Media: US mobile radars supplied to Ukraine cannot be used against the Russian Federation

Modern radar systems supplied by Americans to Ukraine for the counter-battery struggle have been modified so that they cannot be used against the Russian Federation, reports Look with reference to The Wall Street Journal.


Media: US mobile radars supplied to Ukraine cannot be used against the Russian Federation


“The supplied radar systems are designed to fight against pro-Russian separatists,” writes the American newspaper and notes that “this modification provoked a barrage of criticism of the Republican leadership on the Obama administration, who called it an erroneous attempt to reassure Russian President Vladimir Putin.”

At the end of September, Obama signed a decree according to which, 2 radar counter-battery, worth $ 10 million each, will be transferred to Kiev. It is expected that they will arrive at the Yavorovsky proving ground in mid-November.

Washington does not want this equipment to cause an escalation of the conflict, so the radar power was reduced. Now they can not be used against Russia, explained the publication in the White House.

Senator McCain was the first to respond to this delivery, stating that modifications to attenuate radar are a symptom of Obama's “delusional vision”, who hopes to appease Putin in the hope that he “will change his behavior in Ukraine.”

He also stated: “This is part of their efforts to reassure Vladimir Putin. This sends a signal to Russia and Ukraine that we are not ready to seriously oppose the aggression of Vladimir Putin. ”

Help of the newspaper: "Counter-battery radar is mobile radar systems that allow you to track the location of the enemy's battery, based on the trajectory of the projectiles and missiles."

      From Yavoriv training ground, located in the Lviv region, news comes not about the next stage of training for NSU soldiers by American instructors, but about the fact that the hand of enterprising citizens of the country reached the territory fenced with barbed wire.

      It turned out that two local residents managed to steal from a military training ground a radar from an American drone worth about 215 thousand dollars. Expensive American equipment was discovered after some time. It turned out that the residents of the Lviv region were going to turn in the radar for scrap. After the arrest, they stated that they had no idea what fell into their hands and that they were exclusively attracted to metal ...

        It seems to me that this is nonsense. What does weakening mean? The artillery in the militia and the RF Armed Forces is basically no different, if the radar parameters are reduced, then in any case it will work less efficiently.

          So I immediately thought - how does this system distinguish the "separatists" from the Russian troops? Obviously, nothing. Accordingly, these soothing statements are another meaningless nonsense. Especially when you consider that in the official rhetoric “there” it is the Russian troops. Well porridge from nonsense. As for efficiency, I believe that it is really dangerous, especially if you practice using it. No matter how ukropovoin treats, not only among them. In addition, real professionals can carry out direct operation from behind the hill.

      Such radar systems are a great thing: one shot marks the coordinates of the position with a probability of 0,85, the second 0,97, and the third fire opens to kill - almost 100 percent destruction.

    Come on. In Zaporozhye, the Iskra NGOs produce their radars, and, moreover, are pretty good. But since Kiev does not pay money, and workers do not want to work for "patriotism," they are making stations not for Ukraine, but for Ethiopia, Sudan, Vietnam, etc. These at least pay with money. Here Kiev and happy for free from the Americans. The question is different. Who will work at these American stations? You should see who is now being drafted into the army in Ukraine. Not that the machine, the shovel can not be trusted. So let them rejoice at the gifts, anyway, they will either drink it, or break it, or lose it.

    You can joke on the curvature and venality of Ukrainians as much as you like. But the fact remains: the supplies of modern weapons are officially made to Ukraine. And this is very bad. Such equipment is not supplied to participate in parades or gather dust in a warehouse. In the fact of delivery, I see intentions to continue the armed conflict in the Donbass. And, I'm afraid that these radars will still do misfortunes.

    No, well, pinned on a journalist. ANY radar can be used against anyone, those more counter-battery.
    Artillery with such gadgets is becoming more operational. It detects a position and gives an "answer" in a minute. But the militia our Storks have long stood, and a pair of short-range radars will not win the war. Although troubles can be done. only such radars are detected - one or two. If there is anything. And they have neither protection nor calculation ...

      By the way, if you remember in Slavyansk they also dragged the anti-battery radar. Ukrainians thought cool, but militiamen burned him right there. He was then dragged to the factory for repairs. The sight will tell you the sad. So do not worry, in the Ukrainian army like the Arabs, if something more complicated than Kalashnikov either does not work, or works very poorly.

    Modern radar systems supplied by the Americans to Ukraine for counter-battery combat are modified in such a way that they cannot be used against the Russian Federation. The supplied radar systems are designed to fight against pro-Russian separatists ”

    Is it written exactly in the instructions for use? belay It is amazing to what heights the science has jumped, it can be distinguished within a few kilometers from a person or unit belonging to a certain region or nationality. But it’s interesting, can these radars be used against Ukrainian banderlogs and their American trainers? what laughing

    And from my point of view, it’s more like throwing firewood into a dying bonfire. Locators are here, 50 tons of cargo are here ... and smoldering everywhere. And we spend money, time and attention on extinguishing foci. And these ... bad people, they’re plotting somewhere else. Amerikos really hope for two oceans cutting them off from the whole world, perhaps in vain. For example, in the event of an epidemic, it will be more difficult to dump.

    I will support the words about banter in relation to ukrov. No need to banter. The fact that they look ugly on the battlefield in Dombas is a merit of the true patriots of their country, professional military men who sabotage the SBU military operation in many ways. You look at how many people with Ukrainian surnames hold responsible positions in our country and they do not look stupid eaters of fat. An army without a head is a herd. Therefore, let's say THANKS to people who are quietly doing their job, not being afraid of a threat to their lives and the lives of their loved ones. We will not generalize and hang on one label. There are circumstances stronger than people, but even in these living conditions they were able to remain people. We may not when we do not know their names, but what they have done and do is heroism. It would be much more difficult for the children upholding the Donbass without such “silent” support. And as an example of the significance of even one person - what did Russia look like under the Drunken Bor and Tagged Michael?
