Defense: Belarus adopts domestically developed long-range radar

The Belarusian army has commissioned a new domestically developed long-range radar as it phases out Soviet-era equipment, the country’s defense ministry said Friday.

“The Belarusian-made Vostok-D radar has been put on combat duty in electronic warfare units,” the ministry’s spokesman said.

The Vostok-D is a truck-mounted 2D surveillance radar that operates in the VHF band.

It has an effective range of 360 kilometers (224 miles) and boasts high target-detection capability, including against low-flying aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Vostok-D has been designed to replace the Soviet-era P-18 (Spoon Rest D) radars currently in service with the Belarusian army.
