Russian Counter Stealth Radars
29th December 2008
An extensive two phase update has been performed on this webpage, adding more radars, more imagery, and providing additional technical 'backfill' for a number of radars previously listed.
1. The L-band Gamma DE AESA is now being offered in 3 power ratings, and also mast mounted configurations. This radar is like the Nebo SVU a major risk for VLO fighters (and bigger risk for not quite VLO fighters).
2. S-400 / SA-21 batteries are now being equipped with digital interfaces for integration with the Gamma DE and Protivnik DE L-band acquisition radars. Both are accurate enough for SAM midcourse guidance updates.
3. Full technical summaries for the 96L6, Gamma DE and Protivnik DE translated from Russian and EU sources.
