Turkey delays F-35 order due to lacking in project


Turkey will decide on the date for receiving its very first F-35 fighter jets next year, says the country’s top army procurement body, which is unsatisfied with the development of the project and the costs

Turkey has joined a “concern club” about a U.S.-led F-35 fighter jet development program with the Undersecretariat of Defense Industry (SSM) delaying to an unknown date the very first order for the aircraft it had placed last year.

Turkey, a member of the consortium that also includes Britain, Canada, Australia, Italy, Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands, will reconsider the date for the order of two jets next year, the SSM said in a statement, citing concerns over poor development of the jet’s capacity to maneuver and an increase in costs due to delays in orders by the U.S. and other partners.
