It is normal we would have interest in NATO hardwares, be it Turkey's or anybody else's.
And it is a wonder how people assume Russia is nothing after breakup of USSR. I'd advise them to study carefully. Russia today is more powerful and more capable than USSR ever was.
We destroyed Georgia's fighting capability within a mere five days using our lower grade soldiers, Georgia who was heavily armed by hardwares supplied by Turks/NATO. A lesson for those dreaming of Russian "outdated hardwares".
But Kazakhstan has almost no home-made arms at all to get interested in western ones. But they are trying to copy Russian obsolete Grad here:
Nice try though...

Yes, USSR was a very large nation. We achieved many great things together. In the end, we had to part our ways. But what do we see today?
Russia is more economically robust than any of the former USSR states as far as I know. Russia is the largest producer of energy resources in the world. Recently, Russia came up with strides in missile technology as well as naval warfare. There are many other fields in which Russia made recent innovative strides. etc. In Russia, it is commonly believed that we "let loose of the laggards" when we separated.
The bold part is the joke of the day.

Keep laughing, Nevermind but Don't post such things before reading what I have mentioned in previous pages. I mean Don't make me to type same things again and again cause of putting same things on a lazy members head. Just check previous pages to get it...
BTW, It isn't the actual point wheather Russia really need know-how of Cobra or any other armoured vehicles. They have industry enough to develop such things but not on par with NATO standarts cause of the specifications I have typed above(At least not now, They need time). Russia don't have an armoured vehicle which is on par with Otokar Cobra or BMC Vuran. (That's why, They order too many NATO products such as Italian IVECO armoured vehicles to increase their abilities...etc ) That doesn't mean Russia can't develop but Russia wants to enjoy with state of art NATO technologies instead of repeating himself with Soviet based systems...
Secondly, The Turkish missile you quoted is the first 2,75 inch semi active laser and MEMS guided missile that passed into serial production phase in all WORLD.
About the sentences You point them like "Turkey is as advanced as Japan or Russia". It is about the points of your comprehension ability. I never mentioned such a thing in this thread or any other threads I opened in PDF. I mean It is your problem, not mine. What I mean with my threads are Turkey is as advanced as proceeding her own designs instead of ordering such toys from abroad at this moment. It has nothing to do with measure your d@ck with Russia or Japan. That's what I mean for the people who is able to get some basic skills of comprehension technics...
