ANKARA --- Turkey wants to upgrade its air defense network. Among the systems Turkey might procure is the Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS), which is offered by MEADS International, a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and MBDA.

Turkish officials believe MEADS can increase the nation's air defense coverage amid security challenges in the Mediterranean region.

The system uses the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 Missile Segment Enhanced missile.
