Unlike S-400, US-Made Patriot Doesn't Meet Turkey's Defence Needs – Ret. Gen. | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Unlike S-400, US-Made Patriot Doesn't Meet Turkey's Defence Needs – Ret. Gen.

Turkey is determined to acquire Russian-made S-400 SAMs despite US threats, says Erdogan Karakus, a retired Turkish Air Force lieutenant-general, explaining why Ankara does not consider the US' MIM-104 Patriot system to be a substitute for the S-400.

The US and NATO are continuing to exert pressure on Turkey over its planned acquisition of S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft missile systems, arguing that the weapon is incompatible with the NATO missile defence system and poses a security threat to the bloc.
