Tensions between Turkey and the United States are running high over Ankara's decision to buy the S-400 missile defences, which are not compatible with NATO systems. U.S. officials say Turkey's planned purchase would jeopardise its role in building F-35 fighter jets as well as its purchase of the aircraft, which Washington says would be compromised by the presence of the S-400s. The United States and other NATO allies that own F-35s fear the radar on the system will learn how to spot and track the jet, making it less able to evade Russian weapons.
