Crimea received ultra-long-range protection - "Niobium-SV"

Now the ultra-long-range Niobium-SV will protect Crimea.

In connection with the deployment of missile defense systems by Washington in Romania, it was decided to deploy ultra-long-range Niobium-SV radar systems on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula, which would cover not only the peninsula, but also the southern part of Russia.

“New radars will reliably cover the Crimea and the entire south of the country. Moreover, there is something to hide from, military experts say. For example, the so-called missile defense area created by the United States in Romania and designed to protect Europe from the "Iranian threat" is a beautiful legend in order to hide the deployment of offensive means "- reports the publication "Izvestia".

Russian Niobium-SV radars are capable of detecting targets at distances of up to 500 kilometers, and this even applies to high-altitude targets (maximum detection altitude of 65 kilometers - approx. Ed.), As well as targets moving at almost hypersonic speed (up to 4,4 Max - approx.ed.)

Experts draw attention to the fact that the deployment of ultra-long-range radars in the Crimea is especially relevant against the backdrop of the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty.

It is high time

The author or source of information showed complete illiteracy in the performance characteristics of the radar (500 km.da and at high altitude). The antediluvian P-14 radar had a detection range of 600 km. The author is probably one of those bore scribes who deciphered NIVA 4x4 as NIVA four wheels, four cylinders
