On Saturday, Hungarian media praised the effectiveness of the new generation of Turkish drones, which "changed the course of the war in Libya and proved itself in Syria."
Journalist David Laszlo wrote in the local newspaper, "Magyar Namzdat", that Turkey has become independent today in the defense industries sector thanks to its investments in this field.
Laszlo stressed that Turkey changed the course of the war in Libya by supporting the legitimate government recognized by the United Nations, noting that Turkish weapons proved their worth on the ground.
He added that Turkey has developed the technology of its independent defense industries, rather than enriching other countries.
He said, "Turkey is making its fighter, its aircraft carrier, and its armored vehicles, and its drones are doing a very good job."
And the Hungarian newspaper reported the opinion of the researcher on Turkish affairs, Zoltan Igarishi, saying that "Turkey was completely dependent on the United States in the technology of defense industries after joining NATO in 1952, the beginning of the Cold War."
Igarishi explained that after the United States imposed a blockade on Turkey because of the peace process it implemented on the island of Cyprus in 1974, Ankara went to invest in its defense industries.
He noted that Turkey has had successes in giant projects in the defense industries during the past decade, such as the Altai tank, storm cannon, and helicopter ATAK "T-29".
The Hungarian researcher added that Turkey plans to land its aircraft carrier to the sea during the current year.
He said that Turkey now exports its technology in the defense industries to some countries with which it has good relations.
He indicated that the volume of Turkish exports from defense industries increased by 170 percent between 2014 and 2018, and the value of weapons exported last year amounted to 2.7 billion dollars.
Igarishi stressed that Hungary is closely interested in the Turkish armored "Dragon" (Ejder Yalçın).
