    Turkey calls off $3 billion T-Loramids

    T-LORAMIDS is the competition where the Chinese FD-2000 was selected over the Patriot, S-300, and Samp-T systems. The Chinese system was cheaper and came with tech transfer. Western countries were infuriated when the Chinese System won, as a result no final deal was made with China and the other competing systems didn't offer tech transfer. Now the whole program is cancelled.

    Turkish companies Roketsan and Aselsan will develop an indigenous system instead. Aselsan and Roketsan have already developed short range (HISAR-A) and medium range air (HISAR-O) air defense systems. The new system will be dubbed HISAR-U. The companies said that they can develop the system without issue.

    We knew this would happen,its better to have our own system.
    I guess,Roketsan and Aselsan together with other Turkish defence companies have gained enough experience/know how to develop an indigenous system.
