    Turkey to order four more F-35 fighter jets - Davutoglu



    Jan 7 (Reuters) - Turkey has decided to order four more of Lockheed Martin's F-35 fighter jets in addition to the two it previously ordered, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Wednesday.

    "It is planned that Turkey will buy 100 F-35 warplanes in the project. We previously ordered two in this framework. We have now decided to order four more," Davutoglu said after a meeting of Turkey's Undersecretariat for Defence Industries.

    Why are they ordering the F-35s when they can't even get it to function properly?

    In every project there are problems at first,the F-35 is 90% ready.
    By the time our pilots finished their training,the F-35 will be ready for service.
    150 have been built and are being tested by the US and UK for now.
