EurAsian Times announces "malfunction" of S-400 air defense systems delivered to Turkey

38

The EurAsian Times published an editorial in which a loud statement was made about the Russian S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems delivered to Turkey.


The information resource, without citing specific sources of information, writes that the Turkish military, which operate the air defense systems received from Russia, "have identified malfunctions that cannot be eliminated for about six months."

The very same article in the EurAsian Times bears the title "The S-400 complexes acquired by Turkey from Russia are faulty."



At the same time, the editorial board of the aforementioned publication builds its far-reaching conclusions on the basis of the fact that Russian air defense systems "have not been put on alert in Turkey."

Then there is a reference to the Greek media, in particular - to the news site Pentapostagma, which published the following:

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar stressed the need to resolve issues of operational readiness by experts from Ankara.

And this is from the EurAsian Times:

Moreover, there are rumors in Russia that the Turkish army does not have the experience or knowledge to bring Russian missiles on alert, and Russian analysts believe the situation is irreversible without intervention and oversight from Russian technicians.

A statement referring to rumors clearly speaks of the dubious information value of this material, but it is still worth paying attention to. This is not the first time that attempts by certain forces and structures, including foreign media, have been traced to question the effectiveness of the Russian S-400 air defense systems. All sorts of reasons are invented for this, including rumors that the S-400 in Turkey is allegedly "out of order". Such statements are frankly untenable, if only for the simple reason that, upon acceptance of weapons, they undergo numerous stages of condition checking, and are also designed for further maintenance during the warranty period.

    An expert sat there, looked at his financial assets and realized that he needed to earn extra money so as not to lose weight. I sucked my finger and sucked something.

      No, the order came, the expert honestly worked it out.
      In a transnational corporation like the EurAsian Times, department heads will not let the gag go because they are too easy to replace.

      good And in general, all this "news" (note - from editorial articles!), clearly belongs to the category of OBS ("one grandmother said ..."). And what is the article "editorial"talks about redaction seems to have received a very profitable order, or - an order from "which impossible to refuse"! drinks

      A statement referring to rumors unequivocally speaks of the dubious informational value of this material, such statements are frankly untenable, if only for the simple reason that numerous stages of state verification go through when accepting weapons.

    The most important detail is the spacer between the chair and the appliance. You will not be supplied with a Russian air defense officer with a complex. But train the gasket with mogem. The main thing here is not to show off

    And it seems to me that the answer is in the following phrase:
    Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar stressed the need to address operational readiness issues experts from Ankara.

    - The Turks are trying to portray independence and with their playful hands are poking around in the complex, just not to ask Russia to help with the integration of the complex into their system, so that we could not get data about it.

    Like flies, here and there, there are rumors about houses,
    And toothless old women carry them around their minds.

    (I bought a TV, brought it to the dacha, connected the antenna, I press the buttons ... It does not work! I raised a scandal, they sent a master, he inserted a plug into 220 volts and it all worked.)

    This topic is empty. If the delivered system is faulty, then the detected failures during the warranty period of operation are eliminated within the specified period by the supplier. After that, the arbitration decides the question of which party is obliged to pay.

    And maybe even simpler - while the Main NATO ally and the ally of the Main ally - Israel are studying the S-400, it is necessary to somehow lend a reason for not being put on alert. winked

    It only takes Turkey 1 hour to activate its C400. Turkey has completed training of specialists. Only Turkey has the initiative for Turkish S-400s. Radar tests of the S400 were carried out by Turkish specialists with the F-16 in Ankara and the Su series in Russia. Everything is in order, we are waiting for the French Charles de Gaulle (aircraft carrier) to officially declare their activity.
