The Russian military has worked out the tactics of using electronic warfare systems against high-precision weapons
Russian electronic warfare systems are capable not only of jamming communications, but also of combating high-precision weapons, depriving the enemy of the possibility of using "smart" ammunition. The fight against aircraft gunners' equipment, as well as other guidance means, was worked out in the Zapad-2021 exercises.
During the Zapad-2021 strategic joint exercises, the Russian military have worked out new tactics for using electronic warfare systems, which make it possible to successfully combat the most modern strike systems. As they write "News" with reference to the Russian Ministry of Defense, for the first time Russian complexes suppressed the communication channels allowing to control and target "smart" ammunition. That is, the communication channels of aircraft controllers, satellite communications, channels for receiving information from navigation GPS satellites, etc. were jammed.
The military emphasize that electronic warfare systems do not allow the enemy to use high-precision weapons, since they completely exclude the exchange of information in the areas where they were used.
During the exercise, electronic warfare units from the Western Military District and the Baltic fleet They covered field headquarters, communication points and launching positions of missiles of the Russian and Belarusian groups from attacks, as well as important industrial facilities and in practice showed the correctness of the chosen tactics, the Ministry of Defense emphasized.
