The Russian Army’s 41st Combined Arms Army stationed in the Altai Territory of the Central Military District has received three upgraded Artek radio communications stations, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced on 29 January.

The R-166-05 Artek radio station has been designed to provide radio communications on short and ultrashort wave bands in ground and airborne electronic warfare environments. The station operates in two independent directions of radio communication at the same time.

The R-166-05 Artek station is integrated on a BTR-80 armoured personnel carrier. The new equipment will be used by signal units of the Alei motorised rifle brigade and nuclear, biological and chemical defence forces during major manoeuvres and tactical exercises.
