President Erdoğan Launches Newly-built Naval Systems

​On August 23, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the handover ceremony of the newly built naval systems of the Turkish Armed Forces in İstanbul. 

Underlining that it is not possible for nations to look their future with confidence unless they are  strong and independent in the field of defense, President Erdoğan said that Turkey’s progress in defense industry has paved the way for many strategic achievements inside and outside borders. 

“Turkey’s defense industry project stock rose from 62 to 700 and the project budget from USD 5.5 billion to over USD 60 billion,” President Erdoğan added. 

The emergency response and diving training boats, new Underwater Assault Team (SAT) boats and speed patrol boats have been delivered to Turkish Armed Forces in the ceremony.
