While Turkish army has begun to receive indigenous surface-to-air missile systems, it continues to buy them from abroad as well. Ukrainian officials have confirmed that Turkey bought S-125 missiles. Having been produced since 1961, the Soviet type missile system has been modernized by Ukraine in recent years. It was also renamed as S-125-2D Pechora. S-125s has a range of 40 km and fly at 18 km altitude. Analysts estimate that they were deployed to Syria and Libya by Turkish army.
Turkish army has also Russia-made S-400 and US-made Jupiter missiles in its inventory. It aims to end dependency to foreign countries for all layers of air defense by 2027.
