Russia’s Defence Ministry will put an early warning radar station in Kaliningrad Region on full combat duty in December 2014. This came in a statement by Deputy Defence Minister Yury Borisov following an inspection tour of the station deployed in Kaliningrad.

“The Voronezh-DM radar has almost completed a testing phase. The unique technical and tactical characteristics made this radar unparalleled to other systems of the kind. This radar station is at least on par with all foreign counterparts, while such qualities as precision make it stand out,” Mr. Borisov told reporters, noting that the radar covers almost all of Europe and the Atlantic Ocean.

According to previous reports, the Russian Defence Ministry planned to put two new radars on trial combat duty in the summer. It’s worth mentioning that the early warning radar station in Kaliningrad Region was put on trial combat duty in June 2014.
