downed aircraft


Russian C-400 tied with the downed Turkey Su-24

Turkey’s purchase of the Russian C-400 was associated with the death of the Russian pilot Oleg Peshkov.

Against the background of the start of deliveries of the Russian C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to Turkey, the Telegram community, The Man’s Look in Stripes, unexpectedly made a completely unreasonable conclusion that the purchase of the Russian Triumph C-400 by Turkey could be “compensation” for the Russian Su-24 bomber shot down by the Turkish military.

“For the tragic death of Lieutenant Colonel Peshkov in Syria these days, the Turkish sultan had to apologize. And as compensation, a contract was signed for the supply of C-400 complexes at 2,5 billion dollars. So the feat of one pilot becomes one of the stones in the foundation of Russian history. ”- says the community.

It is not known on what basis such a statement was made, but experts saw in it a provocation directed obviously against the Russian defense ministry.

“To declare that the purchase by Turkey of the Russian C-400, this is a kind of compensation for the downed aircraft, is utter idiocy. Obviously, we are talking about completely different things, but people who even manage to call themselves “officers” come up with another fake, the purpose of which is to provoke ”, - said the analyst

It should be clarified that today, from Russia to Turkey, two An-124 planes were flown, which delivered the Triumph C-400 AIRC to this country, which are expected to be taken on combat duty over the next 1-2 weeks.
