The troops of the Southern Military District replenished the new radar "Caste-2"

In the radio engineering regiment 4 of the army of the Air Force and Air Defense, deployed in the Volgograd region, a new radar "Caste-2" arrived, reports RIA News Post press service of the Southern District.

Radar "Caste-2Е2"

The radar arrived in the framework of the re-equipment program of the troops of the Southern Military District,
says release.

"Kasta-2" is a mobile radar station with a round-robin standby mode.

It is reported that it is “designed to control the airspace, determine the range, azimuth, flight altitude and route characteristics of air objects - airplanes, helicopters, remotely piloted aircraft and cruise missiles, including flying at low and extremely low altitudes”.

The press service added that the station “works effectively against the background of intense reflections from the surface, local objects and meteorological formations”.

      The United States has planning bombs with a flight range of 110 kilometers and an EPR of 0,015 meters squared, this radar will detect such a bomb when it is 5 kilometers from it.

        To drop this bomb at a distance of 110 km, a US aircraft should not be seen for horizontal radars that see thousands of kilometers and air defense, which they see 400 km.

          Over-the-horizon radars are SPRN, with all air defense systems the same nonsense, the smaller the EPR of a rocket, bomb, aircraft and UAV, the detection range is shorter, alas, the EPR of 0,03 meters squared is the aisle of detection of our most advanced radars - at an acceptable distance for defeats, only optical channels will help out later.

            EPR 0.03 sq.m - in what range? And it’s usually given in 3 cm, but it’s not at all the same thing as dm, especially 1.7m, i.e. meter. Both over-the-horizon stations and SPRN are two big differences. ZGRLS are decameter waves, and SPRN stations can be of different ranges, Voronezh, for example, meter

      There is no mistake: the Air Force is a branch of the armed forces.

      Aerospace Forces:
      High Command of the Aerospace Forces
      - Air Force
      - Space troops
      - Air defense troops.
