The US gave Turkey the details of a possible Patriot contract

40
The American delegation arrived in Ankara handed over to the Turkish government detailed proposals on a possible agreement on the supply of Patriot anti-aircraft systems, reports Interfax.



According to the agency referring to the Turkish media, the American representatives held a series of meetings at the Turkish Defense Ministry, the Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Defense Industry.

The reaction of the Turkish authorities to the proposals submitted by guests from the United States is not reported. At the same time, the media clarify that in the case of preparing a contract, the issue of transferring technology to Ankara will also be taken into account.

Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt авavuşoлуlu said that the possible purchase of Patriot complexes would not affect the agreement with Russia to acquire C-400 air defense systems from it.

In December, it became aware of the approval of a possible deal by the US Department of State. The estimated contract value is about $ 3,5 billion.

Ankara twice rejected Washington’s proposals for a Patriot: for the first time in favor of the Chinese systems, the second in favor of the C-400 SAM. The United States and NATO have repeatedly warned Turkey that the Russian C-400 cannot be integrated into the alliance's air defense system. In addition, Washington threatened to block the delivery of Ankara F-35 fighter jets, if the Russian systems are still purchased.

As a member of the Federation Council Frants Klintsevich noted earlier, Turkey will not offend overseas friends.

As a NATO country, Turkey will not be in direct conflict with the United States, but will try to acquire both the American Patriot complexes and the Russian C-400 SAM, he said.

        So Turkish tovarischi can remember about the Greeks - by the end of the 2000s, they exchanged the S-1999PMU purchased by Cyprus from Russia in 300 for the Tor-M1 and several Zuzana self-propelled guns, the exchange took place due to the reluctance of the same Turkey to these complexes ended up in Cyprus. As a result, both S-300s (as an example - https://topwar.ru/37356-greciya-uspeshno-provela-pervye-strelby-iz-zrk-s-300-pmu1.html) and "Patriot" PAC -3 and in my opinion, none of this tragedy did, but now, about times, about morals ..

    Of course, it is also necessary to acquire the S-400 (as one of the main air defense systems of the Russian Federation?) In order to test the F-35 on it, which the entire Western bloc is betting in the future. I hope ours will not sell after all.

      Yes, SUCH S-400s are not in service in the Russian Federation, this is an export option, there are a lot of nuances, only specialists know, one can clearly single out, for example, the maximum target range of 400 km, such missiles cannot be exported according to the non-proliferation treaty missile technology, and export restrictions do not count the numbers

      Turkey's GDP reaches 900 billion dollars. and will not find the lousy 3.5 billion dollars ??? They will buy petriot and s-400 in bulk and will not notice the spending) By the way, they themselves export up to 6 billion dollars. armaments and the years ahead, this figure will grow sharply, as Turkey's armaments are in priority. First of all, there is a special demand for Milgem warships, Baikar combat drones and Atak-2 helicopters with smart missiles and jet fire systems "Kasyrga". I understand Turkish and recently there was a TV program on this topic, there are more than 10 countries in the queue for these weapons, ready to buy even tomorrow for cash.

        And the list of countries is possible to understand the possible volume of orders, in any case, in the 2017 year, Turkey occupied the 12 place in the world in the sale of weapons and its volume is half that located in the 11 place of South Korea

              Sometimes Azerbaijan finances the necessary weapons, like the case with the "Polonaises", and sometimes it helps in order to take the necessary equipment or supplies in exchange, and sometimes they invest in the country's economy in order to free up the necessary money for this country, which they should spend on those the same objects. (for example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_34gexA7nA for 6.3 billion dollars) Instead, take the high-precision "SOM" "Kasirqa" and a lot of things from "Aselsan" and "Roketsan" products ... Moreover, Turkey is a fraternal country, in every sense, and it will be profitable to buy from them.

    The Turks are now in a favorable position. It is logical that they will raise rates, both before the Anglo-Saxons, and before us, as far as their appetite and prudence of the authorities allow. That is - politics.

            Can you buy friendship? Or else in Japan, for example, it is believed that it is better to die than to “lose your face”, because the dead have no shame, and the living is still living in the status of the dead. Nobody has anything to do with the person who has lost his face, since how can you deal with a corpse? No.

            Now, if he did not take advantage of the current situation, then yes.
            Just ascribe everything to him ??? He is an important figure, but not a queen, in the game that is now underway.

          With "partners" it is somewhat difficult, because the criteria there are not the same as we are to friends, for example, presented, we check for lice!

    Everything is clear with the Turks. "Patriots" for show-off, S-400 for business. I just can't understand why our "defective managers" are selling air defense systems to the NATO country, which are head and shoulders above any NATO handicrafts? It is not necessary to squander technology, but to lean these "managers" against the wall.
