Turkey has developed a new radar system for its US-made F-16 fighter jets that will allow them to fire at Israeli targets, Ankara’s Star Gazete reported on Tuesday. The orders to modify the system reportedly came directly from Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s office.

The new radar system – Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) – is a defensive command and control system developed by Turkey’s Military Electronics Industry (ASELSAN) for the nation’s air force and navy. It is slated to replace a similar US version which is in use today.

The US system is comprised of lists of “friends” and “foes.” The system’s settings are designed to prevent pilot error as well, to an extent, disabling the ability to fire at “friendly” targets even by mistake. The US system identified.

  1. Hera! Hear! Excellent idea. Remove Turkey from NATO and give Israel the seat.

  2. Turkey is after the United States the second biggest military in the Nato with the most soldiers after the USA. The Nato give a shit to throw Turkey out and take Israel for it. All the Nato members gives a shit on zionist Israel….and cant loose the second big sized Military inside of the Nato. And tell the Zionist Liebermann, we forbid u to fly over Turkey like before. Be careful Turkey will shot your Military planes down if you fly over Turkey again . 😉

    1. You sure have a lot of fantasy. Don’t you know that the world is fed up with Turkey? Nobody wants Turkey in the EU, and with the moves Turkey just made the idea of Turkey still in the Nato is absurd. You are not to be trusted.

  3. Erdogan in his war of rhetoric against Israel and outreach to Egypt is either nuts or is showing his peacock feathers to the Muslim world in some bizarre bid to relive Nasser’s folly in 1967. I suppose part of the fantasy must be to restore the “glory” of the Ottoman empire. Factor the clear genocidal warnings from Iran and this won’t work out well for anyone. The West’s continued silence is seen as tacit approval, and makes us in collusion as well.
