"Krasuha". A name that has recently become public. Something formidable and powerful. We managed to get close to this miracle of domestic technology, and it did not disappoint us.
Chernozem gritty "Krasuhe" uneasy. 8х8 is power. Plus two front wheel pairs, fully steerable.
Construction, formulation of the problem ...
And the deployment process has begun.
The engine providing energy to the antenna complex. Modern and most protected from IC guidance.
And sometimes so - with a dive, because time does not wait.
It is impressive that the complex is as mechanized as possible. All lifting mechanisms are controlled from a single remote.
The cover of the antenna compartment is moved on rollers. Conveniently.
And now the antenna comes out.
View from the antenna compartment.
With the antenna finished, the crew goes to the command post.
With the help of these cylinders KUNG with gearbox can "stand" on its feet. Then KamAZ leaves KUNG, and quietly falls aside. A KP gets to the ground. It is thought up that especially clever could not direct a rocket on residual heat of the engine. The operation, according to the crew, hemorrhoids, but in combat conditions is very useful.
KP from the inside. Amused good old "Tair" as a means of communication. In principle, the complex is equipped with the latest communication system, but this is unnecessary radio emission, and therefore, the possibility of bearing. So if there is an opportunity to use a cable - use.
In the search and tracking mode, the station is absolutely passive. So if someone is impatient to find her before striking a blow, you are welcome. There will be something to occupy your time.
"Krasuha" - complex "C", that is, is designed to work on aerial targets. Anything that flies and uses the radar is guaranteed to receive through its electronic brains. The range of the complex to 300 km, target height from 10 meters. The maximum height ... well, as I was told, "almost nobody flies there."
The turning radius of the antenna on the horizon is all 360 degrees, vertically 90. There are practically no “dead zones”. The principle of operation is simple: a target is detected, captured, maintained, in the case of an order, a radar signal is caught, distorted, amplified, and sent back via the same channel. Catch, as they say, feed. Hi radar. You can, of course, try it without radar and other electronics, but it's like an 20 century in the courtyard ... It won't work.
Beautiful, powerful, comfortable car. What a pity that its production did not slow down our problems in time. But even today, Krasukha is something that makes your knees shake and relax sphincters of all potential opponents.
And I will tell you a secret that the troops already have complexes that are the next generation after the “Krasukha”. But it will be different история. Hopefully in the near future.
