Or to make sure that Erdogan will not make any crazy move similar to Su-24 shotdown; Su-30SM first and foremost is a fighter and Turkish fighters have to think twice before touching it.
Personally I would like to see some Vietnamese Su-30SM equivalents.
They could waste one more if the they wanted, maybe they will need to plan it more thoroughly but there's hardly anything that makes the Su-30SM untouchable from Turkey's arsenal. It's just that the response will be their air bases getting politely bombed.
