Turkey To Conduct Major Test Of Russian S-400 Systems Despite US Sanctions Threat

Long after the Trump administration indefinitely suspended deliveries of Lockheed Martin's advanced stealth F-35 fighter to Turkey over its controversial deal with Russia to obtained the S-400 missile defense system, Ankara is ready to go 'live' with its Russian anti-air missiles in a comprehensive test.

Turkey was officially and finally kicked out of the F-35 program in summer of 2019, also amid threats of sanctions from Washington, as it was feared Russia could use the S-400 and its radar to obtain valuable and secret information from its Turkish partner on the Lockheed stealth fighter. This unwavering stance cost the United States at least half a billion dollars, according to reports at the time.
