* A Russian cargo jet touched down at Murted Air Base outside Ankara on Friday
* The delivery of Russian-made S-400 missile parts could anger Washington
* Turkey had been warned not to purchase the new systems by the U.S.
* Washington fears the technology could compromise their F-35 stealth fighters
Russian-made S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems were delivered to Turkey on Friday after Washington warned they would face sanctions for the purchase.
The U.S. said that Turkey’s procurement of the hardware would run counter to its membership of NATO, in the latest issue between the two countries after they clashed over the Syrian conflict.
A Russian Air Force AN-124 cargo jet delivered the S-400 consignment to the Murted Air Base outside the capital Ankara.
Washington believes the new Russian technology could compromise its F-35 stealth fighter jets, an aircraft Turkey is helping to build and to buy.
