Abstract
Turkey established a new defense policy in 1985 designed to build an indigenous defense industrial infrastructure. The policy has been in effect for nearly ten years. This study examines the new defense policy to determine whether it has been effective in its stated purposes of modernizing the Turkish Armed Forces and developing of a civilian infrastructure to support the armed forces. The method used is a detailed survey of the armored combat vehicle project, the largest project currently managed by the government organization put in place with the policy. The study shows that the policy creates the desired infrastructure, but that the current economic conditions inside Turkey make it difficult for Turkey to remain with the policy due to the high initial investment cost.
