The Russian Air Force’s Northern Fleet units will receive six sets of Sopka-2 radars this month, the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 3 May.

The MoD has also initiated the technical acceptance of the Sopka-2 radar facilities.

The Sopka-2 radar is an automated solid-state three-axis dual-purpose track radar system designed to provide information for air traffic and airspace control systems.

The system’s high resolution allows it to identify each aircraft flying in a group. The radar is equipped with a protective antenna dome and is able to work in any weather condition, including in winds up to 40m per second.
