Now why would anyone near Russia suddenly want additional air defense? -Pt 2

A week ago I noted that no one should be surprised that anyone in Mother Russia’s neighborhood might suddenly have increased interest in air defense. Poland finally agreed to basing US missile interceptors on its soil, and part of the deal was the basing of Patriot batteries there, too.

Now, the Turks are getting in on the “beef up air defense” game, having just agreed to a $100 million dollar deal with Ukraine and Belarus for SA-12, SA-10, and SA-15 systems.

They won’t be the last ones we hear about buying increased AA capability.


  1. not the smartest idea as these are russian designed systems and thus the Russians know the flaws best.

    Should have gone with another countries stuff.
