Russian Air Force received five radar stations to detect stealth aircraft
As reported by the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service, in the past year, the Russian Aerospace Forces received five Nebo-M radar stations, which have already been put in combat duty. Currently, 10 such stations are in use. Additionally, in 2016 the army received Podlet-K1. Overall, there are more than 30 new Podlet-K1 stations and all-altitude detectors on duty that provide air defense in the capital. The unique system which does not have a western counterpart can detect more than 200 targets of different types.
According to the TV channel Zvezda, the Nebo-M is a mobile radar system designed to detect aircrafts (including ones built with stealth technology), helicopters and ballistic missiles at medium and high altitudes.
