    During Turkey's SSIK meeting that was attended by top civilian and military leaders various decisions were made:


    The MPT-76 will enter serial production

    Big developments with smart munition needed for anti terror efforts. This is mainly UAV launched.

    Decision was made to go ahead with an indigenous air defense system (I assume this HQ-9 alternative HISAR-U to be developed by Aselsan-Roketsan)

    Important development on making the T-129 more indigenous, an engine for it will be developed because there were difficulties exporting it to countries like Pakistan. I predict that Turkey will cooperate with Honeywell the same way they are cooperating for indigenous civilian transport helicopter project.

    Important developments on armed UAV's was made. (Mostly likely they are talking about Bayraktar Tactical UAV)

    We are always waiting, waiting, waiting finally they do something. Much of the news is already known by people like us who are following Turkish Defense Industry, we now have more confirmations. F-35 order is new.

    Another win for the F-35, this is important for the reputation of the F-35 program. A country that plans to order 100+ F-35's is going ahead with its plans. The other developments are important for Turkey's local industry and counter terrorism efforts.
