    Turkey cancelled its T-Loramids air defence project a month ago in favor of developing an indigenous air defence system. The indigenous system Hisar-U system will take about a decade to build and be delivered. Turkey urgently needs improved air defence and BMD capabilities and will there for go for a stop-gap solution. Turkey will most likely purchase either the Patriot or Aster 30 system. Turkey will most likely purchase 2 systems. After the order is placed they will take between 30-40 months to arrive.

    I don't know what they mean by two systems but here is some information on how we do it the U.S.:

    Each Fire Unit consists of up to 16 M901 Launching Stations with a total of 64 PAC-2 Missiles [or four times that number of PAC-3], along with an Antenna Mast Group, a Radar Set AN/MPQ-53 phased array, an Electric Power Plant, and an AN/MSQ-104 Engagement Control Station.

    Each US Army Patriot battalion consists of four firing units [batteries] doctrinally armed with six launchers. Each launcher is either Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC)-2 capable or PAC-3 capable, the difference being in numberand type of missiles or interceptors that it can fire. PAC-3 launchers are capable of holding four PAC-3 pods, each of which holds four PAC-3 interceptors. PAC-2 launchers are capable of holding four PAC-2 pods, each of which holds one PAC-2 interceptor. In total, a battery fully armed with PAC-3 launchers and PAC-3 interceptors could ideally control a total of 96 interceptors, whereas a fully PAC-2 armed battery could control a total of 24 interceptors.

    ''System'' in this case probably means battery,so two batteries.
    I read somewhere that it will be the SAMP/T with Aster 30 block 1 missiles from Italy.
