The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is the largest and the most expensive multinational development and acquisition program in history. The purpose of this MBA project is to analyze the probable rationale behind Turkey's decision to participate in the JSF program using Graham T. Allison's conceptual models for foreign policy analysis. After providing background information, including a brief history of Turkish military aviation history and the JSF program, and reviewing literature that outlines Allison's rational actor, organizational behavior, and governmental politics models, this thesis analyzes Turkey's decision to participate in the JSF program rather than the Eurofighter program. From a rational actor point of view, each program had its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of Turkey's plausible objectives. The organizational behavior model sheds light on the decision from the perspective of an organization's routines, outputs, and culture.
