Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has deployed a Soviet-made 36D6 [NATO designated Tin Shield] long-range radar near the Damascus international airport, a satellite image released by Israeli defense observer Observer IL on June 15 revealed.

The 36D6 mobile radar system was designed to detect air targets and to perform the friend-of-foe identification. The system, which has a maximum range of 350km, is highly effective in detecting low, medium and high altitude targets, moving in wide speed range, including winged missiles with RCS equal to 0,1 m.

One of the radar’s key features is that it can be s used as a reconnaissance and targeting system for the S-300 air-defense system, which is already in service with the Syrian Arab Air Defense Force (SyAADF).

According to Observer IL, the 36D6 radar replaced a Chinese-made YJ-27 radar that was destroyed in the January 20 Israeli airstrikes on Syria.

The deployment of the 36D6 radar will improve the SyAADF’s early warning capabilities, especially over the southern and southeastern parts of the country.
