The Turkish Ministry of Defence along with the country's Air Force intends to establish a military electronic system for F-16 fighters.
Today this type of system is being created in only five countries in the world. The electronic combat system, which is the foundation of military electronic systems for fighters, will protect the aircraft during a flight from threats detected by radar and an air defence system.
The system warns the pilot of danger of imminent radar detection in time and automatically neutralises the radar locked on to it.
According to the newspaper, today Turkey is importing this electronic system.
After the development of the system by the Turkish defence industry, the country plans to export it to other countries.
Establishment of military electronic systems for fighter aircraft is part of a government programme aimed at providing the Turkish military with weapons, equipment and an outfit built in the country. Turkey has achieved 54 per cent self-sufficiency in this area.Last Mod: 27 Nisan 2013, 16:08
