The equipment has recently been received under the state defence order for arming the EW troops of the Central Military District. The complex is mounted on the basis of Kamaz army truck, designed for conducting radio reconnaissance and suppression of satellite communication lines of the enemy.

As part of the cluster of electronic warfare equipment, other modern weapons will be presented:

-- the "Krasukha-S4" jamming station; and
-- the "Leer-3" complex based on the "Orlan-10" UAV, which provides reconnaissance and hidden radio suppression of the enemy's mobile subscriber terminals.

The international military-technical forum "Army-2020" will be held at the Sverdlovsky training ground in the period from 27 to 29 August. This year, the organizers have increased the static display of modern weapons, military and special equipment by a third.

More than 150 new and upgraded weapons will be displayed at the forum. The forum will host a scientific and business program with the participation of leading defense companies, an exhibition of modern and historical military equipment.
