Turkey’s move to purchase the S-400 air defense system sparked a negative reaction from NATO. The alliance, of which Turkey is a member, warned that the purchase posed a real risk to allied aircraft.

Last year, the United States (US) excluded Turkey from the fifth-generation F-35 fighter jet program, after Ankara received the first batch of the Russian-made surface-to-air missile system.

In August, Alexander Mikheyev, CEO of Rosoboronexport, a Russian state-owned company that sells weapons, said Turkey had signed a contract for the delivery of the second batch of S-400s.

Russia announced in September 2017 that it had signed a $ 2.5 billion deal with Turkey for the delivery of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system to Ankara.

Under the contract, Turkey received a regiment of S-400 air defense missile systems (two battalions). The deal includes the transfer of some production technology to Turkey.
