Czech military buying Israeli 3D radars

“The Czech government has allocated the Ministry of Defense for the purchase of 3D radars 5,9 billion crowns (about 236 million dollars), which is four times the originally planned amount. It was decided to purchase not five, but ten radar complexes, taking into account their logistic support until 2040, as well as the forced temporary continuation of the use of the outdated Soviet radar P-37, ”a source in the Czech Defense Ministry told RIA "News".

Radar complexes will be procured in a government-to-government format in order to avoid possible corruption schemes. Previously, this format was used during the negotiation of the lease of the Swedish multipurpose fighter Saab JAS-39 Gripen, fully justified itself.

The source also noted that Israeli-made radars are somewhat more expensive, for example, American ones, but their technical characteristics are higher. In 2014, the American concern Lockheed Martin lobbied for the purchase of its radar in the Czech Republic.

    What for the goat accordion? They brew good beer, and they would continue brewing. The arms race starts again, thanks to our American "partners"

      They laughed and okay. Now to the point.
      All countries have their own armies, even neutral countries. And if something happens, you’ll have to feed someone else’s army, which will come either as a defender, or as an occupier, or as a defender-occupier. This is the first.
      Secondly and further.
      The army of the Czech Republic is small in number, but within the framework of NATO, the UN (with the participation of Russia) and the OSCE (with the participation of Russia) it plays an important role. Wipe the smiles off your faces and let's talk seriously. In missions in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Somalia and Sinai, in Bosnia-Herzegovina and in Mali, combined arms units are also directly involved, without tanks and the air force of the army of the Czech Republic. And it is inappropriate to forget January 1993, when 29 Czechoslovakians with two OT-64 transporters under the command of then Lieutenant Colonel Peter Pavel, rescued and brought out of fire French soldiers and officers, from the surrounded and fired from mortars and from the Croatian and Serbian sides, by the French base "Karin" on the territory of Serbian Krajina, in the crumbling Yugoslavia.
      It’s not without weapons to send soldiers per share!
      From May 19.05 to May 21.05.2015, 2015, the international arms fair IDET 2 was held in the Czech city of Brno. Maybe not the most representative, but one of the most pragmatic exhibitions in the world. Projects and ideas do not show here, or rather show, but in very small quantities, they show what can already be bought now or, really bought, in the next 3 to XNUMX years.
      Based on not only official statements by representatives of the Army of the Czech Republic (AČR), but also projects officially submitted to the Czech electorate, we can conclude. Not only the Israeli radar will be bought. Over time, new artillery systems will be bought. Slovak factories or Czechoslovak cooperation, or foreign? Time and money will show. Slovaks already offer a ready-made system.
      From the first pencil to the second shot, this howitzer was made in 9 months.
      It is necessary to change the BMP-2. The proposed models of modernization of the Soviet BMP-2 do not meet the needs of the army. But, at the exhibition were offered CV90 with different configuration of weapons and ASCOD 2. Why not BMP - 3? The price of a Russian product is lower than that of a "western" one, with almost the same fighting qualities, but everything else, including, even, the costs of servicing the negotiation process itself, various insurances, transportation of goods by Russian Railways, spare parts, local service, taking into account time performance and warranty service at manufacturing plants, also taking into account the time of execution and taking into account the weight of the court, regarding the untimely and poor performance of duties by the guarantor enterprise, will result in a pretty penny. There have already been precedents. And the proposed Western devices are no worse than the Russian ones.
      In addition to tracked infantry fighting vehicles, wheeled Pandur IIs will also be bought. Transport vehicles such as the French TITUS or Czech VEGA will also be bought. Both of these machines are on the chassis of the Czech Tatra.
      Time and money will show.

      By the way, the Czechs are buying a "pirate" copy of the American radar station ...

      3D radars

      Who can explain what it is and how they differ from conventional radars?
      Or is it again journalistic tra-la-la?

      Military equipment of the USSR has always been at the level.

    How does this device look at least? And what picture does it give?

      As I understand it, as usual, it also shows the height of the object. At least Wikipedia says so.

        So on the flat display next to the point there are figures for the height and speed ... It just might show exactly the plane of the controlled area, and above it there are images of aircraft in the form of "boxes" and by clicking with the mouse you can see the parameters of the object, and the very "plane" of the area to scroll back and forth and look at the volumetric picture ... I imagine so ...

    3D radars are certainly useful, I show on the monitor the situation close to the real picture, they share air, ground targets well, show the distance near each target, the ability to transfer capture by weapons, etc. ... But this is not real, but a pseudo-picture with pseudo colors and other bells and whistles , without special preparation it is impossible to use it. This technique can be mastered in a few lessons, 2-3_x dozens of workouts. But having learned ...

    Here are those on. The first time I learned that Israel itself produces these radars. I thought that we have American.
