Germany is planning to supply Kiev with COBRA counter-battery radars to help its forces take on the Russian artillery, Die Welt reported on May 5.
According to the news outlet, Kiev initially requested the supply of 40 COBRA systems. However, German can only supply five of its stock of 19 systems.
The COBRA [COunter Battery RAdar] was developed by Thales, Airbus Defence and Space and Lockheed Martin for the German Armed Forces, the French Army and the British Army.
On it’s website, the German military says that the system’s state-of-the-art active, phase-controlled antenna “scans the horizon and recognizes or tracks projectiles and rockets until the precise launch coordinates, and possibly also the impact coordinates, can be determined”.
The system is capable of spotting 40 enemy artillery positions, mortars, and rocket launchers within a range of 100 kilometers in just two minutes.
The COBRA systems will likely be working in Ukraine with German-made Panzerhaubitze 2000 155 mm self-propelled howitzers. It was confirmed on May 6 that the Dutch and German governments had approved sending 12 of the heavy howitzer to Kiev forces.
Germany is also reportedly considering supplying Kiev forces with Spexer radars and Nightowl long-range surveillance cameras. The Spexer radar is used to detect aircraft, including drones, helicopters and fighter jets, as well as armored vehicles and naval vessels. The Nightowl camera can spot vehicles at night from several kilometers away.
In the last two months, Germany became one of the main military backers of Kiev. Berlin has supplied Kiev forces with loads of weapons, including thousands of anti-tank rockets and anti-aircraft missiles, since the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine.
Germany hopes that Western military support to Kiev forces will eventually lead to the failure of the Russian special military operation.
I don’t know what it’s gonna take for the west to realize they are just gonna bankrupt themselves. The Ukraine military can’t even protect it’s airspace. and the utilize those heavy machines you need expertise and that comes with training & experience. It’s not a manpad
The West is trillions of dollars bankrupt already yet the dual citizen banker is always willing to lend more.
If we are bankrupt as You say and we jst lend more money and can, we are not bankrupt at all.
You compare with Your own systen. That makes no sense.
It all seems a bit of a mess for Nazi Ukraine. It’s great to have the counter battery radars. However, you are still at a disadvantage if you have towed artillery and the Russian have a lot of self propelled artillery (the self propelled stuff repositions faster after firing) The Russians also have, don’t be surprised counter battery radars too! Then you layer on top of this, the air dominance that Russia has and it all adds up to very high attrition rates for the Ukrainian Nazis in any artillery exchanges with Russia – the counter battery radars are open to air attack!. It was no mistake that Obama’s administration, came to the conclusion that Russia will always have escalatory dominance in this area of Ukraine. It’s as if a Siren is pulling the west to lay out it’s weapon systems for destruction on the rocks of Dombas!
Within 2 weeks they will learn all they knew to know about those “state of the art counter battery radars” I guess.
You even insist in not knowng much.
Some might give You a radar or learn You to grab a chair
Hey Moron look at those ruskies roasting at snake island, every day they try to evacuate they get raosted again, rinse & repeat, those ruskies are so dumb. Have a look, on this one you can see “the already destroyed since 3 months UAF air force” having a little fun also
Want to see how the US 2020 election was stolen by the globalists. Go here. Watch 2000 mules for free and pass on the news and link.
Soon there will be civil war in the United States, and that will halt the entirety of the american effort in NATO on behalf of Ukraine.
The resultant balkanization will result in a coalition of states headed by texas that will see taking control of a large swath of what remains of the United States armed forces and assets, and they will refuse to continue hostilities on behalf of ukraine.
Once that happens, the EU will relent in their insistence to provoke and antagonize Russian war efforts, these radars might be useful if you know the UAF still had a considerable amount of soldiers willing to fight, but they don’t.
What else? We still waiting F35 lightening LOL All that sheats will be broken by Z opération boys
Wali fanboys are on suicide watch after reading his interview in La Presse, he ran home crying after one tank shell liquidated the two Banderas beside him. No wonder everyone assumed he was dead, he left months ago 🤣. Where’s that CrazyCuckCanuck guy that posts here?
