Greece is going through the biggest crisis ever due to the greed of the international financial market place and global speculators (Goldman, Lehman etc)
So what is the answer from a military / tactical point of view in terms of procurements?
Well noumero uno is to complete existing procurments successfully:
- Surplus M113 etc
- Surplus Blackhawk helos
a big answer is given simply by the above programs
next is looking to the future:
- F-16 Upgrade
- limited Mirage update
and then we look to Russia for 'bargains' in exchanged for loans and oil
- Club - K (hidden ace that can be planted on every aegean island)
- S300 upgrade
- Iskander ballistic missile
so basically a rought and ready but highly potent upgrade of the armed forces with advanced rocketry / cruise missile / tactical ballistic missile technology will really pump up our armed forces
it is a big question mark whether Turkey will receive the F-35 (or even will exist in its current form in the next 5 years) so we can defer this decision (counter-JSF) until a later stage.. but there will be .. answers available then.. for example the Russian Stealth (PAK-FA) which in 20-40 units would prove to be a lethal adversary.....
