After Krasukha-4, Now Ukraine Forces Capture Barnaul-T, One Of Putin’s Latest Air Defence Systems
Ukrainian forces continue to capture Russia’s most sophisticated ground combat hardware. Recent social media pictures show a Russian radar-equipped air defense command post vehicle under Ukrainian possession. The radar unit is part of a larger system known as the Barnaul-T air defense system. Reports say the Ukrainian troops found the radar unit relatively intact. The captured unit is intended to serve as a sensor, command, control, and communications node all rolled into one. Experts say it could become an intelligence goldmine for Ukrainian and foreign governments.
