Turkey announces the purchase of the largest batch of Russian S-400 Triumph for billions of dollars

Turkey announced the purchase of another batch of Russian S-400 air defense / missile defense systems.

Despite the emergence of information that the Russian S-400 Triumph air defense systems acquired by Turkey are “bad”, that these air defense and missile defense systems are significantly worse than the American Patriot, and that they are extremely expensive, it became known that Ankara and Moscow reached an agreement to sign a contract for the delivery to Turkey of another major batch of Russian air defense / missile defense systems.

“Negotiations on Turkey’s acquisition of the next C-400 regiment have reached an acceptable level. The signing of the agreement has almost been reached. After agreeing on the final details, we will sign an agreement regarding co-production, or co-production of certain elements in Turkey ”- Ismail Demir, the head of the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate, said in an interview with Bloomberg.

It should be clarified that, according to experts, the purchase of the next large batch of Russian S-400 Triumph air defense / missile defense systems indicates that Turkey is extremely interested in Russian weapons, and, obviously, today Ankara has no other suppliers of ultra-long-range anti-aircraft weapons defense.

On the other hand, today there is a lot of questions about the fact whether Turkey will be allowed to assemble Russian C-400, since no official statements have been made by Russia on this subject.
