#1 ...Always the possibility that the damned things don't work.

#2 So Russia and the United States are both using Syria as a proving ground for their weapons system. Pencilneck should demand they pay a fee for this service.

#3 It is therefore of great importance for Russia to know how the S-400 performed against a NATO member’s F-16s.

Turkey knows Egypt has F-16s.

#4 I don't think Yip-Yip will deploy them to Libya. He's only using mercs and Syrian Jihadis

#5, Egypt.

Turkey’s far more advanced high-altitude S-400s haven’t been activated and the prospect of transferring those sophisticated missiles – which could establish a game-changing Anti Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) zone over wherever they are deployed – to Libya “is out of question.”

#6 And no info on how they work on F-22/F-35's

#7 S-400 isn't going to show up anywhere it might get beat by stealth fighters. That would be muy too bad for future sales.

#8 That would be muy too bad for future sales.

Kind of like how the T-72's and BMP's fared against the M1 Abrams during the first Gulf War.

#9 So they’re putting up Turkish-run S-400s against Turkish-flown F16s after the Gulenist purges? That’s definitely a real-world test.
