    Indonesia and S.Korea signed agreement to develop fighter aircraft.
    Indonesia holds 20% and S.Korea 80% of the development program.

    Turkey is interested to join the program, but so far S.Korea has only offered a 30% participation, Turkey wants 40% (equal share as S.Korea) in the consortium.
    Talks are stalling with S.Korea. That's why Turkey initiated a feasibility study which way to go forward:

    Italy (shareholder in Eurofighter) is pushing for years to sell Eurofighter to Turkey, but Turkey is not interested.
    Now they want to sell us sub-systems from Eurofighter:

    Eurofighter consortium itself is forecasting Brazil and Turkey to join hands and come up with fighter-aircraft by 2025, and it is known, that Brazil's Embraer is a company Turkey is negotiating with:

    President Lee of S.Korea was in Turkey the last days, and S.Korea has sent officials from its defense-procurement agency DAPA to Turkey. Visit takes place from 22th to 25th February. Can still be, that they'll raise our demands and offer equal share and we'll end up building the aircrafts with Indonesia-S.Korea.


    If everything completely fails, we'll raise amount of F-35 we are procuring
