Germany Wants To Supply Kiev Forces With State-Of-The-Art Counter-Battery Radars - Report

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.

Ramses

And what are the assets?

jens holm

So many dont see most of the debt is invetsments in machines, which produce as well as service in wellfare.

Welfare could be free schools, free education, reward for suing skills and hard work, free or low healthe pay and for hositals too. Important to add pension and money and help for people, which cant do mch by themsel.

The basic debt investments often makes best to the price products and tha bad ones are not produced anymore.

Thats regulated by the locæa parlament, the parlaments and fx EU and UN. As wvery simple example its vey expensive to change to wind and solarcell power. That makes debt. But it also gives back a lot of electricity for the next many years.

The stockholders of course do that debtmaking to be rewarded And they do. They might even get cheaper and cleaner electrivity themself.

jens holm

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.

RealityOfWar

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.

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.

Fred Dozer

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.

Not at all. The orcs should do nothing as such at all. They should leave Ukraine right now instantly. And in addition russia most be prosecuted and Putler sentenced to death for murder.

Beriev A-50 AWACS planes flying over Russia will easily detect the radar signature of those radars.

So why are they built then?

joebiden

These were built against low technology adversaries. Maybe it’s good against Hamas to detect missiles, but not against Russia with advanced EMS capabilities.

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.

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.

On the Battlefield it is not important,what an army has on paper/ inventory, but what is available in the area of operation.

Russia thus far failed to bring enough troops and to gain momentum.

DüFaZ Putin has choosen to start war by his own choice/ timing,it is waged Next door, logistics should be easy as cake.. instead on the ground/ reality Performance of the russian Military has not been impressive at all.

Even little things like russian soldiers personal Equipment give hinds,how badly Performance is…. night vision, Protective gear, communication devices? All either missing or decades outdated, unworthy of a modern military…thats the same shit army that fought 20 years ago in grozny.

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.

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?
