Turkish media: Greece is threatened by the new Turkish tank

“Greece vs Türkiye! The Indians are terrified: Altay is a powerful tank like the M1 Abrams!”

This is the headline of a publication in the Turkish newspaper Yeni Akit, in which the new domestically produced Altay main battle tank was showcased, but also accompanied by comments showing Greece and India’s awe at its capabilities.

“Turkey’s first domestic and national main battle tank, the Altay, caused panic in Greece and India. The Indian media, which gave wide coverage to the Altay, said the government should form an alliance with Greece against Turkey and support Greece,” writes Yeni Akit.

“Turkey, which has been making steady strides towards its goal of complete independence in the defense industry, continues to create fear. India has now joined forces with Greece, which looks with envy at every defense industry product produced by Turkey,” he wrote. Yeni Akit Turkish.

The Turkish newspaper then quotes an Indian report that says according to the Turks: “In India-based NBT News it was said that Turkey has produced a main battle tank for the first time in its modern history. This means that the Turkish Army and Turkey will use a large number of Altay tanks so far, and Turkey relies on tanks from Western countries.” The construction of this new tank is linked to the expansion of the Turkish president’s military industry, and Greece is exposed to a greater risk than the Altay tank because it has a serious conflict with Turkey. Greece is a friend and strategic ally of India, and it is also believed that Turkey can use its new tank in such a situation, and India can help its friend. ».

The Turkish newspaper continues to try to answer the question of whether India will stand by Greece, or actually help it in the event that Ankara launches an attack. “Turkey’s biggest enemy, Greece, is India’s close friend in the Mediterranean,” Yeni Akit wrote, quoting the Indian newspaper once again. “India and Greece enjoy strong defense cooperation.” Indian warships often stop in Greece during their visits to the Mediterranean. In such a situation, India can come forward and save its friend, Greece, from the main tank (i.e. Altay) of Turkey.
