The source is kind of suspect. AFAIK Rubin and the Chinese are already working on joint development of conventional submarines.
Strategic submarines are still considered state secret. But other countries have helped build nuclear submarines, for example the French are doing this in Brazil. I wouldn't be surprised if China could get Russian help with things like the hull or overall design but the propulsion unit and power reactor probably secret.
Its called the Yenisei system. Wonder what would be the NATO reporting name for this radar system later. Its a highly automated APAR radar system. It also has a passive surveillance mode. Its about time Russia gets its own ground-based APAR radar system.The
The system is a completely digital radar with an active phased-array antenna. It’s an active-passive radar that can conduct reconnaissance, detect aircraft and designate targets for air defense weapons without going live. In other words, Yenisei is capable of conducting radio
Yenisei, for instance, can send information about targets to the multifunctional radars of the S-400 and S-500 missile systems. The S-500 Prometheus systems are expected to be
Yup this is one of the desired characteristics of APAR/AESA radars. They are very resistant to jamming.The Yenisei radar is equipped with remote-control stations, which allows it to effectively deal with jamming. For instance, the US Air Force has been so successful in many local conflicts because in almost every case, the air-defense systems employed by America’s opponents were neutralized by powerful and well-organized jamming systems.
They wouldn’t derail the Yenisei though. That’s because it traces and assigns targets with higher precision when countering powerful jamming. It is safe to assume that by accepting Yenisei into service, the Russian Aerospace Forces have removed the Americans’ tactical advantage.
100km ceiling and horizontal detection of 600km is quite impressive. That's a world-leading specification for a mobile ground-based radar system.The system is very mobile, with a setup/teardown time of under five minutes. For better mobility, it has no outriggers, unlike the 96L6 all-altitude surveillance radar. Of course, the mechanical “paws” to level the system are still there, but they are extended straight into the tracks and not on the sides.
All in all, the Yenisei system is capable of detecting air targets flying over 100 km above ground (basically at the boundary between the Earth's atmosphere and outer space) and more than 600 km away. It guarantees continued tracing. It is a versatile system that accurately detects air targets and designates them for air-defense weapons
