Voronezh-DM highly prefabricated radar station of the missile attack warning system will be also put on trial combat alert duty in West Siberia’s Altai territory this year, the general said on Wednesday.
Missile attack warning stations Voronezh-DM in Krasnoyarsk and Altai territories will be fifth and sixth among similar radar stations, which will be deployed along Russian borders to control space, lands and water surface to avert a sudden launch of strategic missiles of a probable enemy on Russian territory. Before this similar radar stations have already been brought into service in the settlement of Lekhtusi outside the Russian northern capital of St. Petersburg, westernmost Kaliningrad region, near the city of Armavir in southern Russia’s Krasnodar territory and near the city of Usolye-Sibirskoye in East Siberia’s Irkutsk region.
All missile launches from this territory will be immediately detected by satellites of the space control system and the information about a launch will be transmitted to the early missile warning radar station. The electronic computer system of the radar station will calculate a missile flight trajectory, the place of its dropping and will transmit this information to Moscow, to the Central Command Post of Aerospace Defense Troops in Moscow regional town of Solnechnogorsk. And then after a report to the president and his order a decision will be taken for further actions, if a missile poses a threat to security of Russia and its population - to intercept an attacking missile, deliver a retaliatory strike or a retaliatory counter-strike. Meanwhile, all this should be done in few minutes. If a probable enemy is aware of such Russian combat capabilities, he will hardly dare to take such a thoughtless action, the military affirm.
