    Nicely done by Turkey. I wish there was a video to show the impact of the test firing.

    would it be correct to say she's the biggest Turkish warship since the ex-German battlecruiser Goeben?
    (I've heard of the Goeben's escape to Turkey at the onset of WWOne in connection with the Austro-Hungarian Navy which then likely would've engaged the Royal Navy in the Adriatic had the Goeben taken it there instead to Turkey LOL not exactly news)

    Turkey buying Russian S-400s a done deal: Erdogan
    https://www.aa.com.tr/en/turkey/turkey-buying-russian-s-400s-a-done-deal-erdogan/1411168

    The die is cast. It is now in the US court to formally axe the F-35 program from Turkey and deal with the supply chain issues..

    noticed in Russian Internet (https://lj-top.ru/post/andrei_bt/1249184):
    [​IMG]

    an automatic translation of what I quickly retyped (can contain type which I'd hardly notice, LOL)

    "Hava Kuvvetleri Komutanliginim yeni nesil savas ucagi ihtiacini karsilamak uzere Musterek Taarruz Ucagi (F-35) Projesi'ne ortka ulke olarak katilan Turkiye'nin, ucaklarin tesliminde yasayabilecegi engeller alternatifleri gundeme getirdi"

    didn't make sense;
    anyone?
