Prime Minister of Turkey spoke about the reasons for the acquisition of C-400

50
Ankara went to sign an agreement with Moscow on the supply of C-400 air defense systems, since it could not receive similar systems from NATO countries due to the lack of US support, reports RIA News statement by Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım.




We wanted to get them (air defense systems) from NATO member countries, but we could not get the necessary support from the US ... The fact that we entered into defense cooperation with Russia does not detract from our obligations as a member of NATO. Quite the contrary, it enhances them. We do not intend to abandon NATO. We need such cooperation with Russia only in the near future to destroy threats to Turkey,
said the prime minister in an interview with the Hurriyet newspaper.

According to him, “Turkey had no other choice, because, due to the lack of a modern air defense system, the Turkish Air Force could not destroy the 71 rocket fired from Turkey from Syria, resulting in the death of 29 people.” The city of Kilis, bordering on Syria, has been repeatedly subjected to shelling by terrorists.

In turn, the Minister of Defense of Turkey Nurettin Janikli said that the deal with Russia is only part of the Turkish program to strengthen air defense. The main goal - the creation of its own enterprise for the production of anti-aircraft systems.

LAW C-400 purchased. Everything connected with this question is already details. However, we do not intend to rest on our laurels and are aimed at the development of domestic capacities. Air defense systems should be developed in Turkey itself, in domestic enterprises,
said the minister.

According to him, it is for this reason that “a preliminary agreement was reached with the Franco-Italian consortium Eurosam”.

Recall, last Wednesday in Brussels, a memorandum of intent was signed between Turkey, France and Italy in the field of air defense. The agreement provides for the joint production and supply to Turkey of the new generation SAMP-T anti-aircraft system of the Eurosam consortium.

    Frankly, and most importantly, it is clear that if the "West" again turns its "face" to Turkey, then it will immediately cooperate.

      Frankly strengthened the potential enemy! But the Turks are the Turks, one cannot expect anything else from them.

        The reason for the purchase is simple to disgrace is the diversification of security systems.

          +1 Turks after it emerged that the Yankees wanted to demolish the Sultan, he decided to protect himself, because he knows that if something happens, the mattress weapon will not shoot at the mattresses.
          they remember the precedent with Israel when Turkish F-16s couldn’t target Israeli F-16s, as their systems showed that Israeli planes were friendly planes and that they couldn’t open fire. while the Israelis had their avionics on these aircraft (or their software) and they did not have such a problem.
          therefore, they understand that if suddenly the mattresses decide to bomb the Turks, then the Turks can only shoot rifles at them, and they won’t shoot much there.

      it’s frankly clear that the Turks are not covered up, and the desire to be covered up, but there’s nothing, and they are afraid of both “partners” (and suddenly the “patriots” will not work for them), and us (although 4oo for us will not work either, but, they are much less afraid of us than of "partners", because our policy is different and more understandable.

      or you just wishful thinking ..
      they openly say that they bought the c400 because there was no alternative ...
      the Yankees did not want to share technologies and supply patriots at a price that suits them, and with Moscow, apparently, a compromise was reached on these issues ..
      but finally, I believe that the Turks really bought the c400 only when the parties officially announced this)

    That is, the enemies of your S-400 are our enemies, and we want to have weapons that can see and shoot them down. Aye, yes Sultan! Ah yes outlined floridly! Like, we do not mind knocking down the American-NATO planes, so as not to fly as they want over the territory of Turkey. And if something as a blow to the allies, which is not a Muslim at all, already Allah will thank us personally for this act ... Handsome Erdogan. That's what it means to allow the Turks to sell only tomatoes. And what will happen when they start selling our gas? I’m even afraid to imagine a NEW Ottoman gas empire in Europe.

    due to the lack of a modern air defense system, the Turkish Air Force could not destroy the 71 rocket fired at Turkey from the territory of Syria

    And the C-400 SAMs could knock them down?
    I don’t know what rockets fired at them and who, but Gd to help, as they say. The protection of citizens is a sacred cause. I am afraid, however, that, as in Syria, these systems will only protect military installations.

    Due to the complicated relations with the main partner in the NATO bloc, Turkey is afraid, "in which case", to remain completely without air defense. That's why the purchase is not so logical at first glance. The recent coup shows that there is no hope for partners

        1. Opportunity to earn
        2. Push the stick into the wheels of US-Turkish relations.

        And then Russia is still not capable of fighting with Turkey. Turkey is still a member of NATO. Anyway, any arbitrarily serious war of Russia is useless. Anti-Barmalei - anti-piracy operations do not count.

    It is clear that the Turk is disingenuous (as usual). They weren’t fired at with anything serious, and the C-400 was not designed for "small things." C-300 (in modifications) would be enough for them.
