There is a strong participation from the Turkish defence industry at the ongoing Defence and Security exhibition by 32 companies under the leadership of Presidency of Defense Industry (SSB) and the Defense and Aviation Industry Exporters Union (SSI).

An official Turkish delegation is also at the show to promote the partnerships with Asian countries. Turkish Aerospace is one of the giants in the Turkish defence industry and is looking to further improve on its successes in the region with its participation at the ongoing Defence and Security exhibition.

The Turkish air-framer will look to strengthen recent business partnerships and is also seeking to further business opportunities with potential Asian customers not only in Thailand but also in Pakistan, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia as well.

The T129 ATAK Multirole Combat Helicopter and ANKA Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) are expected to attract strong interest at the show. Deliveries of the T129 ATAK continue and the 53rd helicopter was handed to the Turkish land forces in November. The maiden flight of a new T129 FAZ-2 helicopter, which is an upgraded version of the ATAK took place in November.
