetia and the USSR, should we have the status of a regional country? Why is the goal not set to become an Empire? Why is the task not set to return to the borders of the USSR or the Republic of Ingushetia? After WW1, the Germans were ashamed of the country and they wanted the greatness of Germany. Aren't we ashamed of the defeat of the USSR? We don't want to live in the Great Country?

        Hunting is worse than captivity. Everyone has it, but the Sultan doesn’t. crying
        Here the question is different:
        The nuclear submarine of the French project attracts the Turkish officer, in particular, with its low noise, optocoupler mast [capable of automatically detecting targets at any time of the day] and effective internal volume,

        Are all the attractiveness factors listed here? Did the officer forget to mention the French Euros?

        Well, I mean the same thing. Only one thought comes to mind: secretly steal a reactor from a nuclear power plant at night and miraculously, with the help of some mother, screw it into the submarine’s body.)))

          And the cooling tower there too. It’s not without reason, oh, it’s not without reason that the nuclear submarine is planned with
          effective internal volume,

          In fact, everything is not so straightforward - the nuclear power plant is the beginning of cooperation with Russia, and Rosatom in particular, in the field of nuclear energy, and then the Indian version (we will miss the stages, including the lease) with the secret plan of the Russian Federation incomprehensible to anyone, but in the end - construction of our own nuclear submarine

      . It is possible to create a nuclear power plant, but making it reliable is much more difficult.

      As stated, Ankara intends enter the “elite” club of countries with nuclear submarines
      "Intent", however, is the very first stage. And the desired result is not always achieved.

        The Turks will succeed!!! The Yankees, who are at most 200 years old, greatly angered the Ottomans with their imperial thinking!!! Therefore, the Turks will develop nuclear weapons and cost submarines, etc... and it will all end with the victorious march of the army of Turan through the European capitals (under the strict guidance of the Freemasons)

        Imagine that the Turks have mastered the aircraft carrier construction program and are already building them for Pakistan!! But how are we going to pay Pakistan??? Although they have nuclear technology, they can help the Turks, and North Korea can share technology, etc. for pennies... the question is different, these Yankees are very carefully monitoring all the maneuvers of the Turks!!!

      Somehow our strategists began to play friendship with potential enemies. When did Türkiye become our friend? This is a country that can always mess up (and even now does it with pleasure). We are creating problems for ourselves in the future. It’s time to thin out our leaders - there are too many outright traders there, for whom the main thing is money, not national interest.
