    Sorry, but I'm all about Turkey. Threats to Turkey.
    Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that in case of violation of the country's air borders, the answer will be the same as in the incident with the downed Russian Su-24 bomber.
    "If today exactly the same violation of our air borders happens, we are able to give the same answer," he said at a meeting of heads of village administrations in Ankara on Thursday.

    Double standards.

    According to the General Staff of the Greek Air Force, in 2014, 1 thousand 269 airspace violations were recorded, including 14 flights over the territory of Greece. For ten months of 2015, from January to October, 1 thousand 233 violations were recorded. Including there were 31 flights over the territory of Greece.

    Within the framework of the Armenian-Turkish treaty, Russia provides air defense of Armenia and has reason to shoot down Turkish helicopters.
    Earlier it was reported that on October 6 and 7, Turkish military transport helicopters violated the airspace of Armenia within two to four minutes. Air traffic controllers contacted their Turkish counterparts who attributed the incident to bad weather conditions.

    The length of the Armenian-Turkish border is 345 km.

      Yes, normal cars .. although V, P and even better VP would be preferable, but the design bureau "accompanied", and IAI .. there "put a hand" wink
      And to drive the "spirits" .. it will go .. it is true to change the YakB on the GSh .. it would be worth drinks
