    The S400 is a game changer in the Middle East. Turkey currently does not ha ve ground to air effective systems. This will change status.

    At the rate that Erdogan is destroying Turkey, Turkey could be gone, by 2019. No Russian air-defence system is going to save this situation.

      @ Charles Smyth,

      What makes you think that Erdogan is gentleman enough to refrain from the historic ploy utilized by so many madmen, dictators and other such unsavory characters throughout history, as a means of holding onto power; start fires, the bigger the better!!?!?

    Turkey must not trust Nato, not after the attempted coup, that move shows Erdogan that Nato wants him out and a US puppet in.

        I greatly appreciate your opinion, though have to say that camel references sometimes can be quite amusing.

        Free speech is a wild animal.

    Proliferationat its best.
    Turkey is a Nato country if you like it or not. So be sure that the S400 will be reverse engineered by Nato engineers.

    In cold war even plain diesel generators were to be destroyed before they fall into enemy hands. Manual reads where to put the explosives…
    So much stupidity on proliferating tech to the Nato is fascinating.
