This is just an effort to serve rightful information that Bangladeshis needs to know about their state institutions.
Bangladesh don’t publish about all its weapon systems because of many reasons. Some things should be kept in secrecy, it’s a strategy to astonishing enemy in battle. In the coming years Bangladesh Armed Forces will induct many game changing weapons. Many weapons and weapons platforms are great diplomatic tool which gives the country some leverage to gain favor in negotiating with other states.

Bangladesh modernizing its armed forces to meet the challenge of the 21st century security situation hence buying modern defense hardware from various countries including turkey
Bangladesh wants TAI Hurkus basic trainer aircraft, TAI T129 ATAK helicopter and Anka or Bayraktar TB2 UAVs.
Government of Bangladesh interest to buy Turkish manufactured defense hardware. Hurkus is a basic trainer aircraft intended for primary pilot training. Bangladesh Army searching for a suitable attack helicopter option whereas turkey’s T129 ATAK attack helicopter is a contender too. And, Bangladesh wants build a handsome fleet of unmanned aerial systems fleet to better monitor adverse weather conditions as it is a disaster prone country. Drones are effective tool to monitor advance flood situation, SAR missions after cyclone, flood and other natural calamities.
Bangladesh Armed Forces sometimes opts for Turkish defense products as those are cheaper than same western ones. Recently turkey developed some decent military equipment like T129 attack helicopter, TAI Anka unmanned aerial vehicle and many armored combat vehicles. Ministry of Defence wants to increase Bangladesh military strength in new level to ensure country’s national security.
Turkey is a Muslim nation which has the most sophisticated military equipment manufacturing technology. Most of the Turkish defense companies obtained their technologies from the west through joint-venture or bought the whole manufacturing license. Recently Ankara pushed for greater defense exports. And, offering those military toys to other Muslim and friendly countries. They have a wide array of highly advanced defense products ranging from land weapons systems, naval warships and submarines and aerial weapons platforms.
Bangladesh wants to diversify her defense products acquisition sources beyond Russia and China. In regards, Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia and Egypt could be viable sources. As another Muslim nation Bangladesh could get some ease to buy from them without any obstacles. Hence Bangladesh’s interests in Turkish TAI Hurkus, T129 ATAK attack helicopter, Anka UAV and other defense hardware is a sign of growing military relations between the nations. We hope these relations will grow more and a strong brotherly relation will be sealed forever.
