Turkey tested Russian-made S-400 air defense systems on US-made F-16 fighter jets in November, Russia’s news agency TASS reported, citing an unnamed source, according to Alarabiya.

Fighter Jets World, a military aviation website that tracks news about fighter jets, reportedly published a video from 2019 by Turkey’s TRT channel showing the missile systems being tested on the US-made fighter aircraft, according to TASS.
