How can you compare a green weapons system like S-400 against a continuously battle tested and improved system like Patriot?

Anyway, go look for the Swedish Military Reasearch Agency report on S-400.

They are secure against china but by all reports, they are worse than s400. Try to check neutral reports instead of reading one sided propaganda and being hyped up about your preferred systems superiority.
The ragtag houthis of yemen hammered saudi oil facilities recklessly despite the fact that they had deployed amreekunt anti missiles horseshiet.

In Turkey's case it was insisting on TOT for Patriot which the US did not want to give. And quality comes with a cost.

Feeling drunk from BRICS hype and domestic electoral gains, plus general dislike with the West on how Erdogan's EU membership dream remain stuck and how the US did not fully support his Syria adventures, Erdogan foolishly swung to Russia thinking he can gain leverage with the US. He gain notoriety instead.
And he got ToT on S400? Erdogan is an emotional fool. He thought he could bargain with US by playing Russia card and US called his bluff.

Now they have a system which can't be integrated with other Nato based air defence system, can't be integrated with even turkeys upcoming ADs. His decision has been an comical reality. I think there was news in 2020 or something that turkey S400 systems are lying idle.

Neither can you integrate S-400 with NASAMS, SPIDER, BARAK, etc... I would even argue that American THAAD and Patriots ADs are easier to integrate to the newer AD systems from Israel and the US that it already have.
We don't have NASAM yet. Nasam even if it comes in would be an standalone system to protect from hacking etc as a last mile of defense to pmo and parliament. But no one is sure if it's coming.

Barak is an JV. We already have our own seeker and control unit. Moreover there is our own Akash plus older Russian ADs which can be integrated easily.
Spyder is a tough nut to crack though.

В войска ЦВО впервые поступили глубоко модернизированные радиолокаторы "Небо-Т" - Армия и ОПК - ТАСС (tass.ru)

MOSCOW, January 18. /TASS/. For the first time, the troops of the Central Military District (TsVO) have been equipped with deeply modernized Nebo-T radar stations, which will take up combat duty in the regions of the Urals and the Volga region. This was reported on Tuesday in the press service of the Central Military District.

“Deeply modernized Nebo-T radar stations have been delivered to the troops of the Central Military District for the first time. In the coming days, they will take up combat duty in the regions of the Urals and the Volga region,” the report says.
As noted in the press service, the stations in terms of their tactical and technical characteristics are significantly superior to their counterparts. They are able to quickly find and track aerodynamic and ballistic targets within a radius of up to 600 km with high accuracy. New radar stations will increase the combat capabilities of air defense units of the Central Military District in the Volga and Ural regions.

How does one make sure that S400 doesn't shoot down friendly jets and helis ? Can it interface with american and french jets and helis? Does India need french and US permission for that ?

IFF(Identify Friend or Foe) systems are desi on our jets. Otherwise also, they can harmonise frequency at which AF will be running it's IFF transponders at.

1. IFF
2. S400 operated by IAF
3.S400 is not good against helis
4.All systems brought from abroad uses indian iff and comms or ones designed wrt indian requirements.
Accidental fire can happen like patriot vs uk jets or spyder vs mi17, but its rare.
