According to the Russian and Armenian media, Russia has deployed its all-new Nebo-M mobile multiband radar system to the Russian base in the northern city of Gyumri.
Recently, 10 units of 55Zh6M Nebo-M radar systems were delivered to the Russian Defense Forces from the manufacturer, Nizhny Novgorod Research Institute of Radio Engineering.
The Nebo-M is a 3D radar system that features a programmable multi-band design. The radar complex is made up of a central data fusion, a command post module and three radars which are deployed on separate 8 x 8 24-ton trucks.
Earlier last week, it was reported that Nebo-Ms were deployed in Russia to counter any threat stemming from NATO anti-ballistic missile systems in Eastern Europe.
Armenia and Russia signed a joint air defense agreement in late 2016.
