    In a sign of Turkey's growing economic might and sophistication, the country is increasing its indigenous arms production.
    (...) defense contractor KaleKalip will start manufacturing F135 engines for F-35 Joint Strike Fighters along with Sikorsky helicopters under license from the United States' United Technologies Corporation
    (...)
    KaleKalıp's engine plant will be Turkey's second jet engine manufacturing facility, following Tusas Engine Industries, which produces F-16 fighter jet engines.

    Turkey is now the 8th country to produce carbon-fibre domestically.
    From the new plant will be produced an annual 1.500 tonnes.
    Production will partly go to F-35 engine factory, and to the center fuselage factory at Turkish Aerospace Industries, which is second source of that aircraft part in JSF consortium.
    The initial production of F-35 engines will go to United Technologies Corporation in USA.

    After 2013, TAI (Turkish Aerospace Industries) will produce 100% of the F-35 under license from Lockheed Martin Corporation, as was the case with the F-16 Fighting Falcon program Peace Onyx I and II. In the future, Turkey intends to incorporate several Turkish designed and manufactured electronic systems into the F-35 platform.

    Well, shouldn't he?

    100 years ago, Turkey was "The Poor Man" of Europe.

    Today, they're kicking Serbia's ASS!!

    Turkey had better be carefull in their moves to form closer links with Iran or they could find themselves shut out of the F 35 JV programme.

    "Any firms that sell gasoline to Iran could face retribution including a possible ban from accessing the U.S. financial system or denial of U.S. contracts, according to a document from the U.S. Treasury."
