Now this complex will be able to do their job on the front edge of a possible military conflict that will provide overcharge effectiveness of electronic warfare.
Russian military, namely the forces of the REB has long been awaiting emergency vehicles with electronic warfare equipment for light wheeled chassis. All delivered earlier machines EW were constructed on the basis of trucks or on the basis of the type of caterpillar transporters.
