Ankara has put forward conditions for the further purchase of the S-400 air defense system to Moscow


Turkey is ready to buy a second set of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia, if the Kremlin agrees to share the relevant technology... Ismail Demir, head of the secretariat of the defense industry of the Republic of Turkey, stated this.


Demir noted that Ankara does not yet see the risk of additional sanctions from Washington and is ready for further purchases of Russian weapons, but the Turks need not just air defense systems, but also related military technologies.

Co-production and technology transfer are important to us

- stressed the head of the secretariat (he was quoted by CNN Turk), outlining requirements from Turkey for further purchases of S-400.

According to Demir, the weapons systems received earlier are ready for operation and can be used at any time as soon as the need arises. In addition, Turkish enterprises continue to implement a program for the production of American fifth-generation F-35 fighters, despite the White House's decision to remove Turkish partners from joint work on the fighter - the overseas "well-wishers" wanted to punish the obstinate Turks for buying Russian defense systems.

In December, the head of the Turkish defense department, Akar Hulusi, noted the need for Turkey to acquire Russian weapons, since European countries refused to supply Ankara with air defense systems.

      This is how all buyers act, not only Turkey, for example, India squeezes out to the full, right up to the transfer of full licenses for its production. The seller needs to preserve his interests, perhaps transfer these S-400s, if the output is better, as with the S-500 ...

        Everyone acts, but Turkey is not the case, not today and never at all ...
        S-400 deliveries in general did not provide for any kind of military-technical integration with Turkey.
        A purely political action with mutual benefit.

    Even if they didn't set conditions, they shouldn't sell at all. Erdogan proved by his behavior that he has cockroaches in his head and what he planned and what he will do, he himself does not know how cockroaches whisper.

      Exactly!
      My cockroaches whispered to me that in no case should technology be transferred to Turkey, unless with a note:
      - modify with a file!

    As an exchange of technologies, Russia is ready to participate, together with Turkey, in the production of F-35 aircraft and components for them.

      The exchange would come out unequal - the Turks produce only 6-7% of the total number of F-35 components.

        The American taxpayer will breathe deeply freely if the unbearable burden of this costly and militarily useless whim of the American oligarchs is partially removed from his shoulders.

        By the way, it is also time for your rulers suffering from military psychosis to ease the overwhelming burden of the people for military needs. smile

            Why should you rejoice?
            Again, you will lick Arab sneakers, as in the days of Abama.
            The issue of reconciliation with Iran has already been resolved as the first anti-Trump action of the new Washington regime. wink

                  The Israelis beat the Arabs repeatedly in the past, despite the quantitative and qualitative superiority of the Arab armies, as well as the active aid and support of the Arabs from the USSR. Today, when those "progressive Arab regimes" and the USSR itself are no longer there, and the combat power of the IDF is incomparably greater than before, Israel's enemies have zero chances of victory. Where is the bravado and naivety here?

    Turks, however, like most other countries, strive to develop their defense potential. What they cannot produce themselves, they try to buy abroad, cooperate with other countries, for example, with Pakistan. In December, they announced a successful test of their air defense system.



    Sites of companies, project participants:
    https://www.roketsan.com.tr
    https://www.aselsan.com.tr

    Ships willingly acquire technology from Russia, the success of the Turks is not so impressive. All these are elements of bargaining, they say do not sell, we will do it ourselves. It is difficult to judge what exactly is worth selling to the Turks and what is not. For this, there are competent specialists with reliable information. We have little information on this area for this. And you have to look at the problem as a whole. For example, it is worth paying close attention to cooperation with the same Pakistan. The country has nuclear weapons, and the economy is still more difficult than that of Erdogan. No matter how they share the relevant technologies with Turkish "brothers in faith".

    As for this particular case, I suppose you should not spoil the sons of Turkish subjects, let them themselves gnaw the granite of science.

    So the United States therefore refused to sell them the Patriots, since the Turks demanded the transfer of technology to directly destroy the missile. Now let's see how Russia will react to such a demand. Although loot often wins out common sense.

    We need to soberly and adequately look at this situation, it is absolutely unreasonable and short-sighted to sell to the Turks critical technologies for the production of the S-400, we will earn a little now, but in the future we will lose a hundredfold, the transfer of technology is not profitable for us either economically or geopolitically, for the most we can agree that this is the organization of a licensed assembly of units and components produced in Russia !!!

    The Russian Federation should not sell the latest weapons systems such as the S-400 to NATO Turkey, because they can be used against the Russian Federation itself.
