Author hang noodles on the ears. What are the frequencies of the AWACS he knows, and that 200 megahertz - a UHF band, he does not understand. I saw the aerial banners, and did not understand what a range. And the size of the antenna can determine the wavelength of the radiation. Now, remember the Popova at the time were spark transmitters, frequency band emitted enormous. In the USSR proposed to use such generators for interference-free communication. Sitting on the couch picking your nose, you can not know the parameters of the equipment. Mishandled Cossack!
To me, this article is absolutely useless/pointless. Not only are they speculating everything (no actual data or evidence), but they are assuming a lot and cutting the systems down quite a bit from what I can read here. So far, we have a member here who stated how NATO is having a fun time getting info and getting jammed pretty hard. So I call BS on this article.
Edit: I just read through its article on electronics import substitution and how it wont work. What a load of shit. Didnt even bother even to mention about T-Platforms or their Baikal electronics subsidiary. Didn't bother to talk about the advancements actually made (mentioned a 300mhz elbrus processor but not the Elbrus 4C as an example or upcoming 8C). Then no mention of the Baikal T or upcoming M. No mention the new software available and upcoming. No mention about other plants like the one in St.Pete producing additional components only the one in Kazan, etc. I would say it was a total failure of an article.
The good, bad and ugly my friend. The truth always lies somewhere in between.
Yes it does. But definitely not on the claims of your link. Specifically the fact that he doesn't bring to the table evidence but a statement. We actually do not know the specifications, but what Airbornwolf says is true, then kinda makes this article useless.
His article on the technology aspect of it also gives me indication that this VPK-Name website is garbage 5th column crap. Cause it really doesn't take much effort to do some research and already disprove a lot of claims. Some of the posts are not bad. But the titles to their pages are cringe worthy, much like the Globe and Mail or the Inquirer.
