Turkey is a powerful country progressing in a rapid way with the investments in recent years. The defence sector is the most strategic sector advancing in a rapid way with the ability to produce products and projects having high competitiveness in international markets.  

The companies that began to produce projects in the 2000s years under the approach of ‘’R&D investments and production at home’’ which was adopted as state policy, are in a position nowadays to produce in critical fields from designing to production, from modernization to modification works. Thanks to these projects Turkey has become a country which can design and produce its own training plane, unmanned aerial vehicles, tank, battleship, armoured land vehicles, helicopter, missile systems, infantry rifles, communication systems, simulations and satellites.
