Russian military units get cutting-edge electronic warfare systems

Russia’s Western Military District has received about 10 state-of-the-art electronic warfare systems, including the Krasukha-4 broadband multifunctional jamming stations, Igor Migunov, the District’s press service chief, told journalists on Monday.

“About 10 brand-new electronic warfare systems have put into service with the military units of the Western Military District as part of the 2016 state defense order. They include several Krasukha-4 mobile VHF/UHF jammers,” Migunov went on to say.

According to him, experts on electronic warfare systems are going to test the new systems during field exercises in January.

The Krasukha-4 electronic warfare system is intended for countering an adversary’s radars of the strike and reconnaissance, unmanned aircraft and drones. The capacities of a broadband interference station make it possible to effectively combat against all modern radar stations, which are used on modern aircraft.
