There is a fierce battle between Turkey and the US over Russia’s S-400 missile system. Only last year, Turkey bought the first batch of these missile systems from Russia. On this, the Trump administration accepted that it is in the process of making a dent in American security through this system. Only after this did Trump impose many economic sanctions on Turkey. Know, what effect this war between America and Turkey can have on India.
These days Turkey is trying to become the Khalifa of Muslim countries. He is telling every issue that is associated with Muslim countries, whether it is the Kashmir raga of Pakistan, or the battle of Armenia-Azerbaijan. In the midst of this attitude, in 2019, this country gave the deal to Russia for the S-400 missile system and also got the first shipment. America is furious at this. He is sure that he will use it against America. US President Trump himself suspected of taking reconnaissance in the American F-16 fighter jet through this system.

Please tell that Turkey is also a member of NATO and as such it cannot take S-400 system from Russia. This system is seen as a threat to stealth fighters as it does not keep them secret. There were also reports in the past that the Turkish army is reconnaissance of American F-16 fighter plane from this system.Also read: Why Meteorological Department is suddenly increasing its radar network in Ladakh?
These fighter planes are called secret, which no one can track. This is the reason why many countries of the world have bought this aircraft from America. Now, if the Russian S-400 system in such a situation proves that America’s claim of secret aircraft is false, then the American image can be shocked. This is a big reason for America’s anger on Turkey.
Here, on the US sanctions imposed after the first shipment of the system, Turkey says that it had previously talked to the US for the purchase of such a system, but it was forced to deal with Russia after its refusal. It also said that it would not pose any threat to NATO allies.

In the midst of this battle between Turkey and America, India also signed the S-400 deal and its first consignment is going to come in the beginning of 2021. The Trump administration did not object to this purchase of India and now the attitude of the newly elected Biden administration is also being seen.
After all, what is this S-400 system, about which America became so strict on Turkey, and why India needs this system? It is a ground-to-air blower system (SAM). It is considered the world’s deadliest system of its kind, which attacks medium to long distances. It is believed that this system created by Russia is of a higher level than the American defense system.
China works behind the purchase of this great system of India. Actually, China also signed a deal with Russia for its purchase in the year 2015 and its delivery started in the year 2018 as well. It has been considered as a game-changer for China, while it can be dangerous for India. Especially in the present situation in East Ladakh, no challenge can be ruled out.
Almost along with China, India also started talking to buy the system from Russia. The country paid approximately $ 5 billion for a five-fighter jet. It is hoped that its first shipment will reach us soon. Apart from India and China, Turkey not only signed a deal, Iraq and Qatar also showed interest in purchasing the S-400 system.
Due to this purchase, the US arms lobby is going to suffer a direct loss, as well as the benefit of Russia, the US is considering such a deal as a loss. This is the reason why he is furious with Turkey. At the same time it is threatening all those countries which are in defense equipment deal with Russia.
India is avoiding America’s anger and finalizing this deal with Russia, it is because of the Indo-US relationship. At the moment, both countries are seeing China as an enemy. The two countries are great partners to surround it in the Indian-Pacific Ocean. In these conditions, the United States sees an increase in India’s defense equipment as a weapon against China. Now that China itself has the S-400 system, it becomes very important for India to have it. And America has no objection to this.
