(CNN)The first shipment of the Russian-made S-400 air defense missile system has landed in Ankara, in a move that sets up a potential showdown between Turkey and the United States.

The equipment arrived at the Murted Air Base on Friday, according to the Turkish Defense Ministry.

Another plane is due to fly to Turkey with a second batch of equipment in the near future, a military-diplomatic source told Russia's state-run TASS news agency. That source added that a third delivery, carrying over "120 anti-aircraft missiles of various types" will be delivered "tentatively at the end of the summer, by sea."

TASS also quoted the source saying that Turkish S-400 operators will travel to Russia for training in July and August. About 20 Turkish servicemen underwent training at a Russian training center in May and June, according to the source.

4. I'd put this on Turkey....buying non-NATO approved gear...

...the S-400 is incompatible with the wider Nato air-defense system in the region.
And giving Russian technicians a easy way to access and determine the F-35's vulnerabilities.

5. And Trumps inability to talk with a country that hates the bear worse than ...

us and who've cooperated with the US and NATO in dealing with it is the mother of this fuck up.

The F-35 has been nothing but trouble since the Reagan Administration.

7. If Turkey hated Russia so much they wouldn't be buying the S-400 system.

And the current users of the F35 seem pretty happy with it, otherwise they wouldn't buy it.

8. Because we forced to him to either do it or look weak to Turks. Who's missiles ...

would be most likely he would need an ABM system for - Nato's?

You should read about Siad Barre the last real leader of Somalia who changed arms dealers between the US and the USSR almost yearly.

Russian ABM systems go up and they can come back down again.

9. NATO has rules about weapons you need to have, they have to be NATO compatible.

Not new news to Turkey. And I doubt NATO is going to be firing ballistic missiles at Turkey anytime soon.