All NATO supply countries are legitimate Russian Targets. The supplies are directly killing Russians of all kinds, including civilians. Will only end in the complete destruction of the World, if escalation continues. Russia must take control of the all border crossing into Ukraine. Destroying or having a capable amount of forces.
None of such strikes ever happened but Putin keeps apologizing to Pissrael.
The all so called West is a tiger paper,
Russia cut off the gas
Russia just cut off the gas to this Germans already!
The only thing those radars can do here is attract Russian anti-radar missiles. Life expectancy of the crews will be in minutes.
Beriev A-50 AWACS planes flying over Russia will easily detect the radar signature of those radars.
The world owes President Putin and the Russian people a debt of gratitude for their efforts in eradicating the scourge of fahclsm and nahtzism where-ever it rears it’s ugly head.
First germany, and now 75 years later …. in uKRAPistan !
God bless you President Putin and the people you lead !
I LOVE THE SMELL OF BURNT UKRAINIAN IN THE MORNING ! ! !
Correct the shot to: you love the smell of burnt west nazis in the morning,
GOOOOOOOOOD. Few minutes ago there was a video evidence of M777 howitzer’s GPS rounds finding 5 russian 2S3 Akatsiyas. Watching them all exploding was so satisfactory.
Anglo-saxon, go read Jack London carefully. And the 2S3 Akatsya is from 1968.
Was that from Arma 3?
That’s funny, German? German are not even able to protect their own women and children that are being raped for Muslim at this exact moment in Germany, lol. They should focus in the production of radar to detect rape, lol. So if the Germans are running from Germany, who was the Muslim that make this system? Lol. This is a joke but I try to said the actual Germany is not what it is used to be. Do not expect too much.
They do this hoping Russian kalibr missile stocks will be depleted soon?
Too little too late. Russia have thousands of self propelled artillery and MLRS systems, they will simply outgun everything that Ukraine has. Oh and those radars have radar signature that can be detected by Su-35 planes and they will easily pick those with anti-radiation missiles.
Just shut off the gas.
Every single day a soon to be bankrupt little puppet NATO nation says they’re about to deliver a game changing new weapon to the Ukrainians. Meanwhile every single day Russia takes a new town and more territory from Ukraine, today being the very strategic town of Popasnaya. Not a single weapon that any of the 30 NATO countries have sent to Ukraine has had any significant impact on the battle field. The word on the streets of Ukraine is that the Ukrainian military is so corrupt and demoralized that the leadership of the military in Ukraine is selling most of the weapons to arms dealers as soon as the weapons arrive in Ukraine and selling them at a fraction of the price to be able to get their families out of Ukraine and leave with their pockets full.
Seriously if I was the Russian ,there will not be one bride, railroad or tunnel left in Ukraine that connect with the west. Even the factory they produce part to fix them will be left standing,air port will be destroy as well in order works the tavellin infrastructure will destroy and non existed .
Another german wunderwaffe. The problem is that Ukraine were already using counter battery radars and they weren’t good for anything.
For morons who say that Putin apologized to the Jews. This is easy to check. Here is a transcript of a telephone conversation on the Kremlin website! h t t p :// en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/68356 Jews bred you like morons!
yes, and they’ll be struck with cruise missiles as soon as it’s setup. =P
How will this things defend themself against anti radar weapon? They will need to be switched on a lot of time. They will survive not much longer then S300 systems
More technology for the Russians to capture and devise counter measures for, shrewd!
Why aren’t the gas to Germany cut yet?
As a deep hearted German Patriot, as a Soldier who spend more than third of my Livetime in the German Army, – I feel deeply ashamed by the decisions made by German – so called “Polit. Leaders”, – delivering all of these stuff, against our natural Allies, the people of the Russian Federation, – instead of using it to wipe out those Anglo Basterds from the face of Eurasian soil, along side with the Russian Warriors for a better, brighter Future for all of us
How is any of this going to help the Ukrainians? Also, military equipment breaks down in war, and Ukraine has no way to repair or service these systems to keep them in the fight. Russia has destroyed the Ukraine logistics infrastructure. How do these idiots in the west plan on delivering these systems, and expect them to make it to the Donbass where the fighting is happening?
Thats nice. Its very expensive and has to be protected very well.
nazi jens stinky diapers nice for senile moron
can Ukrainians operate anything as they are pulverized?
