The First Step For The TF-2000 AAW Frigate

During the latest meeting of the Turkish Defence Industry Executive Committee on 5th January 2012, Aselsan was chosen to develop a Multi-functional Phased Array Radar. This radar will be the main sensor of the TF-2000 air defense warfare frigates Turkish Navy wants to acquire in the next decade.

The Turkish Defence Industry Executive Committee assigned the Undersecretariat For Defense Industries to start, contract negotiations with Aselsan for the first phase of the development of a multi-functional phased array radar.

This is a small but very important step for the TF-2000 AAW frigate project as the design of the ship and its weapons will be  directly shaped by the outcome of the Aselsan’s success of developing the MFPA radar or its failure to do so.
