C-400 in Turkey


Russia will delay C-400 deliveries to Turkey for at least a month

Erdogan told when will receive C-400.

From Washington to Ankara, threats and demands continue to be heard to stop the participation of the Turkish military in the F-35 program. This is due to the desire of the Turkish leadership to acquire Russian C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made a statement, according to which the C-400 air defense system can be delivered in early July of the 2019 year. He stressed that such a question was discussed by him with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Any negative in this issue is missing. On the other hand, the head of the corporation "Rostec" earlier stated that deliveries of C-400 to Turkey will begin, at best, in two months, i.e. not earlier than August.

“It's all right, I think in two months we will start deliveries. Already advance payments have been made, a loan has been drawn up. Loan money has been spent, equipment has been produced. Plus, we have already completed the training”- said Chemezov in early June.

At the same time, the Turkish president added that Ankara does not intend to refuse a lucrative deal on the supply of C-400 air defense systems. The terms of the contract will be met, despite pressure from Washington.

In the United States, they continue to insist that Russian anti-aircraft missile systems are incompatible with NATO standards.

As for the threat of the United States to cancel the sale of new F-35 aircraft to Turkey and suspend the training of Turkish pilots, then, according to Erdogan, such actions are “ugly”.

Summarizing the above, the Turkish president said that all contradictions with Washington can still be resolved by phone, “at least I want to believe in it,” he concluded.
