The main tasks of the 1 RL128 rangefinder:

  • identifying air targets;
  • definition of azimuth and slant range of air targets;
  • automatic output of the altimeter antenna to the air target and displaying the height value of the air target according to the altimeter data;
  • control your aircraft using the P-862 aircraft radio station and the circular view indicator;
  • direction finding for jammers.

The radar complex refers to the composition of radio engineering formations and air defense units, as well as anti-aircraft missile formations and units of military air defense.


Structurally, all the equipment, antenna-feeder system and ground-based radar interrogator are located on a self-propelled 426Y tracked chassis with their components. In addition, there are 2 gas turbine power units on it.
