An informed source remarked:

– By the end of the year, the electronic countermeasures forces will receive a few other Krasukha systems in the framework of the state defense order. They will serve as modules for more sophisticated global radio electronic suppression systems.
In 2012, the military bought the first series-made models of Krasukha-2 system having a narrower specialty. It is intended for counteraction to air targets alone like AWACS, flying radars like American Е-8 Joint Star and unmanned aerial vehicles like Global Hawk and Predator.

Together they can fully cover land plots of a few hundreds of kilometers from radar detection and can damage the enemy electronic and communication means. Their main principle of work is creation of powerful interferences in all main frequencies of radars and other radio emitting sources.

Externally, they look like ordinary radars on automotive platform BAZ-6910 with eight wheels. They have been developed and are produced at enterprises of Corporation Radio Electronic Technologies. This is the biggest designer and manufacturer of electronic countermeasures systems in Russia.

Independent military expert Anton Lavrov explains that Krasukha should fulfill tasks on the operational tactical level but according to resolution of the General Staff.

The expert adds:
– This means that the systems are not within brigades and combined-arms armies but represent means of comprehensive command in important areas where big conflicts are expected. Their range varies from 150 to 300 kilometers. Such system is not necessary for combating of rebels and bandit underground. First of all, it is intended for war against a hi-tech enemy.

Work on Krasukha systems began in 2009. State tests have been done and the first systems have been supplied in an experimental way since 2010.
