“It is expected that the post-horizon modified radar Sunflower will take over combat duty in the Baltic in 2017,” said a source.
According to him, "radar with the same radar in the 2017 year can be placed in the Crimea."
The interlocutor added that “radar stations with these radars are capable of controlling the 200-mile coastal zone”.
He noted that the “distinctive feature of Sunflower is its ability to detect objects not only in direct visibility, but also beyond the horizon.” For example, a radar stationed in the Black Sea region “will see any warship that passes the Bosphorus,” the source said.
The agency reminds that in 2013, the “Sunflower” was deployed in the Caspian Sea, then plans appeared for its deployment in the Arctic.
