Russian radar "Casta-2E1" in the colors of the Ukrainian flag spotted on the territory of the LPR

For the first time, the OSCE recorded the presence of the Russian radar 51U6 "Casta-2E1" on the territory of Donbass. The UAV of a short range of observers noticed it without any particular difficulty, since it was not just not masked, but was covered with material in the colors of the Ukrainian flag, the yellow tint of which is clearly visible from the air.

The station is located at a military training ground near the urban-type settlement of Bugaevka (37 km south-west of Luhansk and 30 km from the contact line), which is under the control of the LPR.

51U6 "Casta-2E1" is a two-coordinate mobile solid-state radar station in the decimeter range. It is used to control the airspace, determine the coordinates and affiliation of flying objects, including those moving at low and extremely low altitudes, in a difficult jamming environment. Serially produced in the period 1989-2003. The radar can operate at temperatures from -50 ° С to +50 ° С in conditions of various atmospheric precipitations, winds up to 25 m / s, being at an altitude of up to 2000 m.

Note that in November 2020, the OSCE recorded presence on the territory of the LPR of the newest Russian complex "Navodchik-2" (ground control station and boxes with UAVs).

    Well? What was the idea? What kind of a blanket of cheerful colors?

    Stirlitz did not understand the close attention of the patrols. What is it about a Russian intelligence officer? Roofing felts budenovka over the SS uniform, roofing felts a parachute dragging behind ...

    This means that the Luhansk soldiers did not go far from the Karabakh eagles, only a coward was masked there, but the result is known

    Katryuli boil merrily, all Sumeria rejoices.
    Today, Lavrenty came to visit us. Palych ... belay In my opinion, I'm not talking about that laughing
    Have you found Buryat mountain divers again? sad
    1) This is a Soviet radar station.

    Serially produced during the period 1989-2003 years.

    2) How were they able to determine what the technique was?
    It looks like 51U6

    And this is what the earlier Soviet version 35N6 looks like.

    3) Amazing visual acuity for the OSCE staff. How could they identify the modification under the awning so precisely? Not otherwise, the life-giving zhovto-blockid banner helped. Previously, they had problems with vision.

    In general, again a provocation, they will aggravate, squeal, demand a sanction. OSCE garbage dump worse than the ECHR.

    A earnest request to the Ukrainian "patriots" and the local fifth ... "leg" to expose the aggressor and tell by what characteristic features they were able to determine the modification.
    I recommend to those wishing to find the first photo (under the title) in Google. The result of similar pictures is funny and revealing. Google knows what the OSCE is laughing

    The thing is not fresh. And it stands openly, covered with a well-visible flag. There are two options: either there is simply no one cares about everything (DB), or "shine" on purpose ... For what purpose (X3)?

    A distracting maneuver from something else, otherwise the logic is not traced at all.
