American AN/TPQ-36 counter-battery radars have been delivered to Ukraine. A message about this appeared in the Ukrainian Telegram channel “Strana”.
We are talking about radars capable of detecting the location of mortars, artillery pieces and multiple launch rocket systems. It is specified that the weapons were supplied as part of a $100 million aid package announced by the US authorities on May 19.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby previously said the new package includes 18 155mm howitzers, 18 tractors to transport them, and three counter-battery radars.
The AN / TPQ-36 counter-battery radars appeared in the arsenal of the American army in the early 80s. They are designed to determine the coordinates of enemy firing positions in order to direct fire. The radius of their action is 24 km.
