BMI's Defence & Security report for Q313 examines Turkey's armed forces; its internal and external security challenges; defence industry and defence procurement activity. BMI believes that Turkey will continue to suffer security challenges for some time in the form of the continued Kurdish nationalist insurgency affecting the country, the wider fallout from the tense security situation in the Middle East at large and the ongoing civil war in neighbouring Syria. Nevertheless, the country's armed forces will continue to play an active role in NATO and meet any future challenges to Turkey's security.

BMI's Defence & Security Report has several key findings. In terms of domestic security, the Kurdish insurgency continues to challenge the country's policymakers and its armed forces. While a military response is seeking to contain and ultimately end this insurgency, a political solution in the form of negotiations could become increasingly important in helping to stop the violence once and for all. At the external level, Turkey continues to suffer the fallout from the deteriorating security situation inside Syria. Ankara will have to tread a delicate path to prevent the crisis from spilling over into the wider Middle East region.

In terms of the Turkish armed forces procurement, the government is under pressure to ensure that the military has the most modern materiel. This can be achieved by continuing to utilise Turkey's position as a trusted recipient of advanced defence hardware from the United States. Finally, the Turkish government will need to assist the growth of the domestic defence industry. This can be best achieved by purchasing indigenous materiel when appropriate, and encouraging continuing research and development efforts.

Since the publication of BMI's last Turkey Defence & Security report, a number of changes have been made. These include:

- Details regarding Turkey's proposed domestic production of Sikorsky's T-70i medium-lift utility helicopter and the contribution of Turkish companies to this end.
- Information relating to Turkish Aerospace Industries' new Anka Medium-Altitude Long Endurance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, and export sales that the company is expected to soon conclude with Egypt for the aircraft.
- The latest status of Turkey's Altay Main Battle Tank initiative and the programme's possible evolution.
- News regarding proposed Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle and fifth-generation Multi-Role Combat Aircraft rolled out at this year's International Defence exhibition in Istanbul.
