While Turkey doesn't view any country in a hostile manner its patience has a limit, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said during a ceremony introducing the first ever Turkish tank Nov.15.

"No one should mistake our good intentions for passivity," Erdoğan said. "Our patience has a limit."
"We took important steps in the last decade," Erdoğan said. "We are now building our rifles and our war boats. We are the third country in the world to build unmanned air vehicles after the United States and Israel."

Turkey’s first ever national tank aimed to break the nation's dependence on other countries, Erdoğan said.

'Altay' is the first tank to ever be designed and built in Turkey.
