Turkey announced the possibility of a new purchase of C-400

29
The Turkish leadership announced the possibility of purchasing an additional batch of Russian C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems. The final decision on this subject depends on the position of the United States: do they intend to further limit partnerships with Ankara.





This position was publicly voiced by the country's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu at the site of the international strategic forum in Bled (Slovenia).

Today we need more systems [SAM] until we can produce our own. And if we can get them from the United States, we will buy the Patriots. If not, we will purchase more C-400. We are an independent country

- said the senior official.

At the same time, he pointed out that the issue of acquiring Russian Su-57 and Su-35 fighters is not discussed:

Not. Now we are entering the F-35 program


Chavushoglu severely criticized the attitude of Western countries towards the rapprochement of Ankara and Moscow. According to him, after the destruction of Su-24, "our friends from NATO" recommended establishing a dialogue with the Kremlin. Subsequently, when accusations fell due to intensified contacts with the Russian Federation, he recalled this. However, alliance colleagues only laughed in response.

        I'm afraid that everything is just beginning. And the Turkish "daisy" with the purchase of the SU-35/57 will also get bored with us.

          Russia is accustomed to such behavior, but the fact that the Turks are actually blackmailing the United States makes it very annoying to striped.

            How to say. Blackmail began and continues with the Americans F-35. But the Turks slowed down: they started talking about patriot again. Americans on the eve of the sale of C-400 and so offered the Turks to buy the same patriot, they say, take it, but just not Russian. How will it turn now?

              Americans are used to setting the conditions and blackmailing them, and the whole world must obey. And when other countries, be it Turkey or Russia or some other country, begin to defend their interests, spitting on US Wishlist, they are surprised, indignant, upset. But they can come up with nothing but mutually unprofitable sanctions.

              This trolling is modern Turkish fun. In relation to the USA.
              Actually on the verge of glum.
              All the pots should be beaten by the USA themselves, introducing a good bit of fun in the divorce process in the NATO harem.

      Turks are such Turks ... Bazaar, let's just say ... What do they want? Airplanes are too difficult for them. Again, "fall in love" with the United States - then wait, Erdogan, a surprise. It hurts you are obstinate. No matter how you choke on a cherry bone ... the CIA is a master at such nishtyaks ...

        If a diplomat says no, does that mean yes?

        The arms trade loves silence and is inextricably linked to politics.

        I’ll venture to give a forecast: the Americans will not sell the F-35. The reason is - what if the Turks will let us see our plane. For loans.

      The United States is putting pressure on Turkey, which is trying to blackmail the Americans. The "allies" in the NATO bloc are having fun.
      “Our friends from NATO” recommended establishing a dialogue with the Kremlin.
      It is clear that the Americans were not eager at that time to get involved in a possible armed conflict with Russia over Turkey, and therefore gave advice to the Turks on the principle of saving the drowning - the work of the drowning themselves. They simply could not imagine that the relationship was really normalizing. And now they are ringing the bells, but Erdogan also got into a pose.

      Well, yes, Erdogan so simply asked Putin about it and looked at the plane, most likely they will buy a batch of 10 pieces 57, and there the relationship will sharply warm with the USA and already the F-35s will

          It is also not necessary to copy, just study and create an effective counteraction system

            Not a little expensive to study? For the Su-35 ours put up a price tag to the Indians 75 million euros. Pay a billion for 10 Su-57, just to study? Erdogan will be asked to resign tomorrow.

            Firstly, they did not steal. He stole a precursor. They had nothing to do with this hijacking
            Secondly, why 10 if enough and a maximum of two.?
            And thirdly, with what fright did you get that the aircraft was intended for sale will be stuffed with secret equipment?

              Yes, they did not contact him and did not cook, he himself knew that there was enough fuel, the whole arrangement of the airfields in Japan. Yes, and in Japan itself, the gullible military is some sort of combat aircraft from the USSR, it is already entering the airspace, of course, why bring down such a miracle, we are preparing an airfield
              Secondly, I agree, and two will be enough, but of course it will be better with 10, you can do a training squadron, and not repaint f-16 under su-57
              Since they wrote more than once that in E the version differs from the usual one, only in the absence of a friend-or-foe module (which the customer inserts), and modified weapons suspension units (again, at the customer’s choice) ... So, if the Su-57 was originally if there’s nothing secret, it’s possible to undermine with a clear conscience, in other cases all that is on it will go to the E version

                    And yet, it’s not necessary to consider everyone as corrupt. There are a lot of honest people, and they also developed rockets and planes, and other weapons intended for export are also honest people. And they certainly couldn’t stick anything secret there.
                    But if Putin wanted to "sell" for a puddle, no one would even know about it in 100 years.

                      The export version is not developed as a separate aircraft, the export version is only an adaptation of the usual one to the conditions and the customer’s desire, so that the blocks are the same and if they stuck on the usual one it will remain (although I repeat)
