"According to the defense news, and some Turkish papers this will be a bridging order until a decision is made at the end of the year between F-35 and Eurofighter." Also it is always neighborly to keep the same amount of F-16 orders with Greece.
ANKARA, Aug 30 (Reuters) - NATO-member Turkey will purchase 30 F16 fighter jets as part of a plan to modernise its military, the chief of the air force said on Wednesday.
"We will purchase 30 F16s by 2011. We are still trying to find the funds but I don't think that will be a problem," Air Force chief General Faruk Comert told reporters during a Victory Day celebration, marking Turkey's war of independence.
