Advanced radio jamming systems Pole-21 will arrive for troops in Russia’s Central Military District for the first time in 2019 under the rearmament program, Electronic Warfare Chief in the District’s Staff Major-General Sergei Portnykh said on Monday.

“We are the leaders in fulfilling the rearmament program in the Central Military District. Currently, we operate over 60% of new types of armament and military hardware, including Krasukha, Murmansk and Borisoglebsk-2 electronic countermeasures systems, and also Silok new electronic warfare complexes intended to fight unmanned aerial vehicles,” the general said.

“This year, we are expecting the arrival of Pole-21 jamming modules to counter unmanned aerial vehicles and lower the efficiency of employing cruise missiles,” he added.

The Pole-21 jamming modules will arrive for the electronic warfare troops of Russia’s Central Military District for the first time, the District’s press office stressed.

The Pole-21 radio jamming modules are designated to protect vital facilities of the armed forces and the country’s infrastructure from precision weapons, such as enemy cruise missiles, smart bombs and drones. The Pole-21 allows electronic warfare troops to suppress signals transmitted via GPS, Galileo and Beidou satellite channels.

Russia’s Central Military District is based on the territory of the Volga, Urals and Siberian integrated federal districts and 29 Russian regions. Structurally, the Central Military District also includes some overseas facilities: the 201st military base in Tajikistan, the Kant integrated military base in Kyrgyzstan and units stationed on the territory of Kazakhstan.

So in case of Pole-21 around, you just need to switch to GLONASS 😉
