Turkey refused to buy missile defense components abroad

20
Ankara canceled an international tender for the supply of components for a national missile defense system worth $ 3,4 billion, the government decided to focus on the domestic project, reports RIA News Post press service of the Turkish Prime Minister.




The agency recalls that the Chinese company CPMIEC won the tender for the supply of missile defense components to Turkey in 2013, requesting $ 3,4 billion for their products.

“It was decided that this tender will be canceled. This decision was signed by the Prime Minister (Ahmet Davutoglu) this week, ”a spokesman said.

"Turkey intends to create its own project to build a missile defense system," the press service explained.

The victory of the Chinese in the tender was due not only to the low price, but to the proposal to produce part of the missile systems in Turkey with the subsequent transfer of technology. However, the parties could not finally agree on the degree of participation of Turkish specialists in production. In addition, Ankara was subjected to strong pressure from the Allies for choosing the Chinese option.

      The political component won. NATO partners were not offended. When developing a "proprietary" missile defense, you can attract the Chinese.

        What nonsense!
        Well, does anyone really take seriously the kindergarten statements of the Ottomans that they will be able to independently create a missile defense system?

            They are late, dear, with a forecast - they have already set up and are already working at NATO bases, where Turkish representatives are not even allowed to enter.

          They talk about this - don’t waste money on utopia. If for amer missile defense systems in Europe functionally just advanced medium-range missiles (as missile defense they are only for European deer (inhabitants), then for Turkey such functionality is not needed. Considering that Turkey has not yet created a national air defense system even close in characteristics to the C300 and passionately if they want technology (at least Chinese), then they are up to a missile defense like to the moon (on foot).

      The Turks themselves seem to be confused, as they should be covered by a NATO member, and you want to play your game, but here they can’t buy anything from overseas from China only from the United States.

        This is repeated "blackmail" by Zrdogan NATO. So he threatened to buy missile defense in the Russian Federation if he was not localized for the production of components on his territory, and now uses this topic to ensure that in Syria the NSS and others like him would support his interests.

    I immediately recall the Turkish tender for long-range air defense systems. It was carried out 4 and 5 times and canceled. No one wanted to completely transfer rocket technology.

    I will, then I will not, like small children, honestly. As if they don’t know that if they choose not a NATO country, the Americans will raise it.

      And where is Greece right now? Can I tell you ... in such a deep pope that my mother does not cry ... my mother does not cry, but twice because the echo from this same priest is where Greece is now ..! Americans except to crush Russia and China with China they won’t be able to ... they can break the rest within a year or two, at first they will kick out of NATO and then it will rush ... the orange-gray-brown banana and so on. nevertheless, there Russians still remained in spirit and she was right next to Russia!

    “Turkey intends to create its own project to build a missile defense system”

    Indeed, it may have been banned. After all, they have how: He gave the word - he took the word back.

    And what, that economically it is now the most unbearable ... Deliveries when our complexes were? And nothing. And the economy is not only Greece in this position. And we are talking about the "hai" of Americans in the country of NATO, if she did not buy from them. And Greece bought and swallowed nothing

    They are already developing their tactical ones, so they can. Of course not at the level of ours, but they can

    Ankara was subjected to strong pressure from the Allies for choosing the Chinese version.

    Obviously, this is the main reason for the cancellation of the tender. Because
    Turkey intends to create its own project to build a missile defense system

    too long and painstaking lesson, which will take not one or even three years.

    Turkey launched its imperial project. Turkey does not need missile defense. Turkey needs modern technology.

      Turkey needs modern technology.

      And we need more than the weapon itself. During the fighting in Cyprus, the Turkish army very much felt what a technological blockade was from its NATO allies.
      After familiarizing myself with the Turkish military-industrial complex (almost all military factories and several military bases traveled 5 years ago), I personally got the impression that Turkey was left in NATO only to fulfill orders for the production of weapons and components for these countries. At least half of Turkey’s defense industry works for other NATO countries and for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
