Hello everybody from Istanbul/Turkey
I bought my first canik one week ago. I am proud of my Turkey’s brand.
Have a nice day all.

This probably deserves a new thread but I did want to at least acknowledge the political tension between the US and Turkey as it is in all of the papers (and not to reflect on our Turkish members here, Lord knows that we don't want to be held responsible for every idiotic thing our US leaders do).

But the basic problem is that the new S400 anti-aircraft system is different than any previous Russian system. Besides the usual evolutionary upgrades to tracking distances and number of targets tracked and anti-jamming features, it is networked and is able to analyze different aircraft signatures far more effectively than before. Since Turkey flies US F16 fighters, they will be constantly tracked (although obviously not targeted) by S400 systems and will produce a trove of F16 data for Russia to analyze. This also explains why Trump has refused to send the very advanced F35 to Turkey now, so that Russia doesn't get access to massive amounts of F35 tracking data as well.

We shall see how this plays out. Any thoughts from our Turkish friends would be appreciated, but we will understand if you refrain.
