Russian Radars Document Turkish Cease Fire Violations

Russian Military Sets Up High-Tech Radar System in Syria

Radar system Zoopark

The Russian Army as set up electronic systems which allows monitoring violations of ceasefire in Syria.

Over the past three days three modern complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles and two radars detecting small targets have been deployed to Syria.

The Zoopark-1 missile and artillery ground reconnaissance complexis designed to automatically determine the coordinates of enemy artillery positions (mortars, field artillery, rocket volley fire systems and tactical missile launch positions) to provide target sighting information to its own countermeasure equipment, as well as to monitor its own firing results.

The design of the ‘Zoopark-1’ complex was started in the Soviet Union back in the 1980s as a replacement to APK-1 ‘Ris’ complex. The new complex is mounted on the chassis of a MTLB truck.

The Zoopark-1 intelligence and radar complex is completely autonomous and it takes about five minutes to deploy. The complex can conduct reconnaissanceof positions of up to 17 kilometers and target artillery with a minimum bore size of 82-120 millimeters.

The gun’s caliber is 105-155 millimeters and has a distance of 12 kilometers. It has a multiple launch systems with ranges up to 22 kilometers and tactical missiles that can travel up to 45 kilometers.

The complex is capable of detecting up to 70 firing positions in a minute, while tracking up to 12 targets.

The cessation of hostilities in Syria came into force at the end of February. Nearly a hundred opposition parties supported the truce. The groups that didn’t fall under the truce were Daesh and al-Nusra Front terrorists.

    I both do and don’t understand Syria and Russia’s restraint about turkey and others.
    the world knows who’s supporting mercenary terrorists to wage illegal WAR, and no matter how much documentation is presented to the “mainstream media” and “United NAZI-ons” that is controlled by the same terrorist supporters, they aren’t ever going to admit what they’re really doing, even when they DO admit it, they deny it with pure BS! it is all ridiculous with exception to all the real victims, false “leaders” who have been terrorists supporting terrorism for years would call efforts to remove their mass murdering butts from power “terrorism” when it amounts to common sense and a desire to survive.

    This certainly looks like the right way to silence the Turkish guns. They can now either stand down or watch their guns get hit.

    More good news from Syria.

      I’d rather see their military turn on him (erDOGan) for being a freaking psycho recklessly endangering everyone to guarantee money keeps going into his own family’s pockets.
