Russia’s satellite news agency quoted the Russian Ministry of Defense on the 14th as saying that Russia plans to install new over-the-horizon radar stations in the south and east to ensure the discovery of air targets thousands of kilometers away from the Russian border.
The Russian Ministry of Defense also said that it would establish a full-cover radar field capable of detecting enemy aircraft, and also studied the possibility of detecting aerial targets beyond the line of sight in the Arctic.
On December 1 last year, the first “container” over-the-horizon radar station of the Russian Air Force began to carry out combat duty in the territory of the Republic of Moldova in western Russia.
Radar stations can help the Russian army monitor possible attacks against Russia within hundreds to 2,000 kilometers of the Russian border in real time. Russia said a few days ago that the radar station has proved the ability to find “invisible” fighter planes in NATO countries in the past year.
