"Turkey could activate the S-400 to track the planes of a NATO ally" - Greek press called for clarification of the situation

35

Reports that Turkey has transferred S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to the north of the country - to the Black Sea coast - aroused great interest in Greece.


The Greek media are discussing statements and footage from Turkey, where it was noted how the S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems purchased from Russia are sent through the city of Samsun to the Black Sea training ground to participate in military maneuvers. We will remind that earlier "Voennoye Obozreniye" published material about the transfer of the S-400 to the Turkish Black Sea coast - to the Sinop region.

It became known that the Greek press now appealed to the country's authorities to find out the following:

Turkey could activate the Russian air defense system to track the aircraft of a NATO ally. Is it so?



In this case, Greece itself is understood as a "NATO ally".



The Greek media write that the S-400 air defense system could be activated in northern Turkey to track the F-16 fighters of the Greek Air Force.

Military experts note that taking into account the distance from Sinop to the western borders of Turkish airspace (at least 850 km), the S-400 air defense systems could not be used to track the flights of the Greek fighter aviation over the Aegean Sea.

From the statement:

The performance characteristics of Russian air defense systems, at least previously announced, do not allow the S-400 to monitor the air situation at such distances.

But Greek reporters and activists are not satisfied with such statements. They demand from the country's leadership to obtain from Turkey documentary guarantees that the S-400 was not used to track the Greek military aircraft.

      As far as I know, the radius of destruction of the S-400 aeroballistic targets is 400 km. Detection radius - 600. If they are crammed into Sinop, then they cannot reach Greece or Armenia. But where they reach ...

      The radius of destruction is marked !!! And it is extremely difficult to see what is happening over Greece and Armenia from Sinop

          Moreover, the S-400 is precisely tailored for NATO aircraft. Basically. Although, of course, it does not matter to her, unless Russian manufacturers have included in the export version, a certain share of "bookmarks" such as friend or foe, in order to secure their planes from their own complex.

      She is such a strange nata

      Nata is a well-organized union

      NATO is based on an understanding of the complete uselessness of the allies as a significant military force, given the importance of the territories of these countries for the deployment of bases and American contingents

      Of the real allies, the Americans recognize only Great Britain and Japan. The first acts not by number, but by skill (navy, naval special forces), and Japan, with its first-class navy, is not even a NATO member

    Only a year passed, and it became completely clear that a big mistake had been made by Russia - the sale of the S-400 to Turkey and the constructed gas pipeline.

    Are the Greeks worried that it was the S-400 air defense system that could track them? Potential tracking by other systems doesn't bother them? If so, then, in my opinion, this is a delusional claim.

    The Dak S-400 is precisely "sharpened" by the NATO Air Force, including the F-16.
    I suppose that the "Turkish" S-400 is powerless against the Russian Aerospace Forces.

    Sinop is on the Black Sea, approximately opposite Feodosia.
    The Greeks either have poor geography, or exaggerated ideas about the capabilities of the S-400. But the fact that the Earth is round, they certainly should know?

      Geography is a Greek word and the Greeks have been using this science for several thousand years. And about the capabilities of the S-400:
      “Signs that Turkey has activated radars on its Russian-made S-400 anti-aircraft systems to detect US-made Greek F-16 fighters upon their return from Eunomia on 27 August off the coast of Cyprus appear to have triggered an alarm in Washington. The situation in the Eastern Mediterranean and reportedly provoked the visit of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Cyprus on September 12 and to Greece on September 27-29 According to some Turkish opposition media reports, a general test of the S-400 systems is planned by Ankara near Sinop on the Black Sea. ", - the Greek edition" Kathimerini "informs about it. This is to the one against whom the S-400 will be mainly used.

        If in Sinope, then the S-400 will be more likely to control the Crimea region, rather than the eastern Mediterranean

    The first clarifying question - if Turkey just needs to watch, then why are the missile launchers being transported?
    2nd clarifying question - Turkey can use AWACS aircraft or ask NATO equipment for help. Why drag a missile system?
    But in my opinion, the s-400 is aimed at tracking and monitoring aircraft going from the Russian Federation to Iran in transit to Armenia and the military aviation of the south-west of the Russian Federation
