As the Turkish defense industry prepares the TCG Anadolu for delivery, which will be Turkey’s largest warship, work on the aircraft carrier will intensify.
İsmail Demir, President of the Presidency of Defense Industries, evaluated various issues on the agenda of the Turkish defense industry.
Reminding that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced his “aircraft carrier” target a few years ago, Demir said that it should be considered as a part of Turkey’s vision of “being a global power.”
Stating that the primary goal is to put the TCG Anadolu vessel into service, Demir said, “It is important that our vessel be put into service as soon as possible.” Later on, studies will be carried out on the deployment of a Bayraktar TB-3 type UAV. In addition to this, a second and more comprehensive vessel, announced by our President, is on the agenda.
