The Syrian Army has received the Aistenok mobile radar system from the Russian Defense Ministry in order to reinvigorate the truce-monitoring capabilities during the ceasefire.
The Syrian Armed Forces have appreciated an advanced model of the Aistenok mobile radar system, handed over to the Syrian Army by the Russian Defense Ministry in order to reinvigorate the truce-monitoring capabilities, the spokesman for the Syrian Army said.
“Let us thank you [the Russian Defense Ministry] for the delivery of an advanced artillery tracker system to our soldiers, which will allow us to monitor the ceasefire across the country much more efficiently,” the spokesman said.
According to spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, operation of one of these systems in the area of El-Khalid in the city of Aleppo is currently being showed in a webcast on the official website of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
The Aistenok was first presented during the MVSV-2008 exhibition by Tula Research Institute Strela in 2008. The system is capable to perform tasks, associated with the discovery of various objects, both on the ground and in the air. The main task of the mobile radar system is to ensure the work of artillery units, in particular, determination of coordinates of enemy artillery and correcting fire of their guns. The Aistenok is designed to carry out surveillance of mortar firing positions and to monitor 81–120 mm mortar fire along the mortar shell flight trajectory; to survey tank type moving surface targets and monitor 122–155 mm artillery fire by shell explosions. The system is capable to trace fire of 81-120 mm mortar shelling of tanks from five kilometers distance, and 122-155 mm artillery units’ fire from twenty kilometers distance.
The Aistenok is made as a collapsible structure, which consists of a set of modules and can be moved by military personnel or transported by various vehicles. The total weight of system components is 135 kg. Assembling and preparation of the system to work takes about 5 minutes. The structure consists of a tripod with supporting-turning device, a transceiver with antenna, an electric machine with a power supply block, a block of primary processing of collected information, a remote control, and a radio communications set. Connection of elements of the system is carried out by a set of cables.
The Aistenok can be used at any time of a day and in any weather conditions, hindering the visual observation of a battlefield. A gasoline electrical unit is used to power the system. Time of continuous operation of the system from an independent power source is stated to be 6 hours.
Well this won’t help Syrians when they are bombed by the U.S. Recent reports are that U.S. bombed and killed 62 Syrian soldiers, injured 100 more, and in so doing helped ISIS retake land in Deir Ezzor. I don’t understand why Russia is so keen to make deals with the U.S. which has backed the rebel and terrorist groups, including ISIS.
they took back the lands in deir a ezzor the attacks failed and no the us killed 1 soldier ad injured 5 more soldiers and what do tyou want russia to do they are one country against nato and israel and the hole middle east i don’t understand why people judge russia like this they need the ceasefire to give food to the starving populations of allepo they have no choice
Many more support somebody in Syria and are against the terrorregime of Assads, which -as I only just heard at CNN – are bombarding Aleppo again.
Either you are with Assad or you are with the Terrorists
I thought Bush said that.
Fool me once ……can’t get fooled again!
Your “Either you are with Assad or you are with the Terrorists” is the main reason for the civil war.
You dont decide what I am or not. In my country I has the right to be myself.
This is what your president said 15 years ago. I never saw you around then?
Turn off your TV! Proxie war only gets you more proxie war and useful idiots from Beirut? (Only reason Beirut still exists is to keep you glued to your TV and laughing along with the commercial soundtrack and waiting for more pictures of pain suffering and flowing Marrowbone in between GEICO commercials) ain’t his little cockney drivel so cute? Join the navy don’t get drafted!
Russia is deluded, USrahell has put them in a daydream of partnership and there are commentators that hail this as a master stroke of genious chessmaster Putin.
USAF is practically the ISIS airforce now.
Ha-ha. At least check as You need glasses. US and 66 others has figted against ISIS for years and are also blamed for using Kurds as groundtroops for it.
And the You write USaf practically is and ISIS support.
You must be barking mad. Visit a doctor too, if You are in an so far unbombed hospital in Syria.
You rite like 4 grader
Not just practically. It is so in every sense, ideologically, politically, militarily and of course practically.
Completely IDF either way!
Hope for them, that they can put the radar down fast or its mobile. Radars often are easy targets if other radars are open,and many are.
But if they can be kept alive – and they have accurate artillery or others meseaures, they can be usefull. Dont sleep with it open.
Drone baiting! Set this baby up at a big fake wedding party and pick them off one at a time -all night long? Nothing like the feel of losing all your birds in one night!
There never was a deal! Your telly been lying to you for so long you don’t remember nothing! The phrase “without coordination” was the key part? GAME ON? Nothing gets a war hotter than broken peace? Your government and your media are well paid puppets guided by some Zionist leader thousands of kilometers away?
