“We continue buying new low-altitude radar stations Rosa. The stations are designed to detect targets up to 3-4km above the earth surface. They can work in an automatic mode without operators. We plan to ship another 3-4 radar stations like that to the radar units next year,” said the officer.

The army continues buying Belarus-made radar stations Vostok-D. Apart from that, air defense units continue modernization. “The amount of money required to buy one new weapon can be spent on quality repairs of up to five old weapons,” explained Oleg Dvigalev. “A number of contracts on modernization, primarily the modernization of radar equipment, have been signed with Belarusian companies”.

Oleg Dvigalev remarked that they would like to modernize air force units (for instance, for the sake of improving ergonomics in an aircraft cockpit) but there are certain difficulties involved in getting Russian manufacturers to agree to it. “It costs time and money. We have already learned how to save money because apart from the army Belarus has to take care of common citizens, teachers, medics, and other public sector employees,” he added.
