The network has information about the latest statement of the Minister of Industry and Technology of Turkey Mustafa Varank. According to him, the republic is considering the option of purchasing Russian Su-35 and Su-57 fighters.
At the same time, he still clarified that the priority for the country’s authorities is the development and construction of its own fifth-generation combat aircraft, writes Military Review. The minister said that the issue of buying the Su-35 and Su-57 from Russia was repeatedly raised at meetings of the leaders of the two countries. The heads of state even managed to reach some agreements.
Of course, our priority is primarily the development of Turkey’s own capabilities in the development of fifth-generation fighters. But if Russia has an aircraft that meets our needs and tasks, Turkey will buy it.
