Turkish army generally considered as in top 10. This is a very achievement if you consider how few money our country spent in military budget. According to military budgets Turkey is at 39th place. The trick is Turkey spent money very carefully. Army is very well balanced. And Turkey never buy the latest most expensive weapons. Instead our country is buying cheaper rather old but proven military systems and then modernising them in home facilities. For example Turkey has M48 and M60 tanks which were modernised. Another is Turkey building F16 fighters in Turkey which is a very good design and far chaeper to buy a new fighter type.

Buying Merkava (or a new MBT) has been canceled because economical difficulties of Turkey. Also Turkey is using Israel electronc equipment in its F-16 fighters.

i heard that Turkey is very succesful in NATO's missions +i heard we have the 10th best air force +because of too many shores and no across-ocean missions_we have a navy full og gunships,fast ships we do not need carriesr because our doctorine is defensive +our land troops are enough for our country,they are well trained soldiers with upgraded G-3s-i heard that we will pass to professional system our officers are very well trained,many countries are calling Turkish officers to their armies as teachers -this is a great link my wiew:Fighting is a part of our culture through history,and we need a strong army because of our location(and we have) it is one of the bests in the world and in top 5 in NATO we also have a great accomphlishments in guerilla warfare
