The government of the Kamchatka Territory acquired and sent five sets of electronic warfare equipment to the Northern Military District zone, the press service of the regional government reported to RIA Novosti. They explained that the equipment is in great demand in combat conditions since it allows one to neutralize unmanned aerial vehicles.
Five complexes have already been manufactured and sent to the special military operation zone. This is very serious expensive equipment. If the military personnel give a positive assessment, then we will continue to supply electronic warfare systems next year,” said Sergei Merkulov, head of the administration of the governor of the Kamchatka Territory.
Merkulov added that in 2024, the purchase of the necessary equipment for the NVO participants from Kamchatka will continue. The first step will be to purchase cars, communications equipment, and drones.
Earlier, military expert Andrei Klintsevich said that the combat experience of the SVO allows Russia to develop electronic warfare ( EW ) systems faster and better than NATO does. According to him, the need to adapt to changing combat conditions is spurring the work of domestic engineers working in this field.
Before this, the Ruselectronics holding, part of the Rostec state corporation, presented the Chistyulya complex to protect soldiers from drones and missiles hitting radio-emitting targets. The new development is a case weighing up to 8 kg, equipped with three types of antennas.
