Ukrainians are testing an innovative domestically produced radio-electronic reconnaissance station called RPS-7 Inhul, Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov reported on Twitter on July 9, sharing a video of the station.
After all stages are completed, it will be handed over for deployment in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The station is capable of detecting enemy radars, air defense systems, and aircraft at long distances. The soldiers informed the minister that thanks to this station, they were able to “see” Russian aircraft, including Il-20s over the Azov Sea, Il-22s, tactical aviation, and the operations of the Tor, Osa, and Zoopark air defense systems.
“Obtaining this information is critical for our artillery, which hunts down Russian military equipment,” explained Reznikov.
This project is being implemented not with state funds but with the assistance of designers, sponsors, and businesses, said Reznikov. He hopes that the Ministry of Defense will soon receive an official report from the brigade that will utilize the RPS-7 Inhul.
