    We didn't sell the Turks any drones about 5 or 6 years ago and now they went on to build their own. $%$%

    In the end it worked out for us. The U.S didn't even sell us parts for our Cobra attack helicopters so we had to buy parts on the black market. Now we produce our own helicopter.

    Your government has made many mistakes in the field of defense relations with Turkey, we wanted to get technology transfer for the M270 MLRS but you guys didn't give it, instead we got it from China for a cheaper price, you lost the air defence system competition against China because of technology transfer and now we are building our own after pressure not to to buy from China. In the future the only deals U.S companies will get with Turkey are for engines, in 10 years even that will not exist.

    Our whole defense industry came to existence when US placed sanctions on us when we invaded Cyprus....Maybe we would have no defense industry if US hadn't placed the sanctions. :)

    So, i wouldn't say they have made a mistake (from our POV).
