New Russian radar under construction near Norwegian border
It is supposed to detect hostile hypersonic missiles
Russia’s Armed Forces group in the Kola Peninsula have been building a new anti-missile radar. An interlocutor in the Russian military-industrial complex shared this information with TASS news agency.
“The Rezonans-N system is capable of spotting approaching hypersonic missiles and protect the military installations of the Northern Fleet. From before, two similar complexes are in operation near strategic military objects in Arkhangelsk Oblast, and one system is installed in the archipelago of Novaya Zemlya. The Rezonans-N is capable to discover aircraft and low-observable cruise missiles that fly 20 times the speed of sound. Aerodynamic targets can be spotted at 600 km range, while ballistic missiles can be discovered from 1200 km distance”, reads the story by The Barents Observer.
The Norwegian outlet reports that the second radar is to be erected in the course of the year, the news agency reports. At least one of the system is believed to be installed on the coast of the Barents Sea.
The Russian military plans to build another three such radars along the Arctic coast of the country.
