International Press Praises Turkey’s Domestic And National Products: They Will Not Stop

International defense media outlets published analysis articles praising Turkey's first unmanned submarine 'Deringöz' and vertical missile launch system 'MİDLAS'. They also mentioned the steps Turkey has taken in UAV and UCAV technology.

Turkey has made great strides in domestic and national production in the defense industry and has managed to attract attention in the international arena with its achievements in this field.

Standing out especially with its success in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs and UCAVs, Turkey has become an important player in the defense industry with its domestic production and development efforts in these technologies.

In addition, Turkey, which has also carried out successful projects in strategically important areas such as national tanks, missile defense systems and naval platforms, plays an important role in international platforms in terms of indigenization and technology transfer in the defense industry.

International defense media outlets are closely following these steps taken by Turkey.

Capable of operating at 600 meters depth and described as “highly capable”, Deringöz was described on the Naval Today website as “underwater research, surveillance, intelligence, mine detection, pipeline detection, port and base protection”.

Naval Today also reported that MIDLAS, the first national vertical missile launch system, successfully launched the HİSAR-D RF missile from Turkey’s first national frigate TCG Istanbul (F-515).

“Thus, for the first time in Turkey, a national air defense platform was tested using a national launch system from a national naval warship,” the publication commented.

Maldives purchases Bayraktar TB2

The US-based defense publication The Defense Post highlighted that the Maldives has received its first TB2 Bayraktar UCAVs to carry out national security and surveillance and reconnaissance operations.

The publication stated that the TB2s will begin operational missions within a week, and suggested that the country plans to protect its 900 thousand square kilometers of exclusive economic zone with this step.

Procured in a $37 million deal, the TB2 unmanned aerial vehicles were imported from Turkey amid tensions between the island nation and India.

According to the publication, India’s sovereignty and rights claims in the region prompted the Maldives to take steps for the urgent procurement of TB2s.
