Over and covert embargoes are fueling the Turkish indigenization drive even further:

MKE Prepares for Firing Test in 76/62mm Sea Cannon Project

In the statement made by Yasin AKDERE on the subject, it was stated that the integration of the 76/62mm naval gun prototype will be started in August and the firing tests will be carried out. AKDERE emphasized that the 76/62mm naval gun has been supplied from a foreign country for 8.2 million Euros, but recently, supply problems have been faced due to the EU embargo. AKDERE said, “R&D is finished in 12 months. We are currently in the assembly phase. We'll make our shots. For $4.7 million, the project will be finished.” said.

MKE General Manager AKDERE also stated that the allied country firm (Italian Leonardo) increased its lobbying activities in Turkey 4-5 months after MKE started the 76/62mm Sea Cannon project, reduced the price of the product to 5.1 million Euros, and even included the training package and ammunition.

AKDERE: “One day my phone rang. I saw that our Minister (Minister of National Defense Hulusi Akar) is calling. Yasin was asked, "How long do you finish this product?" I said, 'We are finishing up to $4.7 million, Mr. Minister.' ‘Even if it is $14.7 million, not 4.7, this project will come to life, you will not take a step back.”
