Yup, at this point they're on their way to cover the whole naval sphere.

1. 76mm SRGM, reverse engineered OTO Melara
2. 20mm CIWS, partially based on Phalanx
3. two offerings of missile based CIWS similar to US SeaRAM
4. multiple RWS ranging from 12.7mm to 30mm
5. ASW rocket
6. Lightweight torpedo
7. Heavyweight torpedo
8. The whole HISAR/SiPER system is ready to be navalized; a complete SAM system
9. ATMACA AShM
10. GEZGIN cruise missile, analogous to Tomahawk
11. The ground based S-band and X-band radar can be navalized
12. Similarly the ground based EW system can be too
13. And lastly the Multirole VLS

They've covered pretty much everything at this point
127mm gun also under development.

Turkish Offerings

Tried a bit to make sense of the Turkish defence industry. This list is in no way exhaustive, there are many things that are missing. (like Akkor APS)

It basically lists a specific category and the Turkish offering in that. It also list the status, together with the number of countries it has been exported to.

NOTE
1. Items purely in concept or mock-up phase like Aircraft Carrier have been left regarding their uncertainty.
2. All the items that can't be exported like those under MCTR Regime are omitted in this list.
3. This list intentionally skips obvious systems like ammunition, unguided rockets, ballistic protection, fuzes, etc.
4. Systems primarily for civilian market or used in very small numbers or systems about to retire are omitted despite the possibility of export to keep the list concise.

You have to give credit where it is due.
Notwithstanding, their sh1tty economy, you will appreciate they have good UAV, Altay tank, 5th gen plane prototype, MRAP.
Now some will same they copied or blah blah. But, then what is preventing India from doing the copy-paste act. Accept it we have to nurture our talent and groom to build world class products.
Lots of catch up, which will do provided the current govt remains.

‘The argument is honest copy after paying license fee or dishonest copy without paying license fee. The latter results in an inferior copy.

For your question of why India does not copy paste……. You got the answer that dealing with OEM is much better than with copy masters.

There were two MURAD AESA delivered for testing last year. One for TAI to integrate on F16(for ÖZGÜR modernization program) and one for AKINCI drone to BAYKAR. The radar is to be used by AKINCI, KIZILELMA, F16 ÖZGÜR and ANKA-3.

This is not to be confused with KAAN's radar. KAAN will have a much bigger radar(2000+ T/R) than MURAD AESA. It's radar called BÜRFİS and has not been disclosed to public yet.

Turkey has several GaN based radars in service. But these are mainly naval or land based radars. GaN chip production were made in-house at ASELSAN. At first, the radars were using imported GaN transistors. However, since the end of 2023 ASELSAN has begun producing GaN transistors locally. The radar you see have it's transistors, chips, segments(16x72) all produced by ASELSAN.
