Delivery of second S-400 battery to Turkey completed: Defense Ministry

Turkey’s Defense Ministry says the delivery of the second battery of the advanced Russian-made S-400 missile defense systems has been completed, and that the systems would become operational in April 2020.

The ministry announced in a statement that the delivery process was finished at Murted Airfield Command, on Sunday.  But the training of Turkish personnel was still ongoing.

The second part of the shipments began on August 27. The first part of the S-400 delivery was completed in late July. Russia delivered 30 planeloads of S-400 hardware and equipment – as part of the initial batch – to Murted Airfield Command.
