Russia's Central MD gets new radar stations

6th July 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The 14th Air Force and Air Defence army of Russia’s Central Military District has received new Nebo-U and Nebo-M radar stations, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced on 3 July.

The radar stations are designed for the detection, measuring and tracking of air targets of different categories – from aircraft to cruise and guided missiles at distances of up to 600km. The stations can also identify the nationality of air objects and select the active interference response.

The radar stations are part of a wider investment in Russia's air defence capabilities that will introduce more precision weapons and extend the range of target detection, acquisition and engagement.

The stations will reinforce the district’s existing radio-technical units located in the Volga region and Western Siberia.
