"The fact that the C-400 is not incorporated into NATO's air defense system, because, I believe, from Western manufacturers more chance" — leads to "Interfax", the words of Ivanovo.

According to him, the tender for the supply of air defense systems in Turkey will be held in late.

"The tender is about — until the end of July — has to go," — said the salting.

Meanwhile Rosoboronexport spokesman told reporters on Mon, that our homeland will not deliver S-400 "Triumph" for export to the full gratification of needs of the Russian army.

As you know, NATO has placed defense radar in Turkey, but the funds of the European missile defense system on the territory of the country do not. The newspaper "Sabah" shows that the need for having long-range missiles has become trivial in 1991 with the start of U.S. military operations against Iraq.

After much persuasion, NATO temporarily situated in Turkey's Patriot air defense system to protect against possible missile attacks on areas of the country by Iraqi missiles "Scud", the newspaper said.

Director general said that the need for the S-400 Russian army is very great, and the production capacity of companies Concern PVO "Almaz-Antey" one hundred percent loaded. Because in the coming years supply of export S-400 is unlikely.

"At the same time, niche distant air defense is very critical, and we must not lose sight of her. At this point we have a "Antey-2500", — said Isaykin.

He noted that Rosoboronexport will vigorously promote the system on the outdoor market.
