The Turkish Navy is to buy six CASA CN-235 Persuader maritime patrol aircraft (MPAs) to fulfil a naval aviation requirement. The aircraft will be manufactured by Tusas Aircraft Industries, which already has 52 CN-235s on order for the Turkish defence ministry, 48 of which have been delivered. Selection of mission systems for the navy's MPAs has yet to be finalised. The coast guard will also receive three CN-235s.
