I would never guess. Original Zoopark is so different and on different vehicle, on the other side this one is so similar to Snow drift battery radar for Buk. I hope artillery units receive both Zoopark-1M and Credo-1S, which stand near Zoopark on photo.No that's the Zoopark-1M artillery detection radar.
The name is indeed confusing, also because the 2002 model of the original "Zoopark-1" was also called "Zoopark-1M".
Ukraine has by the way developed a very similar system, the 1L220-U "Zoopark-2".
May I ask, why they decide to change vehicle from MT-LBu to the one, which is common for air defense and not in other branches of Russian military. After all, MT-LBu is still in production for other command posts.
I'm not so sure that the MT-LBu is still in production. I highly doubt it actually. I rather think they are converting older vehicles (1V13-16 set for example) into new versions such as the R-149BMRg etc.
