Day of the specialist in electronic warfare of the Armed Forces

Day of the specialist in electronic warfare of the Armed Forces

On April 15, specialists in electronic warfare (EW) celebrate their professional holiday in the Armed Forces.


The holiday was approved in 1999 on the basis of an order from the head of the defense department.

Then the post of Minister of Defense of Russia was held by Igor Sergeyev.



The choice of date is associated with the events of the Russo-Japanese War, when in April 1904 the Japanese armored cruisers Kassuga and Nissin went out to shell Port Arthur fortress. At this time, the battleship "Victory" and the Golden Mountain station began to use the option of a large spark in order to interrupt Japanese telegrams. As a result, the Japanese faced problems in transmitting information, which led to another problem - the inability to conduct effective fire adjustment.

Many years have passed since then, and during this time, domestic means and methods of electronic warfare have stepped far forward. For operations, special equipment is used, including jamming stations, electronic warfare systems, automated electronic warfare control systems, fixed antenna posts of electronic intelligence, and systems for protecting military installations from listening and information leakage.

Russian electronic warfare systems are used not only in Russia. They are also used to perform assigned tasks, for example, in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. In particular, it was repeatedly reported that the latest Russian electronic warfare system, Krasukha-4, was used in the SAR.

Military Review congratulates personnel military personnel specialists in electronic warfare, as well as service veterans on their professional holiday!

      To perpetuate the glory of fathers and grandfathers, it would be appropriate to make September 2 Victory Day over Japan in WWII!

            As a result of shelling by Japanese ships, 190 shells of the main caliber were fired. Due to the lack of adjustments, the hits on the Russian ships did not happen. Only two soldiers on the batteries of the Tiger Tail Peninsula were wounded. So military radiotelegraphists saved their ships. And electronic warfare was born in the world,
            I think that the state could issue a commemorative coin in honor of the anniversary.
            PS One of the initiators was Vice Admiral Makarov.

              Coin, as it is not serious, but a commemorative medal should be made, and reward distinguished EW warriors.

          I confess I overslept. I just read about this event on the next branch. I fully support the idea of ​​Salute in the "Eastern Territories", so much so that it would be visible in Tokyo !!!
