Abstract : National security depends upon many factors, like the morale of a country's soldiers, the character and skill of its political and military leaders, its geographic position relative to other countries etc. But national security also depend upon economic factors, which are variously interpreted and defined. Most writers who stress the importance of economic factors are referring to the economic strength of the nation, as contrasted with its military forces. When a country like Turkey, which has one of the most important strategic location in the middle east, is trying to accomplish its defense objectives as a NATO allied country with limited resources, it must use these resources as effectively as possible in order to select defense systems. The aim of this paper is to select the best force structure by using cost-benefit analysis. Each candidate force structure includes a different type of new frigate for the Turkish Destroyer Fleet. Keywords: Measurement of effectiveness.
