Russian Air Force will receive a new radar for reconnaissance in the mountains
http://vpk.name/news/2302_vvs_rossii...i_v_gorah.htmlRadio engineering troops (TRI) of Russian Air Force will soon have a locator, which will effectively carry out reconnaissance in mountainous terrain.
"Now companies of the PK (Militasry Industrial Complex) are finalizing the work on hardware, which allows to implement a new method for conducting radar reconnaissance of polygonal objects, including in mountainous terrain," - CID chief Maj. Gen. Anatoly Boyarintsev told reporters .
"By deploying such a radar you can block the mountain gorge ", he said.
The general added that the CID has already deployed single samples of the new technology. ""This is a new trend, as till now we did not have any new technology being fielded"

Radar Barrier is bistatic radar with up to 10 stations in a chain, so it could more easily follow contour of mountains.
Oh, the horror, here they are, Borei's torpedo tubes, uncensored. EDIT: Or were, until I got yelled at. But trust me, they are secret only to officials. 8)
But look, official photos!!!
Shopped again and again!
This insistense at OPSEC for something that isn't even new (those are the same tubes as on Akula) just makes me a sad panda.

What a pleasant photo. 1 956, 3 1155s, 1 1164...would be nice to see a 22350 among them!
Finally this monstrosity will stop ruining Sevmash photos.

PS: There are so many things posted on this forum that are classed as DSP (Internal Use Only) it's not even funny. People don't even realise how many things in the Russian military/government are technically a secret and incur a liability if revealed. But that is a story for another day. 8)
