Russian Army deploys 1RL257 Krasukha-4 electronic warfare systems


According to TopWar.ru, the Russian army, in order to protect its forces, is deploying new electronic warfare battalions equipped with the latest jamming systems that have been “tested” on NATO military equipment. 1RL257 Krasukha-4 mobile systems were previously deployed for testing in Syria, where they were tested on F-16 fighters and Turkish Air Force drones.

The systems of the Krasukha family developed by KRET are designed to protect troops from guided weapons and precision strikes: they jam GPS, radio communications and other means of navigation, as well as cell phone signals, whether civilian or military. Krasukha-4 is used, in particular, to jam the signals of satellites moving in low orbit, as well as AWACS aircraft and other carriers of onboard radar systems.

The first unit equipped with Krasukha-4 was recently deployed less than 50 km from the Ukrainian border and the city of Kharkiv in northeastern Ukraine. It became part of the 3rd Motor Rifle Division.

In Syria and near the borders of Ukraine, which have become “grounds for experiments”, the operation of the Krasukha systems led to GPS communication failures during combat missions of drones of the U.S. and Turkish Air Forces, as well as Turkish F-16 fighters.
