Actually the US also claims quite often their systems are more effective than they actually are. The patriot being the prime example. THe S-400 is a better system than the patriot, simple as that.
of recent evidence - there is actually serioss doubt as to whether the patriot hit anything other than allied aircraft in GW1
The agreement, signed by the leaders of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and Egypt at a summit meeting in Prague, centers on the 2,000-mile Nabucco pipeline, which would bring Central Asian gas to Europe without passing through Russian territory.
Whatever the direct anologies that can be drawn between their specifications just the mobility of the S-300 family would make my choice certain. As for the claim that the S-300 family ( S-400) isn't or wasn't designed with BMD in mind i have in the past provided a great deal of information that show the contrary to be true.

Russian claims, legendary. Israel showed what a skillful and resource rich military can do to such systems when it raided Syria unchallenged and destroyed its would be reactor. Things have progressed, claimed specifications make for nice selling points. However if its networks, even closed ones, are vulnerable to standoff infiltration then it's just another target on the ground. Furthermore, Russia is not going to sell Turkey an S-400 unit, the profit to risk ratio of such a sale is out of whack.
