The Pentagon can not accept the purchase of Turkey C-400

31
Washington does not recommend Turkey to buy Russian C-400 air defense systems and offers Ankara modern anti-aircraft systems compatible with the NATO air defense system, reports RIA News Pentagon chief James Mattis statement.




What is happening now is that incompatible missile defense systems are being brought into one area. And this is hardly in the best interests of NATO,
Mattis said at a congressional hearing.

The minister added that Washington continues negotiations with Ankara and offers it anti-aircraft systems that meet the standards of the North Atlantic bloc.

As previously reported, Russia and Turkey have agreed to speed up the supply of C-400. This decision was made following the April meeting between Vladimir Putin and Tayyip Erdogan.

In December 2017, Moscow and Ankara signed a loan agreement for the purchase of C-400. According to Turkish representatives, the country will receive two batteries. An agreement was also reached on launching a production line for licensed air defense systems in Turkey.

    the cunning Erdogan will buy a C400 and ask for an alternative at a discount ..

    what is the oriental bazaar, I know .. there you have to shout loudly that the seller has rotten melons and sour grapes .. as soon as the seller and the buyer begin to bark - 100% completion of the transaction ..

    By the way, yesterday purposefully probed and compared the effectiveness of the Patriots and C300.

        An agreement was also reached on the launch in Turkey of a line for the production of licensed air defense systems.

        Well, technology is squandered again! There certainly will not be all the documentation, but the prerequisites for copying ... By the same China, and they will gladly buy ...

        I would have held a competition in place of the Turks with the shooting of air defense systems of both our and American. Then they would figure out whose complexes are better. Only the United States will not do this - it is understandable: why should they lose potential buyers.

          Here the question is more likely not only and not so much in price competition, but with the ability of an air defense system to counteract the aviation of the country of the air defense manufacturer in combat conditions. I doubt that the corresponding "surprises" are not provided for at complexes of this level. Erdogan needs the C400 to show the United States that the Turks will also have “teeth” against their aircraft.

          Yes, great! Put somewhere in the desert and fuck - let them intercept. Moreover, the striped intercept our missile, and we - the striped missile. In general, it turns out a rocket launcher wink

        America is high time to understand that Perdoganov’s Turkey cannot be part of NATO. The delivery of the F-35 to the Turks will be a tragedy in general, there is no doubt that Russian specialists will gain access to this aircraft.

      Why should Turkey buy something else when they themselves will produce under a license.

        If they will produce under license, then simplified versions. Nobody will transfer the technology of the original S-400.
        And so, let them do it, it will not affect our defense capability, money will still pay for licensed production, and at the same time, our plants will be unloaded. For us, the priority is updating our own air defense, and not selling for export.

      You all forget for a moment that Erdogan is the bloodline of GDP. Who informed Erdogan of the coup? Guess what Naturally GDP, which means that the skin of Erdogan remained intact. And if the skin is intact, then the one who saved it is considered in the east to be a blood brother to the grave. Now focus laughing no matter what the Turks say and wherever he speaks, he will always follow in the wake of the GDP. Here you can no longer jump off the foot of a racing train. And he will drag gas to himself and buy weapons, but all on the sly from the world community. The skin still wants to live. laughing

      And about the weapon, the scream is from behind the puddle, notice the Turks do not spread much, and behind the puddle the financial pyramids lose their profit, the Turk could not be removed. And this howl will stand right up to the green brooms. laughing And the Turks do not care, they are made of meat laughing Well, then, as in the song of the Leningrad group laughing

    In fact, a train called "Turkey" can already be said for a long time gone for NATO. It’s interesting how NATO wanted it, the same European Union, when for more than 20 years they have been acting with Turkey, as with some kind of absurdity. Say, you will behave yourself well-we will accept in the European Union. But a quarter century is not accepted. And apparently the Turks are pretty tired of it. And if about 20 years ago the positions of the United States in Turkey were strong enough and they could click to suspend such a purchase (as was the case with our KA-50 helicopters), now Turkey looks at these recommendations through her fingers, realizing that only she can take care of yourself. And buys the best that is in the global arms market. And as for what does not meet NATO standards, so most of the "Young-NATO" people still have Soviet-made anti-aircraft missile equipment. And nothing. There is no particularly annoying talk about compliance or non-compliance with NATO standards

    Hardly! The S-400 will need to be serviced, but only our specialists are serving. You can’t just sell them to the side, who will service them? The contract is only Russia - Turkey, no third! request

    And what can one look out for there, except for communication channels and weak points of electronic complexes ?? For our aircraft, we obviously do not need anything from him. And again, you have all the allies of the pseudo-copy of the original American
