According to the Russian publication “Rossiiskaya Gazeta“, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has begun to use a sophisticated Russian radar system that is known as the “Fara-1”.

The Fara-1 is an elite radar system that can detect any human movement at a distance of 2 km and any tank at a distance of 4 km.

The website “warfare.be” describes the Fara-1 as the following:

“The FARA-1 is all-weather automatic surveillance radar to detect moving targets (personnel and vehicles) against background of earth and water surfaces.

It is intended to:

Monitor terrain areas and detect moving objects at a range of up to 4 km, acquire polar coordinates of the detected objects, lay the NNP-23 Night Vision Optical Device, as well as various automatic weapons (7.62 mm PKMSN Machine Gun, 12.7 mm NSVS Machine Gun and AGS-17 Grenade Launcher, etc.) on the target in poor optical visibility;

Guard territories in automatic mode and generate light and sound warning signals upon detecting an intruder.

The warning signal can be transmitted to the Control Post via radio channel.

The radar provides acquisition, tracking of the selected target, its type identification by the operator using head-phones.

Operational modes and algorithms can be customized in accordance with the real situation.

Low weight of the FARA-1 Radar makes it particularly attractive for ground forces, rapid deployment and law enforcement units.

The radar can be installed on a tripod, a tree, a building roof, a watch towers, or it can be carried on a strap. It can also be mounted on ground vehicles.”

This latest technology should boost the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses; especially, against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists that attack at night.

It is convenient to both sides. SAA to boost their defenses and Russia to field test their latest toys…

THANK YOU, RUSSIA! In spite of the lying, deceiving, falsely accusing and villifying mainstream media – the truth shines through about your goodness! – God bless you for every dollar you have spent and continue to in behalf of your sister country Syria. God multiply each dollar back to you many fold! Amen
