The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has decided to deploy five resonance radar stations “Resonance-N” in the Far East. This became known during the defense forum “Army-2021”, writes the portal Air Recognition, referring to the Russian TASS.
It is known that the first such radar “Resonance-N” is planned to be located on Sakhalin, the locations of the other four such stations are still being determined. All five Resonance-Ns will be on combat duty in the Far East of the Russian Federation by 2027.
The Russian military says its Resonance-N stations are capable of detecting stealth planes and targets moving at hypersonic speeds at distances of 600 to 1,200 kilometers and at altitudes of up to 100 kilometers.
Russia already has three Resonance-N radar stations in the Arctic region, the most recent – was located in 2019 on Novaya Zemlya and included in the 45th Air Defense Army of the Northern Fleet. By the end of 2021, the Russian military plans to deploy two more Resonance-N radars in the Arctic.
According to some reports, a Resonance-N station in the “export” version of the Russian Federation has been sold to Algeria and Iran over the past five years.
We will recall, as BulgarianMilitary.com stated, that by 2024 the Russian Federation plans to build and put on combat duty near Sevastopol the horizontal radar “Voronezh”, which should become an element of the Russian missile attack warning system.
