For a while, Turkiye has been doing extensive work to develop a long-range air defence system. The country aims to establish a layered-air defence umbrella to protect all sizes of military units, critical infrastructure and government buildings. The importance of such an umbrella was seen during Russo-Ukraine War. Russia is concentrating primarily on missile assaults on the energy infrastructure of the Ukrainian side.
