Unless the U.S. doesn't deliver F-35, Turkey to buy U.K's Tempest

Turkey has taken a series of precaution in case Ankara-Washington relations gets worse. Ankara has set a course for what to do if the U.S. sanctions F-35 deliveries to Turkey for buying Russian made S-400 air-defense system.

Following the US Congress & the Defense Department (Pentagon) decision to block F-35 deliveries to
Turkey, Turkey will take these steps:
-As the F-35 production is a multilateral program, Turkey will contact with all of the partners & announce
that Turkey doesn't want to leave from the production program.
-The economic and technical bill to the US, in case Turkey gets removed from the program, will be
announced & the total delay due to Turkey's removal from the program will be shared with the US public.
-It'll be announced that the United States is not a reliable country for arms production and sales.
-It'll be announced that the acquisition, procurement and joint production programmes that Turkey is
currently continuing with the United States may be affected by this.
-According to the agreements signed between Turkey & the United States, if the U.S. does not comply
with the provisions of the contract, Turkey will go to arbitration (International independent Law
Institution).
If the United States does not step back after all these steps and does not withdraw from its decision to
block deliveries the F-35 to Turkey , Turkey will be heading for alternative procurement and joint
production options.

The proposal for participation in the United Kingdom's Tempest fighter jet program, which is confirmed by
the defense circles and the top military sources in Ankara, is considered to be the strongest alternative to
the F-35s. The Government of London has previously given a message that the United Kingdom leans
towards to Turkey's participation in the production of the Tempest fighter jet program.

Tempest fighter jet, which is projected to be developed by the UK's BAE, Rolls-Royce & Italia's
Leonardo, is considred in the aviation terminology as "6th Generation ". Tempest is aimed to be
presented to the service in 2035.
