Turkey closes in on Su-35 deal after being booted from F-35 program
from Defence Connect
In a move that is set to further tensions between the two nations, particularly between country heads President Donald Trump and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, it’s being reported that “a deal does not appear too distant” for Turkey to purchase the Russian-built jets. Turkey turned to the Su-35 following the U.S's decision to kick the country out of the F-35 program due to their purchasing of a Russian-built S-400 air defence system, which the White House said rendered Turkey’s “continued involvement with the F-35 impossible”.
