The new radar with active phased antenna array helps fulfil missions in complicated weather conditions and jamming by the adversary. "The use of the active phased antenna array increases the target detection range to 160 kilometers. The radar can simultaneously operate in air-to-air and air-to-surface regimes, identify and classify group and single objects, attack several of them with high-precision weapons, transmit data on tactical situation to other aircraft and engage in radio-electronic warfare," the press service said.
