The Azerbaijani military has destroyed the fire control radar of an Armenian S-125 “Pechora” short-range air-defense system.
On October 22, the Caliber AZ channel on YouTube shared a video showing a loitering munition targeting the SNR-125 “Low Blow” radar. The targeted system was allegedly located within the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The SNR-125, the heart of the S-125 system, is a 250 kW I/D-band tracking, fire control and guidance radar with a range of 40 to 80 km.
The Armenian Air Defense Force operates a number of S-125 systems, some of which were upgraded to the Pechora-M and 2M standers. The one attacked by the Azerbaijani military appeared to be a basic soviet version. LINK
The S-125 radar was likely struck with an Israeli-made IAI Harop loitering munition, which was equipped with an anti-radar homing system and an optical sensor. Its munition range is up to 1,000 km.
The Azerbaijani military has so far destroyed dozens of Armenian air-defense systems, including radars and launchers of a S-300 system.
