 Turkish soldiers go to Russia for S-400 training and deliver the system in July next year


Reference News Network reported on March 15 that Turkish soldiers will begin training in the S-400 long-range air defense missile system this summer as part of a $2.5 billion arms deal between Ankara and Moscow, the Times website reported on March 13. The deal opened a rift at the heart of the NATO alliance.

According to the Dawn newspaper, a Turkish newspaper closely related to President Erdogans government, 100 Turkish soldiers will soon travel to Azerbaijani to train with the Armys S-300 long-range air defense system, which Azerbaijani purchased from Russia in 2017.

They will then travel to Russia in the late summer to receive training using the Russian S-400 system and return to Turkey in January next year. The S-400 missile system is scheduled to be delivered to Turkey in July next year and put into operation in October.
