Russia to commission new generation early warning radars in Kaliningrad & Irkutsk regions

January 29th, 2011

Two new generation radar stations incorporated into Russia’s early warning system will be brought into operation in the Kaliningrad and Irkutsk regions, Russian Space Forces Commander Lt. gen. Oleg Ostapenko told journalists on Thursday.

“One of them is already performing certain duties in the Kaliningrad region. Analogous work is being done outside Irkutsk,” Ostapenko said when asked where else early warning radar stations will be built.

The stations being installed in the Kaliningrad and Irkutsk regions are almost identical to the so-called prefabricated radar stations already built in Lekhtusi, the Leningrad region, and Armavir, the Krasnodar territory, the differences will be slight.

It was reported earlier that the first prefabricated radar station Voronezh-M was built in Lekhtusi and another, Voronezh-DM, in Armavir.
