Turkish F-16 jets will use the 'chaff' system in case of attack from Russian S-400 missile defence system, according to Batuhan Yaşar, a columnist at the Turkish daily Türkiye Gazetesi.
Chaff is a countermeasure in which an aircraft spreads a cloud of tiny and thin pieces of aluminum, which appear as a cluster of primary targets on radar screens.
In his column, Yaşar said that the S-400 missiles pose a threat for the Turkish F-16 jets and said that in case of an attack, the jets can evade the missiles with a system called 'chaff.'
Yaşar also pointed out that Russian jets were equipped with air-to-air missile systems after the Russian warplane was shot down, and that Turkish jets could evade these missiles with flares similar to chaff.
"We hope that none of these will be needed," he concluded.
