In the beginning of the Syrian Civil War, Turkey was importing a huge portion of its military equipment. Now national defense industry accounts for 70% of all military equipments. This is obiviously a real change which should be noticed.
Get real guys, you lost your historical chance in 1914 thanks to Enver Pasha. Consider yourselves lucky you didn't lose Istanbul back then. You don't have nuclear weapons. All you can be is a 3rd rate power, behind 2nd rate powers like Britain, France.
