Turkey bought ten AH-1W SuperCobras in the early 1990s, and supplemented with 32 ex-US Army AH-1 Cobras.[27] The AH-1s have been used against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) rebels.[28] In late 2011, Turkey requested the purchase of three AH-1Ws from the USMC inventory.[29][30]

On May 13, 2016, PKK militants shot down a Turkish Army AH-1W SuperCobra using a 9K38 Igla (SA-18 Grouse) MANPADS. In the published video, the missile severed the tail section from the rest of the helicopter, causing it to spin, fragment in midair and crash, killing the two pilots onboard. The Turkish government first claimed that it fell due to technical failure then it became obvious that it was shot down'.[31]
