It is for 86 general purpose and fire fighting helicopters. I didn't know Turkey had the technology to do this, will it require any partners? Will it be any cost effective compared to purchase?

To my understanding they do have some relationships with some israeli defense companies that have done work for them before so them developing their own wouldnt be too far fetched. As far as to how cost effective it would be, there is definatly alot of cost in developing your own aircraft both fighters and helicopters.
