“Can effectively suppress drones”: the Western press praised the installation of the “Volnorez” jammer on Russian tanks
The Russian defense industry demonstrated a portable jammer designed for installation on mobile equipment in order to combat enemy drones.
Responding to the challenge from UAVs, Russia introduced its latest countermeasure - the Volnorez electronic jammer. This advanced system was first shown installed on tank T-80BVM, attracting the attention of military analysts around the world
- says the publication World Defense News.
As indicated, the “Breakwater” can be easily mounted (using magnets) on a tank turret to counter UAV attacks, operating 360 degrees in a wide frequency range from 900 to 3000 MHz.
This wide spectrum ensures that the new product can effectively jam a variety of drones operating in this range. With the ability to jam UAV signals over a kilometer away, the Breakwater is a powerful deterrent against airborne threats.
- is assessed in the Western press.
Once exposed to interference, most UAVs either veer off course, crashing into the ground, or remain motionless, treading water until they regain signal or exhaust their energy reserves.
As explained, it is believed that for the smooth operation of the Breakwater, an auxiliary power unit is necessary. However, early tests of the system were carried out on the T-72B3 tank, which did not have it.
