"The Airborne Force has put Barnaul-T automated control systems into operation for the first time to provide reliable cover for its air defense formation in the area of its amassment," the press office said.

According to the press office, the Barnaul-T air defense control system recently made operational with units of the Airborne Force’s formation based in Pskov allows reducing considerably the time needed for searching for and destroying any aerial targets.

The drills will also involve a Polyot-K automated troops and fire control system, artillery fire control equipment integrated into the Andromeda-D single automated control system, new communications means, early aerial target acquisition systems and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The maneuvers in the Pskov Region that involve more than 2,500 paratroopers and 300 items of military hardware will last through February 20.

Airborne Force Commander Vladimir Shamanov is expected to assess the operation of the units at the final stage of the maneuvers.

The Barnaul-T air defense control system is designed to detect aerial targets and control air defense systems of the Army, marine units and the Airborne Force. The systems uses the 9S932-1 intelligence and control module with 1L122-1E radar mounted on an MT-LBu tracked chassis.
