Pompeo reprimanded Turkish colleague for purchasing C-400

56
Yesterday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed his concern to Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet авavushoglu about Ankara’s decision to acquire the Russian C-400 anti-aircraft system, reports Interfax.




The Secretary of State stressed the serious level of US concern if they (the Turkish side) continue (this deal). He asked Cavusoglu to carefully evaluate the systems that can interact with NATO,
told a senior representative of the American delegation.

In turn, Cavusoglu said:

We discussed the C-400 topic with Pompeo. We told him that we needed these systems.


Earlier, NATO has repeatedly drawn the attention of Ankara to the fact that the Russian C-400 air defense systems are incompatible with the alliance’s weapons.

Recall, April 25 Head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia Dmitry Shugaev said that the parties are currently discussing the possibility of producing components for C-400 in Turkey.

He noted that the first stage of the delivery of complexes to Turkey includes not only the shipment of equipment, but also “training Turkish specialists to work with it”, as well as “creating repair bases on the territory of this country”.

On April 3, about the time of his visit to Ankara, Vladimir Putin said that the question of the possibility of transferring C-400 production technologies to Turkey "lies in a commercial plane, not in a military-political one".

            Something that reminds me of the WITHOUT INTERMEDIATE transfer of advanced Russian weapons technologies to Turkey! By the way, it reminds professional military experts as well.
            And speaking of Turkey, as a historically loyal Russian "partner", I generally keep quiet!

            In general, I am in great doubt about the correctness of such a deal, and some military experts, too. But, as they say, “above” is more visible.
            However, if someday the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia Dmitry Shugaev is accused of betrayal, it will be too late to restore the preservation of the previous level of national security of Russia.

                What do you think the word "components" means?

                When I worked as a designer at a light industry enterprise, we had Japanese equipment for which Japan supplied us with special working knives for gold as components. After 2 years, deliveries ceased. And with them, and expensive Japanese equipment could be thrown into a landfill. If Japanese knives worked and were replaced after 6 months, then our knives, constructively made with Japanese knives, worked 1 day. The problem was with the chem. the composition of the steel of Japanese knives, which is not produced in our country. the guys in their workshop turned to me as a rationalizer. Well, I had experience in design work in the military-industrial complex and I remained in contact with specialist technologists. They supplied me with working literature, identified chemists in their laboratories. the composition of the "Japanese" steel and its physical characteristics. And I picked up our domestic steel for knives with the necessary mode of heat treatment of parts. And only then did we reach the same operating parameters of knives as the Japanese. And before that, our country paid the Japanese for them in gold.

                What are the components for the S-400, I do not know. However, their production in Turkey implies a uniquely similar transfer of detailed design drawings and detailed technology for their manufacture. Then Turkey can upgrade their production to its conditions and pass it off as its know-how.

                  But SAM - the system is WHERE more complicated !!! You’ve been messing around with the “knives” for a long time, and here is a construction that not only the Chinese - the Yankees could not copy !!!!
                  Yes Yes!! S-300 (I don’t remember in what modification, in my opinion - PS or PM) was sold to the Chinese, so until now they have not been able to "clone" it !!! "Analog", which they managed to reproduce - still inferior 300 cams !!! You think, why did they need the S-400 after that ?? Yes, and in large quantities ???
                  "Yankees" - also .... The fact that they got it is still sorted out CAN NOT!
                  And these are not jokes and not fancy!!!
                  ======
                  Now, about the "components" .... Do you really think that some "CRITICAL" technologies will transfer them? Yeah - right now !! Any blocks, electric motors - yes! Probably they will give, but something REALLY serious ........

              Look in YouTube, where the S-300 developer talked about selling this complex to foreigners ... In short, even Chinese copiers of equipment will need decades, since the microcircuits were created (and protected) in the Russian Federation, and most importantly, the software, but it is protected on all 100% of theft ... I think you guess how ..

The whole problem is that to decrypt the intercepted message you often need several years of "machine time" ...

                    HQ-9, look at his rockets. Something was taken from Patriot, something from SAMP-T. Radar from the S-300.
                    What does the ZAS have to do with it, we don’t want to transmit anything, we don’t care what’s on the other end, we need the program code and that’s it. And the ability to edit it .. They will open it with a bang.

                Well, why then in Russia did the military “peddlers” regarding Turkey spread their “ears” and spread their pockets for the gesheft? sad If even the Americans never categorically transfer the technology of the entire production chain of anything into one hand - one country. Never!
                In addition, Turkey is a NATO country.

