“Waste of money”: Turks are unhappy with S-400 air defense systems


Turkey called the purchase of Russian long-range air defense systems S-400 a waste of money. It is reported by the Arab edition of Arabic Defense.


Residents of Turkey are unhappy with the huge costs of acquiring the Russian “useless” S-400 Triumph systems, claiming that authorities threw money away. According to readers of the Yeniça ресурса resource, Erdogan’s purchase of anti-ballistic systems was a fatal mistake, given that currently the systems are still not involved. In addition to losing the contract for the purchase of American F-35 fighters, Ankara continues to face sanctions from overseas.

The Turks planned to put on the alert the Russian S-400 air defense systems in April of this year, however, the military plans were transferred first to May and then to June. However, even now the complexes continue to stand idle. According to several sources, the acquisition of the first batch of Triumph S-400 systems cost Turkey $ 1,3 billion, and the cost of the second was estimated at $ 1,2 billion.

As a result, it turns out that the money was paid, but the country's defense capability did not increase. On the contrary, Ankara has lost modern F-35 fighters, Turks say.

We note from ourselves that Ankara did not pay Moscow $ 1,3 billion, since half of the contract amount is a Russian loan.

    And the "residents of Turkey", apparently, expressed their opinion at the referendum, or were it only a few commentators in the opposition newspaper?

        For Turkey in the camp of its allies you need to fight. The obviously propaganda efforts of the enemies to discredit Russia in the eyes of the Turks, to compromise everything Russian ... The war on the propaganda front became even more important than others ... Under K. Ataturk, the USSR was Turkey's friend for several decades, but the Germans pulled Turkey to their side and unleashed anti-Russian enmity. An example of what propaganda and government actions do ...

    Actually, it’s a brilliant idea to sell Turkey your S-400, and even for free. Wouldn't it be easier to sell them directly to the USA right away? For a detailed study and competent organization then against them the American means of electronic warfare? lol

      Some of yours were sold, maybe for free, and Russian air defense systems were sold on credit, but for money.

    “Waste of money”: Turks are unhappy with S-400 air defense systems

    - Ha, they pay with Russia with tomatoes; bed-tourist places; moreover, and only when they are given loans for this; moreover, as it is already becoming obvious ... - "half of the contract amount" that "is a Russian loan" ... - Turkey will not pay Russia, but will wait for this amount to be "forgiven" ... in the foreseeable future ...

    If the complex is not put on duty, it will not change. This once again characterizes the "authoritative" opinion of certain Turkish readers. Apparently, they believe that the S-400 is such an amulet. Bought it, hung it around your neck - here's your protection. We have enough of such lop-eared people.

    Erdogan bought the Russian S-400 not for military, but for political reasons. He wanted the air defense system to demonstrate emancipation from the United States. He did not expect Turkey to be expelled from the F-35 program and suffer such enormous losses. Now he is at an impasse and has no useful move. Now, if he had an F-35 squadron, Sisi from Egypt would not dare to intervene in Libya. Erdogan spent $ 2,5 billion and did not order anything that would be useful to him in Libya.

            There are such "experts" here who have read "absolutely correct information" from the garbage backyards of the Internet. The main thing is that this "information" is consonant with their moods and the general level of development.

            In just an incomplete year, three “invisible” fighters crashed in the United States: the next - 19.05.20/21/30 at 35:58 local time during the night training flight, the F-XNUMXA, which is part of the XNUMXth air wing, crashed.
            Four days earlier, at the same air base, the F-22 Raptor “invisible” fighter crashed. The disaster occurred on May 15.
            An F-15C fighter crashed in the coastal waters of England, and the pilot died. A few days earlier, the S-130N military transport plane was seriously damaged by crashing into a fence at an airfield in Iraq.
            On the evening of June 30, an accident occurred at Show's airbase in South Carolina involving one of the F-16CM Fighting Falcon fighters belonging to the 20th Air Force fighter wing. The incident happened around 23:30 local time.

          You see, you confused the F-35 with the hyped Russian letak Su-57, which, as it did not fly, does not fly, and what is even sadder - it will never fly. Exactly like the classic of proletarian literature: "Born to crawl cannot fly." laughing

    Just think, the problem is, the Americans proposed to sell them the S-400 and all sanctions will be lifted, and the F-35 will be sold! So if the pigs begin to make brains with all sorts of nasty things, the Turks will sell, or even give the S-400 to the amers.
