Radar station

The Defence Intelligence of Ukraine (DIU) "Gusy-9" special unit struck the Russian radar station "Kasta-2E2". The station was burned down on February 13 near the Russo-Ukrainian border.

What is known about the destruction of the Russian radar

The DIU reported that the Russian "Kasta-2E2" was put out of order, and the radar service suffered losses as a result of the fire damage.

According to intelligence data, before the strike by Ukrainian scouts, the enemy's radar station monitored the air over the Kharkiv and Sumy regions of Ukraine and the Belgorod and, probably, Kursk and Voronezh regions of the Russian Federation.

"Kasta-2E2" is a mobile three-coordinate radar with a decimeter range of circular vision, designed for:

  • airspace control;

  • determination of coordinates;

  • recognition of aerial targets.

The station is able to detect objects at extremely low altitudes, determine their track characteristics and transmit the coordinates and parameters of the target's movement to the air defence control system. The detection range is up to 150 km, the DIU reported.

AFU struck the air defence radar of the occupiers in Crimea

Earlier, in the temporarily occupied Crimea, the Defense Forces of Ukraine hit the radar station of the air defence system of the Russian army.

As a result of the combat operation of the Armed Forces, the radar station of the Russian air defense system was "successfully hit" near the village of Rozdolne in the occupied Crimea.

Also, one of the targets of the DIU special operation at Cape Tarkhankut in Crimea in August of last year was the Nebo-M radar unit and the Kasta-2E2 radar.

Then, during the raid, at least 30 Russians who served the stations were killed.
