Production of T129 ATAK helicopters has stopped...

Thanks to S300V4 for the link!

Turkey's defense industry is gonna take a huge hit because of their decision to pursue the S-400.  But it does bring up another issue.  What happens when you use a weapon to such a degree that people develop countermeasures?

What do I mean?  The tank.  Dominate for awhile then anti-tank missiles were developed.  The battleship.  Once dominate but then overtaken by aircraft carriers.

Sanctions.  They're obviously crippling now, but will there come a time when we see an international black market ran by nation states to subvert them?

I can't help but think we're using this "tool" so often that countermeasures will/are being developed.
