MOSCOW, April 3. /TASS/. Advanced radioelectronic warfare complexes of the Krasukha family will help Russian Army units to cover the Arctic areas, the press service of the KRET corporation for radioelectronic technologies said on Thursday.
"In the conditions of a buildup of foreign military groupings and a chain of war games close to the Russian borders, improvements and ramification of capabilities of air defense and radioelectronic warfare systems, including the ones that will operate in the Arctic areas is an important aspect of our activity," the press service quoted Nikolay Kolesov, the corporation’s president.
Krasukha (literally meaning ‘belladonna’) complexes developed by KRET help resolve the tasks of screening the particularly important state and military installations, infrastructure facilities, and rear areas. The Krasukha-4 modification dims out sections of land surface as big as several hundred square kilometers for radars and suppress onboard radars of frontline and sea-based aviation with the help of radioelectronic jamming.
The Krasukhas do not have analogues abroad and are key elements of the prospective system of radio electronic warfare against aerial attack vehicles. Units of the Armed Forces are currently putting them on their tables of equipment.
