Details of the first use of the Russian S-400 by the Turkish military

For the first time, the Turkish Foreign Minister announced about the S-400 air defense systems purchased from Russia.

The head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Mevlut Cavusoglu, for the first time raised the issue of the use by the Turkish military of the S-400 complexes acquired from Russia. Such a statement was made for the first time since March of this year, and the statement itself was very important, especially against the background of the emerging data on the combat use of these complexes, tests against the F-35 and F-22, etc.

As follows from the words of the Turkish Foreign Minister, contrary to all available information, the complexes have not yet been accepted for combat duty and, most likely, have not even been deployed in the country yet.

Earlier, the head of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, openly announced that the Russian complexes would be put into service in March of this year, however, over the past six months, work in this direction has not even moved.

Judging by the fact that the complexes were neither deployed nor adopted by Turkey, it is logical to assume that they could not be used against American combat aircraft, although the route of their flight ran through the airspace of the Black Sea, where these complexes were seen in the last time.
