The newest Russian radar station, located on the border with Belarus, will detect stealth aircraft and missiles at a distance of 2.5 thousand kilometers

Russia has begun construction of a unique radar station on the border with Belarus.

After in the middle of last year, the Belarusian side announced that it could stop providing Russia with the capabilities of its over-the-horizon radar station located in the south-west of the country, it became known that Russia decided to start building its own over-the-horizon radar station of the decimeter range, which will be located near the Belarusian border.

According to the data available to the news agency, we are talking about a decimeter over-the-horizon radar 80P6, which will have a detection range of even stealth targets at a distance of up to 2.5 thousand kilometers (up to the western borders of France - ed. .).

“The boundaries of the survey sectors in azimuth of the 80P6 radar at its current location, the orientation of the HEADLIGHT web and a hypothetical operating range of 2500 km. Green color marks the boundaries at ± 30 ° from the normal of the radar canvas, yellow at ± 45 °, red at ± 60 °. ", - informs "Telegram" - community "Voenno-boltovoy", citing the corresponding image.

During what period of time the newest Russian over-the-horizon radar will be put into operation is unknown, however, its appearance will give the Russian military a unique advantage.

Not a bad sector for shelling (including Turkey).
