  • Soviet Radar Control of Aviation on the Eastern Front

    What exactly was the role of RADAR and the functional radar equipment basis (TO&E) of Soviet Aviation on the Eastern Front?

    The Soviets were given many UK & US radars via lend lease, and had their own domestic radar systems, but I have yet to find good sources on their use in support of Soviet military aviation.

    Does anyone know English language sources for that sort of data?

    Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

        Interesting, the navweapons site listed 570 radars being produced in total for the Soviets in WW2.

        The "Onairpower" site lits a total of 607 radars of just the RUS-2 type built by 1945.

        Are we looking at post August 1945 production being included in the WW2 total here?

          I suppose this site only mentions ship-mounted radars, hence the notable absence of RUS-1 and RUS-2.

            This link is in Spanish but easily read using Google Translate.

            But it is the single best on-line source I have seen on Soviet Radar organization in the Great Patriotic War.

              A similar trick with Google Translate can be done with this site:
