Turkey Could Receive THAAD
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Turkey could receive an advanced U.S. upper tier
missile defense system as part of NATO's effort to counter Iran.
A leading American missile defense lobbyist said Turkey could receive
the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense from the United States as part of
NATO's missile defense shield. Riki Ellison, chairman of the Missile Defense
Advocacy Alliance, said THAAD, produced by Lockheed Martin, would be
enhanced by long-range AN/TPY-2 forward-based X-Band radars.
