Love’em or hate’em… Turkey has second largest military in NATO behind the US. Western European nations, you need to consider that fact, and adjust accordingly. Having a large military and all the cutting edge equipment doesn’t necessarily equate to actually having a solid fighting force, as is evidenced by Saudi Arabia’s well outfitted, yet impotent military. It’s safe to assume, after watching this video of Turkish air assets getting it done, that these guys do know what they’re doing. Plus, they have already proven that they are not afraid to blast encroaching Russian aircraft out of the sky, which is more than we can say for some other NATO states.
