149850 TC-STF(Formerly TC-850) Turkish Aerospace Industries S-2E Grumman Serial Number 125C. 
 
On 9-8-2014 Ozcan Ertem provided and update and photo of 148850.  The aircraft was re-registered TC-STF due to all Turkish aircraft having only letter registrations.  Obviously STF is short for "Stoof", made at the suggestion of Ozcan when the change had to be made.

As of April of 2014 Ozcan Ertem of Ankara, Turkey has provided information that this former Turkish military Tracker is currently owned by Turkish Aerospace Industries and is registered as TC-850. The aircraft has been rebuilt with turbo-prop engines and is currently being used to test out the engines.  This is important information provided by Ozcan as I was unaware this airframe still existed, let alone was flyable.  DDJ 5-3-2014
