New radar "Zoos" entered the Central Military District

The 41 artillery unit of the Combined Arms Army of the Central Military District, stationed in the Kemerovo Region, received new counter-battery radar systems "Zoo-1" as part of the state defense order, the district press service reports

New radar "Zoos" entered the Central Military District

The use of counter-battery radar will improve the combat capabilities of artillery units and increase the effectiveness of counter-battery strikes in the performance of training tasks
- said in a statement

The complexes are intended for reconnaissance of enemy firing positions, determining the movement of projectiles and the class of firing systems. In addition, "Zoo-1" allows you to control the destruction of the target by its own means. He can also monitor the airspace and monitor unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Zoo-1 radar for reconnaissance of missile and artillery positions is considered one of the best systems in the world. It is completely autonomous, it takes about five minutes to deploy. The equipment of the complex can survey the positions of mortars of caliber 82-120 millimeters at a distance of 17 kilometers, guns of caliber 105-155 millimeters at a distance of 12 kilometers, multiple launch rocket systems - up to 22 kilometers, tactical missiles - up to 45 kilometers. Zoo is able to detect up to 70 firing positions per minute while simultaneously accompanying up to 12 targets

      Why overlooked? It does not say that when the mortar moves, it detects the target, and where the fire is coming from. Mortar fire began, they were discovered and covered. But the first mines have already arrived.

    Apparently smart thing! It is very good that they took it into service, now they will not shoot at the white light, like a penny!

      It has been adopted for 10 years already, and in terms of range it is behind by the same amount, while Excalibur / Cesar is about 40 km away.

        70km, these are ordinary shells of modern self-propelled guns like Pzh2000 at 40km thrown.

    Question. Why they were not on duty, in Syria, at our base, on New Year's Eve.

        Hello, Lord! You would now like that in the Donbass, but in full cooperation with the artillery - quickly these "shooters" would pay off. hi

    They are first of all needed in the South, so that in the interests of Donbass and Lugansk it works. There the crews and practice would have received, and directly benefited.

      Somewhere I read one ukrovna, so he said that as soon as they fired artillery an otvetka immediately flew at them, so much so that after the battery there was nothing left.

    Previously, the "Zoo" called the electronic warfare system. It seems that the Iranian comrades of her American drones planted.

    Well, the characteristics cover the range of the mortars completely ... but for the artillery 12 km is very small ... modern artillery 40 km shoots .... and this despite the fact that even a 122 mm D-30 howitzer hits 15 km .. .

      For barrel artillery 12 km is very small ...

      a lot depends on the height of the antenna. If this car is driven into an 8-meter slide, then it will cover 30 km in range. The main thing is that it would not become a target. Surely, she does not have the opportunity to interact with the SAM Shell or Tor. It's a pity.

      And let's remember the artillery and in the form of MLRS. There for 100 km ....
      Here the question is in the most relevant operational range. Everything beyond the horizon should be suppressed using other intelligence systems, plus the detection and destruction of groups of spotters.

    I served at such a complex, and in 2004-2007 in the 42 artillery regiment artillery regiment ... The complex constantly refused, neither officers nor the ensign technician of this complex knew how to work on it ... Even when we were standing on the b / d in the Khankala region, he simply stood idle, for a show, never detecting anything (also nikerta in the exercises), since at each turn-on it showed the refusal of several blocks, it was generally not clear to anyone how to work ... When inspectors came, it’s just they lifted the antenna, turned on the computers, everything was buzzing - the testers, too, without a damn understanding, nodded their heads and left ...
    Specialists from the factory called him to set it up (moreover, the time from the call to the arrival was just a few years), as two arrived, immediately noted the arrival of local alcohol in Chechnya, one died the next day, the second was pumped out, it seemed to be arranged (I was in on vacation) The zoo worked out the exercises, everything seemed to be normal, according to the officer, and then in the park they decided for some reason to raise the antenna and unfasten the clamps, the hydraulics tore them to hell, after that the complex wasn’t used anymore ...
    Then in Chechnya there was a frequent rotation of officers, everyone had one concern: how to hand over the equipment upon departure, as a rule, everyone handed over or simply wrote off bribes to the same headquarters, since the ARC that was dismantled back in probably during the USSR, was written off as an act, as if into an antenna lightning hit and burned all the equipment ...
    In general, this is my experience of service at this complex (radar operator), I hope now at least something has changed ... Although it is unlikely and most likely in Syria they did not show themselves for the same reason ...

      Most likely, if there is nothing new, then they simply support production. In order not to lose personnel, before developing something new!
      As one of the chief designers (the Zvezda television program) recently said - to do something for the extra five kilometers is to stand still and wasting money. We need to look at the cycle of combat use for the next 20-25 years.

      "Lucky" you get into the gouging mug ...
      The technique is not to blame. Guilty people with bad education and discipline ("product adjustment"). So-so, they came without interest in the service, in the business ... Then, there was an unspoken installation in the sun, if only to sit out and let everything fall apart ....

        I support, Henry. Such sophisticated equipment requires highly qualified personnel and good training manuals. To us at the airship in 1988 We brought new equipment for us. So our ensign for 3-4 months. they figured out according to the manuals (instructions) and we (conscripts) were pulled up. hi

    Interestingly, with active work, how many times a minute does he have to change his position so as not to get hit by serifs using RTR? wink And, as they recently wrote here, EW and RTR are a panacea for everything radiating.

      They have something - like a "frequency maneuver." This fighter must be remembered fell, rolled, gave a couple of bursts - change position. Something like this....
