Its a good and terrible news at the same for us.

CAATSA was made for the Middle East. To prevent Middle Eastern countries from engaging with Russia. Many of them were even blackmailing the US.


So this is gonna be a wake up call to them.

As for India, it's not really gonna affect us. But it will be really interesting to see what Turkey will do about it. At the very least, with the exception of the F-35, it won't affect their previous deals with the US, like the F-16s.

Otoh...
One of the people familiar with the US plans said the sanctions were being crafted to be “as mild as possible” to neutralise anger towards Mr Erdogan in Congress while avoiding serious damage to the extensive US-Turkey military relationship.

DRDO needs to accelerate the XR-SAM project, if there exists one and maybe we can even cut short the S400 orders. Russia ain't no Soviet Union. We need to reduce our over dependence on them.

Meanwhile USA offering co-development of BMD systems will be a welcome alternative.
