First deployment site of Russia's S-400s revealed - media

The Russian-made S-400s purchased by Turkey would first be deployed at the Mürted Air Base, formerly known as Akinci Air Base, located northwest of Ankara, Yeni Safak reported, citing military sources.

According to the media outlet, the base will become the main centre for the dispatch of Russian air defences, but later the S-400s may be moved to other regions.

In addition, the Ministry of National Defence and the General Staff are planning to send a delegation of 100 people to Azerbaijan to examine S-300 PMU2 missile defence systems this year, before heading to Russia where Turkish troops will be trained to operate the S-400s ahead of the system’s deployment by October.
