Turkey has a choice: to buy C-400 from Russia or from America - F-35
The United States does not abandon its attempts to force Turkey to abandon the purchase of the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia. The Pentagon sent to the Congress an explanatory note detailing all the details of the loud conflict. The US military is proposing that lawmakers finally exclude Turkey from the creation of the F-35, if it does not abandon the Russian Triumph S-400 air defense system.
"Despite the fact that Turkey is an important partner of the program and has invested more than $ 1.25 billion in it after 2002,” the two-page document says, «the administration will have to reconsider Turkey’s ongoing participation as one of eight program participants, if it does not refuse from buying a C-400".
The Turkish government has repeatedly publicly announced the completion of the transaction for the supply of Russian S-400 Triumf missiles with the delivery of the first missiles in July 2019. However, this did not force Ankara to abandon the desire to buy the latest F-35 fighter from the USA, in the creation of which ten Turkish companies participate. They supply such important details as the central part of the fuselage, landing gear, etc. Moreover, some parts, for example, the display in the cockpit, except for Turkish companies, no one does. In the case of exclusion of Turkish companies from the project, the Pentagon will have to urgently look for new suppliers, which will not be easy to do.
However, the US Department of Defense and the State Department seem to be determined. It seems that the Americans are tired of persuading Recep Tayyip Erdogan to abandon the Russian missiles and they decided to move from words and threats to action.
Ankara has so far confirmed its intention to buy 30 of the newest American fighter jets, although it had previously planned to purchase a hundred aircraft. Naturally, in the case of deliveries of Russian missiles, the Turks will have to forget about American fighters.
The head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Mevl? Cаvusoglu, said in November in Washington that Turkey had always wanted to buy American Patriot missiles, but had no understanding from Washington. He stressed that the issue with the Russian anti-aircraft missile systems had already been finally resolved and closed, but added that Ankara wants to buy military equipment and weapons from America, including Patriot missiles.
"The current deal has already been completed,” Cavusoglu told journalists. «I cannot cancel it.” But I need more. I would prefer to buy weapons from the allies".
Despite the apparent cooling of relations between Ankara and Washington, Turkey, the Pentagon’s explanatory note emphasizes, remains America’s most important ally and partner due to its unique position on NATO’s southeastern flank, in which over two thousand American troops and dozens of military infrastructure are located. way airborne. The document also states that, in addition to the exclusion from the F-35 program, Turkey also risks to «earn” American sanctions in case of the purchase of Russian missiles. As for the American military equipment, besides the F-35 itself, the deliveries of the CH-47F Chinook and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, as well as the F-16 fighters, will also be in danger.
