Another great article about the role the TB2 played in the 44 day war:

"In the months since hostilities between the two countries ceased some observers have attempted to explain away the TB2's extraordinary effectivity by defects of the Armenian military, whose equipment had supposedly been lacking. However, past engagements over Syria, Libya as well as the one in Nagorno-Karabakh demonstrated an ability to take on many of the integrated air defence systems (IADS) modern nations might muster, having successfully combatted systems such as the S-300PS, Buk-M2, Tor-M2 and Pantsir-S1 even when used in conjunction with electronic warfare (EW) systems like the Avtobaza-M, Repellent-1, Borisoglebsk-2 and Groza-S. The TB2's performance in the face of these systems, designed to completely deny the airforces of even the most advanced nations the ability to function in enemy airspace, must have been a shock not only to their operators, but also to the Russian companies that built them. The fact that a relatively light and inexpensive drone could not only evade but actively search out and destroy such systems while suffering little losses in return marks a new way of conducting warfare that, now that it has been tried and tested in at least three separate conflicts, cannot be reverted."

"We visited Baghdad with the representatives of our defense industry companies. We made important contacts to increase the cooperation between our country and Iraq.
I would like to thank my colleague Muhammed Derraci and his delegation for their sincere hospitality."

Iraq wants domestic production of certain Turkish systems:


Iraq Defense Industry President Derraci: "We agreed on the transfer of technology from Turkey to Iraq. We saw a great understanding from the Turkish side regarding the joint military industry between Iraq and Turkey. Light weapons, ammunition and aircraft tracking systems will be produced in Iraq. A joint memorandum of understanding was also signed for the production of security tracking balloons to monitor the border and terrorist operations of our forces."

Drone fired laser guided missile:


Laser Guided Mini Missile is coming

Roketsan developed and tested by METE, it will be used in UAV-UAV-IDA and will also be fired by a single personnel with a grenade launcher. Our METE missile will hit the target from 12 just like our Olympic Champion archer Mete Gazoz!

Is the laser target designator integrated to this drone or carried by a different platform?

Main points of yesterdays interview with SSB director Ismail Demir:

  • The Americans constantly say this : "We wanted to give the Turks the Patriot, they didn't get the Patriot as a choice and they bought the S-400." What is true is: The conditions they gave us for the Patriot acquisition were conditions that were very difficult for us to accept. They did not give us the conditions we wanted. They drew certain red lines in at the negotiation table, and not a step was taken back from there. That is to say; In peacetime, there were even more severe conditions that you could not even test the system. Then, at a second stage, the offer was requested, the offer was given very, very late and again with advanced conditions. Yes, there was a Patriot offer, but the offer was not acceptable.

  • CAATSA sanctions SSB is an issue that affects me and some of our friends. But since the TAF and other forces are not sanctioned, they can make their own supplies and logistic support. No worries about that.

  • When it is understood that it is not legally possible to remove Turkey unilaterally from the memorandum of understanding signed for the F-35, all the other partners, especially the USA, are leaving the agreement one by one.

  • One more air defense system will arrive on the way to Siper. We currently have 4 air defense systems(Korkut, Sungur, Hisar-A+, Hisar-O+). After 1.5 years, 1 more system will come, it will be 5. After that, the Siper will come, it will be 6. After that, it looks like we're going to go for something with the S-400 capability.

  • "At the moment, you can put about 80 UAV's on a TCG Anadolu type ship, if you force it a little. TCG Anadolu will be put into service in the first quarter of next year. Work on the deployment of UAV will continue after the ship enters service." (If we can work on it uninterruptedly, UAV's will be activated) in a 6-8 month event.

  • The tests of prototypes for Passive Radar Systems (PARS) were successfully carried out.

has the following to say about this:

This is actually important information. Under the Passive Broadcast Detection System (PYAS) Project implemented in cooperation with TÜBiTAK BİLGEM Information Technologies Institute (BTE) Radar Systems Department, Istanbul Medipol University and Gebze University, a unique passive radar system has been developed for HvKK with national resources.
I had included the following information in my previous PYAS News: "According to the TÜBİTAK 2020 Annual Report, PYAS has been placed in 4 locations (the system has 4 passive receivers in a sheltered structure) and the System has been made active. It has been stated that it has been made ready for the Acceptance Tests. Based on this information, I think it would not be wrong to make an assessment that the PYAS Field Acceptance Tests will be held in 2021 and if successful, the acceptance process will be completed in 2021."
In the light of President İsmail DEMİR's statement, "The tests of prototypes developed for Passive Radar Systems were successfully completed at the beginning of this year. The activities required for mass production are currently being carried out," and it can be said that the acceptance process of the prototype PYAS System has been successfully completed and the green light has been given for mass production. Good luck to our HvKK. I wonder if TÜBİTAK BİLGEM will do the mass production or is it a sector company?

Turkey asks U.S. to buy 40 F-16 jets to upgrade Air Force -sources​


WASHINGTON, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Turkey has made a request to the U.S. to buy 40 Lockheed Martin-made F-16 fighter jets and nearly 80 modernization kits for its existing warplanes, as the NATO ally looks to modernize its Air Force after the purchase of F-35 jets fell through, sources familiar with the matter said.

The deal, worth billions, is still working its way through the Foreign Military Sales process which is subject to approval by the U.S. State Department as well as the U.S. Congress which can block deals.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the deal.

If this deal goes through then it seems that Turkey will have an F-16 fleet of 120 F-16V's/Block 70 with another potentially 118 indigenous modernized F-16 'Ozgur' and 29 Block 50+ for a total of 267 F-16's.
