someone give me a quick rundown on turkey as a military power. when and how did they develop the military industrial capacity to produce the bayraktar? the only thing i've heard about them in the past 5-10 years is shooting kurdish rebels and sometimes isis.

    Its been a modern, developed, middle income countries since the 1950s, and has fully industrialized since the late 90s. This is kind of like asking how Israel can be a hub for software development.
    Militarily, they are the bottom tier of competence for NATO armies, so better than every other army in the world except for Israel, Mexico, China, India, and maybe Brazil. They have the largest standing army in Europe but that doesn't mean much.

          Lol no. Russia has the world’s second largest air force. So even if you think the air force makes the diff it’s not a size question - it’s a quality question (Russia’s is shit)

        Japan still has only a minimal defensive capacity mostly limited to in-country civilian protection and sea defense.
        Russia, well, I would have said it was stronger than Turkey before Ukraine, but not anymore

      word is that NATO has been relying on turkey for airlift capacity. i think turkey has been one of the few NATO members actually keeping to defense spending by GDP$ guidelines. which kind of makes since since erdogan needs his military to stay in power and fend off syrian incursions/muslim extremists/russia. i don't like turkey as a country, i don't like their people except for some of their women, and i especially don't like erdogan. but i think the world has been underestimating them militarily, since they're the one sold roadblock between yuros and ISIS/syria.

    Turkey is stupid, but Anna Kendrick is hot and I'd like to know her in the biblical sense if you know what I mean.

    Greece will prevail militarily over Turkey

      How so? Greece doesn't even have the industrial capacity to produce APCs while Turkey produces most of its equipment from APCs to missiles

    Brother is a helicopter pilot, turkish military occasionally sends people over to US to learn how to fly. He says he has to spray them with AXE because they all refuse to bathe. Also had an interesting flight where one of them tried to convince him that Greeks and garden gnomes don’t technically qualify as people

    The Predator has been around for almost 30 years. Other countries have caught up. Even Iran has drones that are similar in capability. The Bayraktar is only special because the Turks figured out how to make it with easily sourced commercial parts. Propellor driven remote operated drones are old news. Supersonic and autonomous drones are cutting edge.

    Turkey has been manufacturing their own F-16s since the mid 1980s.
