Turkey has successfully tested air — to-air missiles, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on his Twitter page on April 14.

According to him, the country has become the owner of the technology of this category of missiles among the few states.

"The Bozdogan air — to-air missile, developed by our young engineers as part of the GÖKTUĞ project, hit the target with the first shot," the politician said.

In October 2020, Turkey reported on the ongoing verification and preparation for the deployment of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems acquired from Russia. On October 16, Turkey tested the complexes for the first time during exercises in the north of the country. Three launches were made, and the missiles successfully hit the intended targets.

Deliveries of S-400s to Ankara began in mid-June 2019, which led to a crisis in relations between Turkey and the United States, which opposes the acquisition of weapons by the NATO country from Moscow.
