    Why couldn't the BRM-1 and the BRM-3 detect Ukrainian ambushes with their radars at the beginning of the war. They should be sensitive enough to detect rifles and ATGM mounts

    They detect inbound rounds... what are you suggesting... having these recon vehicles at the front and when any Orc force tries to ambush the Russian column these vehicles will detect the incoming rounds and what... tell the other vehicles to take cover because there are incoming rounds?

    A few seconds after the enemy fire those rounds they impact... even if they detected the enemy rounds as they left the muzzles of the weapons firing them how much time do you think that recon vehicle has to alert the rest of the convoy and what are they supposed to do in the fractions of a second before those rounds impact their targets?

    Having battle field radar does not stop enemy artillery from being used or ambushes being sprung, but they do record the direction and origin of the fire which can be passed to nearby artillery and helicopter units so they can deal with the source of fire relatively quickly.

    that means enemy forces will still ambush and still attack Russian forces but if they do their job properly they only get to do it once and might be spotted by drone before they open fire so they might not get any shots off... but that would be rare I would say.... or should I say very lucky.

    In an ambush by the time the enemy are firing you don't need a radar vehicle to tell you it is an ambush.
