Azerbaijan seized Russian electronic warfare systems Repellent-1 and Field-21M

A pair of Russian electronic warfare systems became trophies of the Azerbaijani army in Karabakh. The military captured Repellent-1 and Field-21M systems.

Here's What We Know

The short video shows the electronic warfare complexes that were abandoned by the Armenian military during the retreat from Karabakh. Judging by the footage, the units with equipment remained intact, unlike the monitors.

"Repellent-1 (pictured above) was unveiled in 2016. The control station is housed in an armoured chemical and bacteriological protection kung, while the electronic warfare station and a 360-degree camera are mounted on a 17-metre-high mast.

The Repellent-1 electronic warfare station can detect enemy unmanned aerial vehicles at a range of up to 35 kilometres. However, air threats are suppressed within a radius of 2.5 kilometres.

The Field-21 complex (pictured above) was also introduced in 2016. It is used to suppress satellite navigation channels. The Russians claim that the electronic warfare system is capable of covering an area of up to 150 square metres. In that case, the formula for the area of a circle tells us that the radius of action is less than 7 kilometres.
