Russian S-400s were criticized in Turkey ... for the first time.

Turkey was extremely dissatisfied with the conclusion of a contract with Russia for the supply of Triumph S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to the country. Information on this subject was voiced by the head of the Turkish Defense Industry Secretariat Ismail Demir, stressing that they were not ready for such a thing in Ankara.

The key problem, according to Turkey, is Russia's artificial delay in the transfer of technology for the Russian Triumph S-400 air defense systems.

“We are planning a schedule for next year. Unlike the first [batch], there is co-production and technology transfer. This goes beyond “let's quickly buy and install” the first system, ” Ismail Demir said in a statement.

Experts, in turn, note that the transfer of technology for the Russian S-400 Triumph air defense systems is extremely undesirable for Russia, since in this case key partners will be forced to refuse to purchase such air defense / missile defense systems.

“If NATO gets the S-400 technology, then no country will want to buy these systems anymore, because in this case, countermeasures will be quickly worked out. It is possible that interest in the Russian Triumphs will disappear sharply , ”the analyst notes.
