    Retired PVO Colonel Mikhail Khodarenok said that Turkey's recent test of the S-400 involved its 91N6E, 92N6E, and 96L6E radars and 2 F-16, an F-4, and helicopters flying continuously for 8 hours from various directions

    According to his sources, the S-400's radars surpassed Turkey's expectations. He said Turkey's 1st S-400 regiment has a Russian-made ground-based interrogator and Turkish crypto to work with the NATO Mark XII IFF system, but this would be replaced by one made by ASELSAN

    The 2nd S-400 regiment was also supposed to receive a Turkish-made ground-based interrogator by ASELSAN, but Khodarenok says that Turkey's specialists thought the Russian-made system worked so well that they might be happy with it instead of a Turkish-made version

    Turkey Nears Russia Missile-Production Deal After NATO Warnings

    Turkey’s set to sign an agreement with Russia to jointly produce missiles and receive know-how to develop its own defense systems, a step that could boost criticism from its NATO partners that Ankara is moving away from the bloc.

    We will sign a deal after agreeing over final details regarding joint production or production of some parts in Turkey, and technology sharing,” said Ismail Demir, head of Turkey’s top defense procurement body, known as SSB.

    The talks are part of Turkey’s deal to purchase a second S-400 missile-defense system from Russia and have reached a “quite ripe” stage, Demir said on Friday in Ankara. “The signing of a deal is just around the corner,” he said.

    This could only be a problem for NATO if Russia is the enemy, which they keep saying they aren't... which can only be good for both Turkey and Russia.

    The Turkish military industry is quite advanced in a lot of areas and this sort of cooperation will boost it rather further, while for Russia ties and sales to Turkey are good for trade and relations between these two practically neighbouring countries.

    Simple rule of thumb... if Washington or London or Brussels are not happy then it is clearly the right thing to do...

    Amazing what people upload on the internet. The gif at the link shows the effective area covered by the S-400 ar various heights.

    So I made a thing...

    Radar range for the #S400 located at Mürted Akinci AB, in #Turkey.

    The S-400 is an impressive system, significantly bolstering Ankara's Air Defense capabilities. Costly though, both politically and financially.

    But the picture for a single Patriot battery would only cover 120 degrees and rather shorter ranges too...

    If you have four S-400 batteries spaced out around the country to minimise the overlap of coverage the performance would be eye watering... and if you tie in the national radar network coverage would be extensive...
