In Turkey, denied rumors about the purchase of Russian Su-35 fighters

49
Turkey will not buy Russian Su-35 fighters, but will remain committed to the program of creating the fifth-generation American fighter F-35. This statement was made by Minister of Defense of the country Hulusi Akar, Turkish media write.




Commenting on the information of some Turkish publications about Ankara’s plans to acquire Russian aircraft, he said that it was untrue, and the Turkish Ministry of Defense intended to get the American F-35 into service.

Allegations that Turkey will receive Su-35 are not true. Turkey remains an F-35 partner and we want our rights to be respected

- Akar told reporters.

Earlier, the Turkish edition of Daily Sabah, citing its sources, reported that Turkey and Russia were close to signing a contract for the supply of a batch of Russian fighter aircraft of the 4 + Su-35 generation by the Turkish Air Force. According to the publication, it was about 36 new aircraft.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also did not rule out earlier that Ankara will consider the purchase of Russian Su-35 and Su-57 fighters, but only if the United States completely deprives Turkey of the chance to get American F-35.

Note that at the end of June this year, the US Senate banned the sale of fifth-generation F-35 fighters to Turkey due to the purchase of the latest Russian C-400 anti-aircraft missile system. Despite this, Ankara hopes that they can overcome the American ban and get these aircraft into service.

            I'm afraid of the desire or not the desire of Turkey - Nothing depends on it!
            If Mattresses sell airplanes - Turks will buy, if not sell - Turks will look for an alternative!
            In general - They want to punish, want to - take a sip ... and these throwings will be very long! Today, the US Congress approved sanctions against Turkey on the S-400 and Kurds.

              Well, who about 5 years ago would have thought that the Turks would buy a s400. both Chinese and Americans were in the tender. And we. I just don’t remember with c300 or 400. But he is.

        Just the Turks were offended. Blacks wrote off 20 billion, but they don’t. It is necessary to give the Turks a nuclear station, and they will buy airplanes from us. Probably later.

        So after all, recently, only the US Department of Defense signed a contract with Lohid Martyn. On the purchase of 400 fighters. Do you think they are all for mattresses? no, of course ... a good half will go for export. and if the Turks show the money, then no one will forbid them to buy, they are perfectly aware of this and feel the end of the coccygeal bone. but the fact that Erdogan flew in Sochi and looked at the su-57, after all, no one forbids watching either. Do not be fooled that relations with them are deteriorating, they will buy themselves other more loyal relations for money, and tomorrow it will turn out that the Turks did not slaughter the Armenians at all, but most likely "deported" across the open border. ..von with the Kurds seemed to be playing tricks, and then once and thrown. and now they went again to "help" protect the oil. Americans cannot be trusted from their word at all. even when they tell the truth, they lie, because tomorrow they will refute it and - will declare about a new "truth", Revealed as a result of data analysis ... this is a completely false and rotten state.

          The fact that part F-35 will be exported is understandable, but I think that Turkey will not participate in this holiday. Although perhaps this is even better for the Turks, because, for now, the f - 35 is a very dubious airplane, for very decent money.

            I agree, f 35 is raw and small. the bomb is not capacious, but the Turks have already trained on it ... they need this plane for their image, they say look at us how cool we are and we bought from the Russians and we invest in NATO. they benefit from NATO more. than NATO from them. they just have geography and size. and so ... in a word, the Turks. I am sure that they will look for a loophole and find. they are good and cunning diplomats.

              Heard the news - mattresses impose sanctions against Turkey. The Turks, of course, would be happy to receive at least a few pieces for disassembly, but I think the mattresses will not give them such a gift.

                Nope, I have not heard. mattresses can impose sanctions and then they themselves do not comply. I don’t believe anything. They are involved everywhere and in any dirt. therefore, I expect from them any nasty things and misunderstanding. in short, these are mattresses ... they sing like that today, tomorrow they will change the record, and then they can twist that record again.

        If the Turks still buy the F-35, then immediately reveal the historical facts of the innocence of the Turks in the Armenian genocide. It turns out that the Iranians and Venezuelans slaughtered the Armenians. And Assad’s great-grandfather personally gave them orders.

    Ankara hopes that they can overcome the American ban and get these aircraft into service.
    When Erdogan mentioned that the possibility of buying Russian planes was not ruled out, he, out of habit, decided once again to include a little blackmail from the United States, and suddenly he would give it a ride. But so far the recognition of the Armenian genocide by the Turks has only "rolled" in the Senate, which is like a sickle in one place for the Turks. Therefore, the Turks hope for the possible favor of the Americans, but do not make a mistake yourself.

    "...Turkey will not buy Russian Su-35 fighters..."
    ! ...Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also did not rule out earlier that Ankara will consider the purchase of Russian Su-35 and Su-57 fighters... ... "
    =====
    I recalled such a "bearded" anecdote: What is the difference between a diplomat, a girl and an officer?
    - If the diplomat says "Yes" - it means "Maybe"; If the diplomat says “Maybe”, it means “No”; If the diplomat says "No" - it means not a diplomat!
    - If a girl says "No" - it means "Maybe"; If a girl says "Maybe" it means "Yes"; If a girl says "Yes" - then she already not a girl!
    - If the officer says "Yes" - it means "Yes"; If the officer says "No", it means "No"; If a diplomat says "Maybe" - it means not an officer!

    Interesting: Erdogan said "Maybe" (as befits a diplomat!), And the country's Defense Minister Hulusi Akar (also somewhere a politician and diplomat, the post "obliges"!) - said - "NO" !. And he is a cat in this case (according to the anecdote) - a virgin or an officer ??? laughing bully

        Everyone knows that the "penguin" is not a flying misunderstanding that the Americans simply "force to buy their vassals". And then bam - instead of this "misunderstanding" they offer to buy excellent planes at a much lower price, and they don't want to use you.

          Yes, the logic (of the Turks) is extremely simple: they were participants in the F-35 creation program - they "threw in" a lot of "green lemons" into the creation of production facilities for the production of components for the "American miracle" (both the engine and the airframe) - and now "uh -f-f-f! ".... Money then Pity!! So they "spin, like a spit in a pan"!!!

    No matter how cool the Su-35 is, it’s just a 4 ++ generation airplane, and the F-35 was created as a 5th generation airplane. Perfect F-35, more perfect. All are well aware of this. Even the most patriotic forum users, somewhere deep down, have a worm of doubt about the superiority of the Su-35. Correctly considers Turkey.
