This part from the same article made me giggle like a school girl...
In addition to the 700 people at the same time bulunabileeg amphibious force of 400 thousand people in total vessels, marine landing craft can carry 8.
Google Translate, you're drunk...go home.  About 2 years ago I would have cheered this news and been excited by the thought of Turkey buying the F-35B and MV-22.  Now?  With Erdogan going crazy, the country tilting toward fundamentalist Islam and away from modernity, I find myself still wanting them to buy those aircraft...only because I know it will hamper their efforts.

Of course this is another piece in the regional power play that's going to come to a head soon.

We have Turkey vs. Saudi Arabia/GCC vs Iran.  All three want to be top dog and all three are gearing for war.

When that shit kicks off the suffering will be great as will the loss of life.

I don't care.  Pass the popcorn.
