Turkey and Russia have signed a contract for the purchase of two S-400 missile defense systems, one of which will be optional, with the first system’s delivery planned in 2019, Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli said Wednesday.



Canikli also said Turkey had received bids last Friday for the production of 500 domestically-made Altay battle tanks, of which 250 are optional.

Speaking to parliament’s budget commission, the defense minister said the tender would be finalized in the coming days. The domestic Altay tank project is worth an estimated 7 billion euros ($8.24 billion).

The minister also touched upon the NATO’s “enermy chart” scandal during a drill exercise in Norway, saying this disgrace would not be left unanswered.