                    Vladimir! hi I understand that you want to reassure me. However, I also read information from other sources.
                    Here, for example, is the latest data.
                    Turkey in defiance of Moscow agreed with the United States on joint action in Syria.
                    Turkey will operate in Syrian Manbij together with the United States. Moreover: the “Manbij model” will be extended to other parts of Syria. In particular, in the area east of the Euphrates River. About it on Friday, April 27, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said following talks with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

                    Cavusoglu announced that Turkey is simultaneously considering a “lucrative proposal” to purchase Patriot air defense systems from the United States.
                    In the triangle "USA-Turkey-Russia" - Ankara makes another foreign policy zigzag. She played on the side of the Kremlin, gained access to the agricultural market of the Russian Federation. And now, abandoning the S-400, most likely, will refuse from the "Turkish stream".
                    Earlier, Erdogan’s plans were contrary to the strategy of the United States, which considers the Kurds to be the agents of their influence in Syria. The odds looked serious. As early as April 22, the Turkish leader, in an interview with NTV, said that his country's strategic partner, the United States, posed a threat to Turkey, as it provided military support to the Kurds. And now a few days later the situation changed. Cavusoglu gives a signal that a compromise between the US and Turkey has been reached. And this was apparently done at the cost of another “stab in the back" to Moscow.
                    Russian military experts consider Russia's policy towards Turkey not entirely strategically adequate - politically and economically unprofitable.
                    In general, the article is large, it’s better to read it yourself!

                  Greece is also a NATO country, but it does have a S-300PMU-1.
                  “A very significant event for the Greeks,” the diplomat said. “The rocket launched from the proving ground on the Greek island of Crete immediately hit the training target, so the second one wasn’t even fired. But another thing is equally important: firstly, this is the first shooting at NATO our system C-300 PMU1, secondly, this system was originally acquired in 1999 by Cyprus, and 14 years of expectations didn’t do anything with it.In 2006-2007, the rights to the system passed from Cyprus to Greece because Ankara did not wanted her to appear in Cyprus.

      “The Servant of the Two Masters” Erdogan is much more successful. He accepted for himself the installation that the Russians would forgive everything for their desire to sell gas and weapons, so you can play these two cards, at the same time having preferences from amers (for example, permission to at least partially kill the SDS Kurds) and in Syria a controlled piece.

    It’s they who do not know how to cook (apply) them yet.
    And how it will be revealed in the process that F35 is still compatible (applicable), the long-term plans for the purchase of aviation equipment will also be called into question.

    Well, it would be strange if the mattresses were silent about this. They will, with the tenacity of down-woodpeckers, repeat their concern over and over about how Turkey made a wrong geopolitical choice. Cooking matchsticks, count how many times the stripes “take care and worry”

    Well, if the United States inserts a reprimand to a member of the alliance for the purchase of the S-400, then the Americans know everything about the S-400.

      A major expert on our air defense systems is Senator McCain, and those US Air Force pilots who shot down during the Vietnam War are one thing. They respect our air defense. And secondly, do you really think that the export of air defense systems and air defense systems for their own army is the same thing?

    The S-400 is becoming a weapon to deter coups, even in NATO countries. Everyone learned US tactics - the first and main blow, always from the air. The big puncture in the United States is an attempted coup, even in the NATO country. As a result, the turn is a dozen countries for the purchase of S-400.

    Vladimir Putin said that the question of the possibility of transferring S-400 production technologies to Turkey "lies in the commercial plane, and not in the military-political"

    Earlier, NATO has repeatedly drawn the attention of Ankara to the fact that the Russian C-400 air defense systems are incompatible with the alliance’s weapons.
    Upon completion of testing a new long-range missile, the complex will be able to hit aerodynamic targets at ranges of up to 400 km and tactical ballistic targets at ranges of up to 60 km flying at a speed of up to 4,8 km / s: cruise missiles, tactical and strategic aircraft, maneuvering ballistic warheads rockets. The early detection radar provides a detection range of up to 600 km. Missiles can hit low-flying targets at a height of 5 m (for comparison: the American Patriot complex is capable of hitting targets only at a height of at least 100 m). It is possible to use several types of missiles with different launch weight and launch range, which allows you to create a layered defense.

    According to the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force, "they are able to effectively repulse massive air raids of modern air attack weapons in conditions of intense electronic suppression and to carry out a combat mission in various weather conditions."

    Well, who said that our system is not compatible with the NATO?
    Even as combined.
    They launch their facilities, and our system combines them to complete disability.
    And then, the fog started. But the Turks began to think!
    Do not dampen the Turks.
