With the Turkish Ambassador saying that the first components of the Patriot missile systems have arrived and will be in place this morning (Dec. 18), the German’s decided to put several Patriot systems on display back in Germany.  A trio of NATO countries will be supplying the defensive systems and placing them on the Turkish border to protect against a variety of Syrian weapons including chemical weapons.  Check back later at DefenseNews.com for details on the Ambassador’s comments, and see more pictures of the Patriot display after the break.
