Military Review

The Russian Foreign Ministry commented on the statement by the leadership of NATO on the supply of C-400 to Turkey

17
Sale of Turkey anti-aircraft missile system C-400 applies only to Moscow and Ankara, reports RIA News Statement by the head of the NATO Division of the Department of European Cooperation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kirill Logvinov.




Earlier, the alliance criticized the signing of a contract for the supply of Ankara C-400, saying that Turkey’s decision would prevent it from becoming part of a unified NATO air defense system.

If our Turkish colleagues are interested in these types of weapons, if they are ready for negotiations, they are interested in supplies, we are open to any country here regardless of membership in this or that military-political bloc,
said Logvinov on the margins of the Berlin Security Conference, which takes place in the capital of Germany 28-29 November.

Deliveries of complexes to Turkey can begin in 2019 year.

In Ankara, the purchase of C-400 was explained by the fact that the republic was unable to receive similar air defense systems from the countries of the alliance due to the lack of support from the United States. At the same time, the Turkish leadership assured that the deal does not threaten the countries of the military treaty.

    No need to draw an analogy between the Russian systems and the countries of the alliance.
    Do not downplay the possibilities of design thought Russian Kulibins. No. No. No.

      It is up to them to decide (the Turks and other chur * m).
      Nothing terrible "in that.

      MIM-14 and MIM-23 Hawk cannot be mated with C-400 (40Р6) with a UNITED NATO air defense system, the South air defense zone (operating center of Naples, Italy).
      I’m not talking about the centralized (main method) and decentralized control of military operations of air defense forces and equipment - it will not work.
      ASU air defense "Najdzh"
      What would "Kulibiny" or "left-handed" not bothered.
      and whatever finances are spent.
      I represent the hiccups of software developers and manufacturers of basic equipment: concerns "BAE Systems" (UK), "General Motors" and "Harris" (USA)

      Patriot, THAAD (for CSA) fails to mate with C-400

        Sir, Opus! I respect your encyclopedic knowledge in the field of military equipment, both our and our "partners", but the message would be of a different nature ....
        I deeply "violet" pairing in the combat control of combat systems - this is the concern of the Turks ... belay
        I am not indifferent to their attitude to OUR military equipment, according to the type: "the Americans didn’t sell us the donkey - we’ll buy a camel from the Russians, and not from the fact that the camel is good, but PURE BAD."
        That the Turks had MIM-14 Nike-Hercules. And MIM-23 Hawk (scrap from the 60s) or F-16 that appeared at the Janissaries from 2007 to 2015, well, another 70 combat vehicles of the Atylgan and 78 Zypkin air defense systems "Short range + melee complex" Rapier "and EVERYTHING ????
        What Horseradish (garden plant) they evaluate our air defense systems? With them, 200 would be enough for the eyes. negative

    Duc, what can air defense missiles threaten with ... civilian aircraft will be shot down ?! laughing
    The toad just strangles them that they do not buy from them (although they themselves do not sell ... like a dog in the manger) and that they will not be able to turn off the system if necessary.

      The deal threatens the American wallet. And this Trump feels much sharper than anything else.
      So Erdogan encroached on the holy.

    That is, Turkey formally enters into a single NATO air defense system, however, the US refuses to supply Ankara with modern systems. Tell me, then in FIG such a Turks need NATO?

    In Greece, C-300 are standing, no one has died yet. Now in Turkey C-400 stand. I don’t see anything wrong.

      Hmm ... Some kind of strange analogy turns out ...
      Two NATO countries, which are actually enemies ... And both were supplied with air defense systems from the Russian Federation ....
      Interesting girls are dancing ... What only in modern life does not happen ... request

    What is the point of throwing beads before the leadership of NATO? Stoltenberg’s infestation allows, at best, not to miss the urinal. Although other members (NATO members) help him in this, and they also pay 2% each

    But I immediately guessed that Turkey’s S-400 is needed for protection against North Korean missiles, well, to the extremes from Iran!

    That's right, the Turks say. How can a deal be threatening? No, buying can not threaten anyone. But deployment and installation on the database ... but that's another question.

    It seems to me that the purchase of the S-400 air defense system by the Turks is more likely not for integration into NATO missile defense, but rather on the contrary for duplication of NATO complexes. Turkey is trying to conduct an independent policy from colleagues from the US and NATO, and in the event of a confrontation with the allies, they do not want to see air defense systems disconnected or failed. Just as earlier the Greeks, having a sluggish conflict with Turkey, their NATO counterpart, bought the S-300. Since they were most likely not sure about their NATO allies, and were not sure which side they would take. Air defense want to have everything! Including the Saudi Arabs ...
