For example over the next 5 years, Turkey will complete key projects such as ALTAY Tanks, the MİLGEM Corvette, ATAK Helicopters, HÜRKUŞ Training Aircraft, ANKA Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, Low and Middle Altitude Air Defense Missile Systems and the Radar Observation Satellite.

In the land sector Turkey is already largely self-sufficient, producing a wide range of tracked and wheeled vehicles, some of which are exported abroad. In the naval sector, Turkey has an ambition programme to build up to 100 hulls, some of which have been commissioned.

Turkey has tripled its economy over the last decade, while its exports have quadrupled

Many economists forecast that over the next decade Turkey’s growth will match or exceed that of any country except China and India.

SOM has been added to candidate-weapons for F-35.

All candidate-weapons are US built except one Norwegian and Turkish one.
Even if the other program-partners don't choose our Cruise-Missile it is the missile Turkey will use for its F-35s.
