During the fair, various unmanned land and air vehicles, armoured vehicle platforms, weapon systems, naval systems, electronic systems, ammunition, simulators and logistics support products produced by Turkish defence industry companies will be presented to the participants, especially in Europe.
During the fair, the Official Turkish Delegation will talk with the host country officials and delegations from other countries participating. In the Turkish National Pavilion, information about the Turkish defence industry and advanced technological capabilities will be presented to the exhibitors, especially the Polish military authorities, and cooperation opportunities will be evaluated.
Poland started to show interest in Turkish UAV Bayraktar TB2 long before Russia attacked Ukraine. The export marks a new term for the Turkish defence industry because Poland is the first EU and NATO member country that preferred Turkish UAV over alternatives. Hungary followed Poland’s decision. TB2 UAV and Roketsan’s mini smart munition MAM-L and MAM-C are widely used against Russian systems and are commonly displayed in European media. Many countries raised donation campaigns to procure Bayraktar UAV and to donate it to Ukraine.
Turkiye attended the MSPO in 2013 as a leading country as well.
