Sounds like Iran more and more...

Turkey's relationship with NATO is going south fast. I agree: Sell them nothing. Will just wind up in the hands of the Russians. Let them buy the Russian junk and find out for themselves. I foresee an SU-35 buy, perhaps even SU-34's with the idea of being able to hit Greece.

I don't think the SU-57 is going to be exported. Still in troubled development phase, will be plenty expensive when its all said and done. Not being bought in large numbers by Russia, so price per copy will be borderline astronomical. And their new NATO adversaries will be flying F-35's, which will completely outclass his Russian contemporary jets..

It would seem politics/ego will be the sword Erdolan falls on..
