    TURKEY :- General Electric beats Rolls-Royce to power Turkey’s indigenous fighter jet...

    Turkey’s aerospace authorities have chosen General Electric’s F110 family of engines to power the prototype and an initial batch of what will become Turkey’s first indigenous fighter jet, the TF-X.

    A senior procurement official confirmed the choice, saying that the twin-engine TF-X will be powered by the F110-GE-129 or the F110-GE-132 engine.

    “This is a stopgap solution until we have built our indigenous engine for the TF-X,” the official said.

    Under the deal, the first prototype of the TF-X and an unknown number of initial batches would be powered by the F110 engine.

    Turkey then plans to switch to an engine to be developed by TRMotor, a national engine consortium.

    But some aerospace sources say the F110 may not be the ideal engine for a fifth=generation fighter. “If the Turks go for the GE option, they will have to compromise on the stealth capabilities of the TF-X,” a Paris-based defense specialist said.

    First Turkish sea missile set for mass production
    Turkey's first indigenous sea missile is ready for mass production, the Turkish Defense Industries Presidency (SSB) announced on Friday.

    The Atmaca surface-to-surface guided missile is meant to bolster sea-based deterrence, the SSB said in a statement.

    The agreement for mass production of the missile was signed between the SSB and missile producer Roketsan, it added.

    Under the agreement, the equipment and spare parts for the missile’s fire control system will be produced by leading Turkish defense company Aselsan.

    The Atmaca project was launched to meet the need for naval cruise missiles to be deployed in the Turkish Naval Forces MILGEM national warship program.

    The MILGEM -- Turkey's first indigenous warship program -- was realized with over 65 percent domestic industry participation, with more than 50 domestic companies contributing to the project, according to the SSB.

    I wonder what that means for the Eurosam Turkey was originally looking at for its MEADS requirement?

    more interesting is

    "Two of the people familiar with the discussions said Turkey had floated the idea of offering U.S. technical experts the chance to study any S-400s that it purchased from Russia."

    http://www.dsca.mil/major-arms-sales/turkey-patriot-missile-system-and-related-support-and-equipment

    Turkey has requested the possible sale of four (4) AN/MPQ-65 Radar Sets, four (4) Engagement Control Stations, ten (10) Antenna Mast Groups (AMGs), twenty (20) M903 Launching Stations, eighty (80) Patriot MIM-104E Guidance Enhanced Missiles (GEM-T) missiles with canisters, sixty (60) PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) missiles, and five (5) Electrical Power Plant (EPP) III. Also included with this request are communications equipment, tools and test equipment, range and test programs, support equipment, prime movers, generators, publications and technical documentation, training equipment, spare and repair parts, personnel training, Technical Assistance Field Team (TAFT), U.S. Government and contractor technical, engineering, and logistics support services, Systems Integration and Checkout (SICO), field office support, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The total estimated program cost is $3.5 billion.

    My comment: US army paid close to 6 million dollars per MSE missile. GEM-T missiles are likely a few times cheaper. That's still well under a billion for missiles alone, leaving over 2.5 billion for the four batteries and the support. I do hope for Turkey's sake that includes ALL support throughout the lifespan of those SAM batteries. But somehow I doubt it...

    Uh... The South Koreans also have developed a SAM system based on the S-400.
    Although they basically only use the rocket and launcher technology. I think they use their own electronics.
