Digital radar goes on combat duty in central Russia

A Gamma-S1 digital radar station has assumed combat duty in the Kirov Region in the central-eastern part of European Russia for airspace control, the press office of Russia's Central Military District reported on Wednesday.

The radar arrived for the Central Military District's radio-technical troops under the defense procurement plan, the press office said.

"A Gamma-S1 digital radar station has gone on combat duty today. The radar will control the airspace in the Kirov Region," the press office said.

The Gamma-S1 radar is designed to control the airspace within a surveillance area of 10 to 300 km. The radar detects and tracks a broad range of modern and perspective air attack weapons, including aircraft-launched missiles, amid electronic warfare measures.
