MOSCOW, December 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Defence Minister, General Sergei Shoigu has issued instructions to fully equip and make fully operational the new-generation Container radar site and station that entered trial combat duty in Mordovia a week ago.
“We all understand quite well that such a site and station allow us to expand the horizons of monitoring and control over the situation in the west. Accordingly, I demand from all the executives in this sphere to start the work to fully equip the radar site,” the minister said at a conference call in the Defence Ministry on Monday.
Shoigu expressed the hope that the station would be made fully operational so that its capacity could be employed more effectively.
Reports about putting on trial combat duty of the Container new-generation radar station came on December 2. It is the first radar station within the air defence and missile defense command of the RF Aerospace Defense Forces that is capable of air target acquisition at a distance of more than 3,000 kilometers.
The station is a unit of the air and space attack reconnaissance and early warning system.
