    Voronezh-DM type radar station

    Post  JohninMK on Mon Nov 21, 2016 1:24 am

    Russian defense enterprises are to build a heavy-duty radar station to warn of potential missile strikes on Russia, according to Sergei Boyev, chief executive of the holding company that will construct the missile attack warning system.

    The Voronezh-DM type radar station will be deployed in Russia's northwest near the city of Murmansk (1,160 miles north of Moscow), where Boyev says it "will cover the main missile-threat direction" in the western area.

    The new station will be able to detect ballistic, space and aerodynamic objects, including cruise missiles.

    A continuous radar coverage along the perimeter of Russia is now in place, with 7 stations. https://regnum.ru/news/polit/2220812.html?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=lentainform&utm_campaign=regnum.ru&utm_term=1245878s10306&utm_content=4961283
    Voronezh-DM" in the district of Yeniseisk Krasnoyarsk Territory for the 1st time detected a missile launch from the United States. https://sputniknews.com/military/201610081046140686-new-russian-radar-worth-the-price/
    The article says 10 stations r planned-so, r the 7 already built enough or not? I guess now they don't have to use their AWACS & MiG-31 planes as much for routine/extra AD patrolling along their borders!

    Well, not really. The smallest blind spot on Russia's missile detection shield could be easily exploited by a potential enemy.

    This is the map of the currently working/under construction/proposed "Voronezh"radars.


    From here: Arrow http://www.milkavkaz.net/2016/08/kakovo-sostoyanie-protivoraketnoj-oborony-vks-rf.html

    I listed them for you: (Operational, under construction, proposed)

    (from West to East)

    - Pionerskiy (Voronezh-DM) (Kaliningrad)
    - Lekhtusi (Voronezh-M) (Leningrad region)
    - Olenegorsk (Voronezh-VP) (Murmansk region)
    - Armavir (Voronezh-DM) (Krasnodar region)
    - Orsk (Voronezh-M) (Orenburg region)
    - Vorgashor (Voronezh-M) (Komi Republic)
    - Barnaul (Voronezh-DM) (Altay region)
    - Yeniseisk (Voronezh-DM) (Krasnoyarsk region)
    - Mishelevka (Voronezh-DM) (Irkutsk region)
    - Zeya (Voronezh-DM) (Amur region)

    In the list, I counted 6 in operational red, not 7. Agreed, it makes sense to have  more than absolute minimum to ensure & constant coverage + allow for maintenance, attrition/hostile action, natural disasters, etc. I can't access the map u posted.

    It's clear to me that the radars in Barnaul & Vorgashor will cover the gap in W.Siberia, N.Russia, Barents & Kara Seas & up to the N.Pole, Ukraine, Belarus, E.Poland & the Baltics. Pretty good way to monitor air & naval activity around the perimeter of Eurasia! They could also share intel. with China, N.Korea & Iran, if need be! But, can these radars detect low flying UAVs & cruise missiles?
