France hands over powerful air defense radar to Ukraine

Ukraine’s Defense Minister said that Ukrainians’ lives will be protected by a modern air defense radar that France will provide and which is so powerful that it can detect incoming missiles and drones in the sky above the Ukrainian capital and neighboring regions.

Aleksey Reznikov was so optimistic about the new “electronic eyes” that he quickly came up with a nickname for the Ground Master 200 radar – “Grandmaster”.

Speaking at the radar handover ceremony attended by his French colleague, Reznikov called the GM200 radar a “very effective” addition to Ukraine’s network of 300 different air defense radars.

Radar maker Thales said it can detect and track missiles, artillery and mortar shells, missiles, planes, drones and other threats.
