Ismail Demir: Turkish Siper air defense system can surpass the characteristics of Russian S-400 air defense systems
The Siper air defense system being developed by Turkey can surpass the characteristics of the Russian anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) S-400, said the head of the country's defense industry department Ismail Demir. The Sabah newspaper writes about this.
According to Demir, the development of the Siper air defense “is gradually approaching its completion.” “We believe that it will reach the level of the S-400 air defense system or even surpass it,” he said.
In October, Ismail Demir said that within the next few years Turkey will develop its own analogue of the S-400 Triumph … “Now we have HİSAR A + and HİSAR O + air defense systems with a range of up to 20 kilometers. We will create an air defense complex with a range of up to 100 kilometers. After that, we will increase these indicators in the SİPER system. We are gradually moving towards creating an analogue of the S-400, ”he said.
