$2.5 billion parcel arrives? Turkey receives the S-400 missile system they purchased from Russia

"Turkey's $2.5 billion purchase of the S-400 missile battery from Russia, was delivered to the airbase in Turkey, near Ankara, and was documented for the cameras. The high tech missile system is an upgraded variant of the S-300 system. "

"Turkey has paid Russia $2.5 billion for the hi-tech S-400 battery (which includes missile launchers as well as radar and command trucks), which could be considered relatively inexpensive for state of the art weaponry. However, the costs to the relationship with the US could be considered higher, as it may result in Turkey losing access to the American F-35 program, in which Turkey have already invested more than $1 billion."
