Turkey, fearing new US sanctions because of the purchase of the Triumph C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems (ZRS) from Russia, has accumulated spare parts for its own fourth-generation American-made F-16 Viper fighter jets, The Drive reports.
The publication notes that Ankara has approximately 245 F-16 Viper aircraft at its disposal. In addition to components for such fighters, Turkey purchased parts of other "unnamed military systems."
In April, the German publication Stern called the S-400 “Triumph” a “nightmare for NATO”.
Earlier in the month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Moscow could deliver Ankara S-400 "Triumph" until July.
The agreement on the supply of four divisions S-400 to Ankara was reached in September 2017. The contract value is $ 2.5 billion, but half of this amount will be covered by a Russian loan. It was reported that the installation of missile defense systems could begin in October 2019.
Also, buyers of the S-400 "Triumph" are China and India.
