If it's from the NS camp only ... then sounds about right, albeit slightly on the lower side.
Can you share a link of the source where Sabir Shakir is supposed to have revealed the amount?

Turkey, Russia close to reaching agreement on Su-35 fighter jet sale

Turkey is close to reaching a deal with Moscow over the purchase of Su-35 fighter jets as well as co-manufacturing some components of the Russian-made jets, Turkish sources said Friday.

Turkish and Russian officials are discussing the details of the sale of a total of 36 Su-35 fighter jets to Turkey, two months after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's visit to the International Aviation and Space Salon (MAKS) aviation show outside of Moscow.

Sources added that officials are also discussing Turkey's possible involvement in the production of some components of the fighter jets, including its precision weapons and ammunition.

At a visit to MAKS-2019 on Aug. 27, Erdoğan was shown the newest generation of Russian stealth aircraft, the Su-57 fighter jet, Su-35 fighter jets, the Ka-52 military helicopter and Mi-38 transport helicopter.

Soon after Erdoğan's visit, Sergei Chemezov, the head of Russia's state-owned manufacturer Rostec, said they would be willing to sell Russia's top air superiority warplane to Turkey if Ankara "expresses the desire."

In this particular case can't say. But in the PAST he has spread unsubstantiated rumors. his credibility is quite low.

Hopefully it is not one of his burping / yawning video rants.

Russia is making a lot of weapons sales in this region recently. Egypt, Iran and now Turkey. Actually I don't think they sold anything to Iran. I was confusing Iran for Turkey.

Turkey provides sub systems for F35, till now Lockheed has produced 5 or 6 F35's for Turkey. SO I wouldn't include Turkey in the Russian camp so soon. The chances of their sabre rattling to die soon, and them moving back to the US camp are very high.

Btw, they need US helicopter engines not only for the Pakistani order, but their own ATAK2 prog as well. Plus they are one of the biggest users of F16's, IF critical support was pulled for them, their Air Force would be seriously handicapped.
