Turkey's First Domestic Industrial Product Initiatives

Series Produced the first domestic xnumx.türkiye Car: ANADOL

Known Vehbi Koc and his interest in cars is one of the targets of Turkey was to produce its own cars. When 1946 years at Ford Motor Company's representative in Turkey, was selected, and Vehbi point to a significant adımdı.xnumx years to reach the coach's goal to realize this goal, it held talks with Ford and the work began.

There is something known that both facilities are limited and this study is quite costly. Koç Group tried to find new solutions and easy solutions. In 1963 (Automotive Group President) Bernar Nahum and Rahmi Koc saw a different material used on a dealer vehicle. The material used is 'fiberglass'. Investigating this material, Rahmi Koç went to Israel where the material company was located, because it was affordable. Fiberglass was found to be appropriate but primitive and unremarkable. It was learned that the manufacturer in Israel bought the technology from Reliant company in the UK and Fiberglass materials were used in Reliant cars. On January 1964, Bernar Nahum and Reliant's manager Raymond Wiggin met. Vehbi Koç, Rahmi Koç and Bernar Nahum After visiting Reliant's facilities in England, Tamworth / Staffordshire, the group found it suitable to work with Reliant. The order had the Prime Ministry approval for the project. The group returning to Turkey, Prime Minister's guidance on the Mechanical and Chemical Industry asked for approval. However, MKE's technical staff did not receive approval. Reason being, is an automobile manufactured by a new production system in Turkey has shown unknown. If the approval of the project could not be made that the government change was a great hope.

Vehbi Koç was eager to start the work despite the lack of approval. He wanted to get a prototype and show the prototype to the government officials in Ankara at the earliest opportunity. In principle, the prototype was two-door and the engine, gearbox and differential were taken from Ford. The design of the vehicle belongs to David Ogle. Anadol, the company's chief designer, was designed by Tom Karen.

The new government's Minister of Industry, Mehmet Turgut, went to England in 1965 to inform the prototype of the project. Although the prototype was not fully prepared, test pilots started off and the UK came to Istanbul at 63 hours. 22 December 1965 approved the project for the day. Of course, if the project ends in 10 months and the cost does not exceed 30 thousand liras.

The official application was made at 10 January 1966 and production started. In the meantime, a survey was started for the project name. He had more than two thousand names.

Anadol, which was produced first, consisted of a two-door, 1.2-liter Ford engine.

Ultimately, Vehbi Koç's goal of producing a domestic automobile was realized. In time Anadol 1984 produced more with new models over time took its place in the history of cars. Anadol, which still attracts great attention today, is used in small cities of Anatolia and special days.

The work as a team was started quickly, and we tried to start to complete it within the given time. The engineers involved in the project did not only work during working hours, but even on weekdays and even on weekends. The time was too narrow, so things were divided into groups. Design, engine-transmission, bodywork, suspension and brake, electrical equipment, foundry works, procurement and cost accounts groups.

28 was ready to be presented in October as 'Revolution'. From Eskişehir to Ankara, the car was transported by steam locomotives to the Ankara Railway Factory. Gas was put into the cars for the test drive.

29 On the morning of October the vehicle was brought before the Assembly.

The target is to accomplish the missile project and to fly. The team started to work quickly, but they didn't succeed in any of them. The first trial 10 was carried out in October 1959, but the 'Bernark' type missile that could rise in the 40 meter fell into the sea. The second trial shot was made the same year but the missile could only rise to 15. These works were ridiculed, but the club did not abandon the work. A third attempt was made at 10 February 1960. The two-storey missile, prepared for the third attempt, dropped into the sea after taking off 750 meters and brought failure.

The pieces of the rocket falling down the 200 meter led to the burning of a five-acre field of grass and bushes. Although the negative criticism of this trial, there were supporters.

Missile missiles were fired near 20 in missile construction. However, Marmara-1 was the most successful. Although there were technical failures and bad luck, Marmara-I was the first real missile that pushed the sky. This success also gave hope to those who continue their missile work.

6.First Turkish Aircraft: Vecihi K-VI

Vecihi Hürkuş duy Vecihi… We have heard so many times that name. And who is this Vecihi Hürkuş? Vecihi Hürkuş, who has an important place in the history of Turkish aviation, is the first person to manufacture the first Turkish aircraft in 1924. This plane was called 'Vecihi K-VI'.

The carpenter and his blacksmith friends also supported Vecihi. The team, which started to work together, used domestic materials in all other parts of the aircraft except the engine. However, as engines, they used the engines of the Greek aircraft remaining from the war. 14 28 1925 XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX

Vecihi asked for a technical delegation to obtain a flight certificate. The delegation was created, but the delegation could not issue certificates due to lack of staff and engineers with the knowledge to carry out the controls. The head of the technical delegation 'Vecihi, we can not give you this license, if you trust the plane jump, and save us the tip' on the words jumped to Vecihi plane and made the first flight. Due to international standards, the first test flight was 15 minutes, so we landed on the ground by performing a full 15 minute flight with Vecihi K-VI. Vecihi is a pilot in the Air Force during the flight of the K-VI. Successfully completing the flight, Vecihi was sentenced for unauthorized flights while waiting to be rewarded. Moreover, the person who punished was also the Colonel Muzaffer Bey. Finally, his plane was confiscated not to be given again, and he resigned from the Air Force.

Vecihi, '1923 year, world aviation was at the stage of technical evolution and in scientific research. The discoveries and incomplete training of the necessities of World War I stopped and the possibilities of the aerospace industry to be studied within the principles of education began to be investigated. This progress was a progression in world aviation technology. ' with the words that the aerospace field is not at all left behind proved to everyone.
