"The contract has been finalized, but the issue of a loan remains as funds have to be agreed," he said at the 8th International Maritime Defense Show in St. Petersburg.

Rostec International Cooperation and Regional Policy Department Chief Viktor Kladov earlier told TASS that Russia and Turkey had agreed on the technical issues of the delivery of S-400 missiles.

He said, however, that the contract had not been signed yet and the sides were discussing the non-technical terms of the deal. "There are commercial, monetary, financial and political issues," Kladov said.

The S-400 Triumf is a long-range antiaircraft missile system that became operational in 2007. It is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range missiles, and can also be used against ground objects. Russian Aerospace Forces Deputy Commander-in-Chief Viktor Gumenny said in April that missiles capable of destroying targets in outer space had started arriving for the S-400 systems.

The S-400 Triumf uses the 9M96E and 9M96E2 missiles. The S-400 Triumph can also use the 48N6E missile of the S-300 PMU-1 system and 48N6E2 missiles of the S-300 PMU-2 Favorit system. The S-400 missile has a maximum range of 400 km and can hit all air targets wit high accuracy.
