    " Russia is ready for holding negotiations with Turkey on the possible delivery of Su-35 and Su-57 fighter aircraft, if it receives the corresponding request, Spokesperson for Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Valeria Reshetnikova said on Friday.

    "As for Ankara’s potential plans of purchasing Russian Su-35 and Su-57 fighters, it should be noted that the Turkish side has been informed about their technical specifications in full. If there is a request from Turkey for these planes, we are ready for negotiations on this issue," the spokesperson said.

    "The Turkish side has for quite long stated its intention to implement the project of developing its own TF-X fifth-generation fighter. Russia earlier indicated that it was ready to consider the possibility of cooperation under this program. However, we have not received the corresponding request from Ankara so far," Reshetnikova added."


    Ironically I will take interest in the TAI-TFX if they grab the lifeline being offered by Russia lol!

    Turkey's Military and Politics - Page 3 Empty Soft power Coup happening in Turkey

    Post  par far Sat May 22, 2021 7:05 pm

    Apparently there is a mafia boss that is spilling the beans on Erdogan.

    This mafia boss is more than likely a US deep state agent.

    Erdogan is an idiot but he is an idiot that Russia has some control over.

    Should Russia be worried who may come into power in Turkey because they will be US controlled puppets?

    NATzO will not get extra power from deeper control of Turkey.   That was the status quo before the failed coup against Erdogan for starting to
    leave the plantation.

    American war planners are imbeciles.   They think the following gems of self-delusional inanity:

    1) Russia can be defeated with a conventional war.

    2) Russia will not use nuclear weapons to stop a NATzO invasion.

    3) Control of limitrophe toilet failed states gives NATzO some massive military advantage.  

    Most of these turds of wisdom are the result of never having to really fight a war and instead endless colonial adventures to
    beat up helpless victims.    This is why Americans always scoff at Russian technological capability in any area.   This the
    king with no clothes complex of thinking you are exceptional and infallible without ever having to actually prove either.

    Turkey's Military and Politics - Page 3 Empty Istanbul Canal threat to Russian Black Sea security?

    Post  Firebird Sat Jun 05, 2021 5:32 pm

    What do people think about Turkey's plan for a canal into the Black Sea from the Med?

    The theory/claim is that Turkey and the canal would not be subject to the Montreux Convention on naval shipping restrictions eg far more tonnage and aircraft carriers being allowed into the Black Sea by America/NATO powers etc?

    Is it likely that NATO powers might not honour the Montreux Convention with it?
    What should Russia do, if that is a possibility?
    Should Russia say "enough is enough" and let Turkey fragment, as would most likely happen in a civil war?
    Clearly Turkey IS too big for its boots, and as two faced as Janus the Roman God.

    Montreux convention is about the black sea and not the canals from where ships comes.

    That won't change it.

    Btw, US carriers in the black sea are a threat for Turkey not Russia that can send them to the bottom in matter of few minutes.
