Turkey intends to purchase American Patriot air defense system

53
Turkish newspaper Akşam, citing a statement by the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Hami Aksoy, reports that Turkey intends to hold talks with the United States on the purchase of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems.


According to the newspaper, next week, Aksoy may make a visit to the United States and negotiate the purchase of American anti-aircraft complexes.

Turkey intends to purchase American Patriot air defense system


Earlier, a group of US senators from the Democratic Party appealed to the US State Department with a request to clarify whether it should not impose sanctions against Turkey for the planned acquisition of the Russian C-400 air defense system.

The US Law on Countering America's Opponents through Sanctions (CAATSA) provides for secondary sanctions against countries that will enter into "significant" transactions with the Russian military-industrial complex. The US State Department declares that it leads with all foreign buyers of the Russian weapons Negotiations to ensure that they refuse to purchase on pain of US sanctions.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, commenting on the statement of the republic’s Foreign Ministry that “Turkey continues to negotiate with the United States on the purchase of air defense systems, said that the Ankara and Washington talks on anti-aircraft missile systems (Patriot) of the Patriot are not an alternative 400.

Despite the mistakes that the United States makes in Syria, they are still our allies. [Patriot Aids Negotiations] are not an alternative to C-400
- he said.

    The master is coaxed ... Or the S-400 from the Yankees, and the "patriot" from us? - also an option ... Or "I get along" they drive until the deal takes place, until our systems arrive on Turkish soil ...

        So far, Erdogan succeeds by playing on the contradictions of the leaders of the two Great States. This will continue until both states get tired of blackmail from Turkey. In any case, the United States holds Turkey in its arms and will not allow it to come off far.
        Unfortunately, Russians love to create problems for themselves and then successfully overcome them. That is what calms.

          Something that does not show the benefits that Erdogan receives. All that he received was a confrontation with Europe, problems with the United States, the war with the Kurds and distrust with Russia. Well and on trifles, problems with all neighbors

            In my opinion there are only benefits. Petriot from the United States, with the help of blackmail, bargained, the sales market in Russia for junk and agricultural products in person, this is not counting the nuclear power plant and the gas flow, which is already happening strangenesses. And the Turks have problems with neighbors since the time of the migration of the Seljuks to new pastures (Asia Minor)
            And most importantly, free access to the minds and hearts of Russian Turks.

          A citizen, Erdogan has done so much useful in Syria for the Russian Federation and Assad that throwing with an air defense system is just babbling. Putin used his differences with the United States to the fullest.

      Earlier, the US commander-in-chief of NATO forces in Europe, American General Curtis Scaparrotti, said the United States hoped that Turkey would refuse to acquire Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems and warned Ankara about the consequences of such a move. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stressed that Turkey is ready for retaliatory steps in the event of US sanctions.

      It would be a tragic mistake to supply Perdogan with Patriots and F-35s. You cannot rely on the Turks. Better to lose them as customers, let them buy S-400 and Su-57

        The Pentagon is losing not just the Turks, but its influence in the region, and given the disagreements about Syria, it may still gain an enemy, so the Pentagon was better off just silently selling the Patriots and not angering its former friend.

    In December last year in Ankara, Russian and Turkish representatives signed a loan agreement on the supply of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems, RIA Novosti reports.
    With the Turkish Stream, the Turks have already "shaved" us, maybe it is worth "shaving" them with a "loan" for the S-400 and especially at the nuclear power plant?

      hi And what is the use of Russia from this, except to practice being a barber?
      If the "prepayment" from Turkey is gone, the likelihood that they will leave the contract is small. The Turks are demanding the extradition of Gulen from the United States. Those will never go for it. The United States attempted a coup in Turkey. And the Turks do not forgive this. In addition, you won't be able to put pressure on Turkey, you can lose such a partner. And bargaining is something you can bargain for.

    First, the S-400 does not have a long-range missile;
    Second: Almaz-Antey sold Turkey a dummy;
    Third: only the Patriot, and of course in the modification of SAM-3.

      S-400 has no long-range missile

      Of course !!!! 1 wassat 100 km of Patriotovsky against 240 km of S-400 (in export)
      Diamond makes, but does not sell, Rosoboronexport is engaged in this.
      And if they ever sold a dummy, not a single dog in the world would get involved with Russia.
      And at the moment, besides the Turks, more than 10 armies of the world are in line for the S-400.

      No, it’s just bargaining about something we don’t know. As an example, the United States once forced the EU to sign a free trade agreement with Turkey, i.e. a kind of "thank you" for some kind of service.
      The Turks are unlikely to refuse to buy the S-400, but the US will also be happy to "acquire" the Patriot for money. wink

        What I mean is that the Turks want to have different air defense systems in case of a conflict situation. If they only have the S-400, and we are one of the players in the BV and the Black Sea, then in the event of a conflict, the Turks will become vulnerable to us. And the same story with the NATO coalition. That is, we can talk about some kind of anti-missile sovereignty.

    The system needs a special satellite in orbit. This satellite must inform the PATRIOT location station in advance of the coordinates of the rocket and its flight path. It takes a whopping 90 seconds, almost 10 times longer than the S-400. They don't need this hurdy-gurdy, unless it's for half the price. And apparently the Turks are pulling this topic for the sake of the F-35.

    Turkey intends to purchase American Patriot air defense system

    Negotiations on Patriot air defense systems] are not an alternative to the S-400

    in principle, everything is clear. The Turks, like the Saudis, wanted to have an antidote to both those and others. There will be a hassle with mattresses - the S-400 will come into play, a hassle with us will help the Patriots. When you do not make weapons yourself, I am forced to buy two sets
