Process of S-400 Delivery to Turkey Goes Smoothly: Rostec

In November 2016 reports said that Turkey will purchase Russia's S-400 missile defense systems.

In December, the State Department approved the sale of a $3.5 billion US Patriot missile defense system to Turkey.

The Pentagon warned that should Turkey move ahead with its purchase of a Russian-made air defense system there would be "grave consequences" for Ankara, Trend reported citing The Hill.

"We concluded the S-400 issue, signed a deal with the Russians and will start co-production...later, we may work with S-500s", Mr Erdogan told Turkish media this week.

"'How can Turkey trust this supplier, who is threatening not to deliver F-35s, and buy Patriots after canceling its purchase of the Russian S-400s?" wrote a columnist in Hurriyet Daily News, Turkey's leading newspaper.

The comments came a few days after U.S. European Command head Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti said it would be his best military advice to bar Turkey from getting the F-35, should they continue on the path of procuring the S-400. But U.S. officials have expressed concerns that the S-400 could be used to gather information on the advanced aircraft.

Akar added starting this October, the S-400 systems will be installed in Turkey, adding that the Turkish Air Force is working on where to deploy the missiles.

By continuing the deal despite the Pentagon's first direct warning, Ankara will risk its membership in the Joint Strike Fighter program that it joined in 2002, and at least 100 F-35 fighters on order from the United States.

While the United States maintains global military superiority over Russia, evolving Russian capabilities threaten to erode our competitive military advantage, challenge our ability to operate uncontested in all domains and diminish our ability to deter Russian aggression.

It cited the country's economic development, suggesting the decision was not political, but it first announced a review of Turkey's eligibility after Ankara set retaliatory tariffs on USA goods at the height of their dispute past year. Created to stop enemy aircraft, drones, cruise and ballistic missiles, the S-400 is the most advanced mobile air defence system in Moscow's arsenal.

Within the framework of the Astana agreements, Turkey now holds 12 ceasefire observatory points in Idlib's de-escalation zone while Russian Federation has 10 points.

If it goes ahead with the Russian deal, Turkey also risks losing delivery of Lockheed Martin F-35 stealth fighter jets and could face sanctions under a US law known as Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).

He also stated that all public or private companies involved in the purchase of the S-400 system could be subject to potential sanctions under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).
