USA: Turkey buying C-400 is a problem for NATO

33
Ankara’s decision to purchase C-400 anti-aircraft systems from Russia is a problem RIA News Statement by US Permanent Representative to NATO Kay Hutchison.




This caused concern in NATO, since these systems are incompatible with the systems used by the alliance,
said Hutchison in an interview with the Washington Post.

At the same time, she stressed several times that “Turkey is a key partner of the United States,” and Washington is interested in working with her.

The United States "does not want Turkey to move closer to Russia," the permanent representative noted.

It is not in our interest. But it is also not in the interests of Turkey,
she added.

Recall, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan 12 of September reported that Ankara has signed an agreement with Moscow on the acquisition of C-400 systems, the deposit has already been made. This information was confirmed by Vladimir Kozhin, presidential aide on military-technical cooperation. According to him, the contract has been signed and is being prepared for execution. Later, the Deputy Head of the Secretariat of the Defense Industry of Turkey, Ismail Demir, said that the supply of C-400 systems to Turkey will begin within two years.

    Oh, the S-300 Greeks were able to include in the general air defense system and these can. It is immediately different that Turkey, with their S-400, at any moment can become that "hole" through which our missiles can fly. But it seems to me that Turkey S-400 WILL NOT BUY from us. For her, all this is an occasion to knock out as many concessions from the USA as possible, and most importantly to reduce the price of buying such American systems.

      100% I support. Moreover, we, as it were, also do not show much zeal for the sale to the Turks With 400. They will buy. Well they will buy. They will not buy, well, chickenpox will be in their hotel pool. laughing

      she added.

      Turks go into politics. Only they know what is in their interest!
      Russia should not miss the chance to turn Turkey away from NATO ...
      After Russia, Turkey has the most powerful army in Europe!

        STOP. You probably don’t know, but Ukraine has the most "strong army of Europe" ...
        And what about Turkey, so their "Syrian campaign" showed that it is not enough to have a large number and, in principle, not poor equipment, we must also be able to use all this effectively

          Ankara’s decision to purchase S-400 anti-aircraft systems from Russia is a problem

          Any decision of any country that does not correspond to the line of the Central Committee of Matrasia is a problem.

        404 declares that it has the most powerful army in Europe, Plotnitsky declares that they are the second army in strength in Europe, and then we are 3-4 positions with the Sultan?

      that’s exactly what makes the United States more accommodating. when the Saudis announced the S-400, the states immediately approved all the contracts, but first their legislators set up a bagpipe about the undesirability of transferring some systems to the Saudis

    The Turks will somehow decide for themselves what is in their interests! "Incompatible" - and non-financial, such a monopoly on the supply of arms to the allies of the "exceptional", and you will not dig!

    the interests of Turkey, apparently now it is the states that determine it, and not Turkey itself ... the "exceptional" ones ... wink

    I remember 3-4 years ago, Turkey was going to buy the S-300 from us, but it caved in under US pressure and bought the Chinese, citing a lower price. Let's see what happens now.

      No, you're wrong. Turkey never bought the HQ-9 (a copy of the Russian S-300 air defense system), the Americans bent the Turks and they did not sign the contract, although the Chinese promised to transfer technology and build a plant for the production of air defense systems. Now a similar situation may arise, although the Turks have given the advance payment, I don’t know how it is under the terms of the contract, but usually the advance is not returned.

    It’s not a question of whether the S-400 is compatible or not compatible with the NATO missile defense, but if the Turks put the S-400 on combat duty, then Turkish airspace will simply be closed for US and NATO aviation at any time. afraid of this, as another step towards independence of Turkey, and everything else BLA-BLA-BLA from the repertoire of "shadow on the fence"!

    The sale of S-400 systems by Russia is more a political step than a serious military aspect .... here comes someone: Turks - they want to prove something to the states, and this is obvious ... well, Russia right here shows that it is ready to get closer to Turkey in some moment...

    --- "This caused alarm in NATO, because these systems are incompatible with the systems that the alliance uses" --- What kind of compatibility are we talking about and what is the compatibility with the systems that the alliance uses. Things should be called directly by their proper names. Buying the perfect (no chapel for perfection) weapons in its class from Russia, an adversary of NATO. Yes, the mattresses, Ankara lost her arms and spat on your obsessive recommendations.

    Yeah! Build a c400 having received money for them and then the political situation will change and we will leave it to ourselves. Well, the deposit can be returned. But it will be later and not now. As with the Iranian c300 it turned out.

    Well, if you can sell to India, China and Saudi Arabia, then why not sell to Turkey ?! I don’t think that the Turks, having acquired the "Grumble", will become dirty in any way. On the contrary, this can thoroughly strengthen the position of the Russian Federation in the Middle East. In the future, there are plans that will greatly affect the whole situation, not only in BV, but also in Europe and the USA. Many here are "dirty" expressed about Turkey, I want to pump up the brain muscles and not strain the ligaments below the waist.

      The main thing is that the SGA does not like Russia. So that she calls the things that the SGA does in her own names. Tuption or SGA - on the drum. You must behave with dignity, without revealing vice and humiliation ...

    since these systems are incompatible with those systems that the alliance uses,

    That is, in case of emergency it will not be possible to disconnect? And they are worried that the money will go to Russia, and not to the American military-industrial complex.

    Of course, Turkish S-400s will be a big problem for the USA and NATO! Loss of control in the airspace of Turkey and the opportunity to bomb Turkey with impunity if necessary. Turks will be able to shoot down NATO planes and missiles with the S-400 in case of problems.

    How does the US state know what is in the interest of Turkey and what is not. The question, of course, is rhetorical, but still ...
