S-400 missile defense systems will be entirely managed by Turkish military

The Turkish defense ministry said Friday that the S-400 missile systems will be entirely under the control of the Turkish Armed Forces as Turkey and Russia signed a $2.5 billion deal for the purchase of the systems, Daily Sabah reports.

The undersecretariat of the defense ministry said in a statement that the system will be able to function without any connection to an external power and will be managed by Turkish personnel, rather than Russian advisors.

The statement said Turkey will buy two S-400 surface-to-air missile batteries from Russia under an accord signed, with the first delivery planned for the first quarter of 2020.
