Yeah, counter-battery radar has been around for a while, but I thought this radar was some sort of early-warning device... is it? If so, how much warining time would you have. Hence my question about artillery shell hang time since I know that tank projectiles fly at about a mile per second. At that rate you would have between 1/2 second and 15 seconds of time between the shell being fired and hitting the target. But artillery fires in an angle instead of a relatively straight line so I cannot deduce what kind of warning time you have. There I've laid my thought process out so I can get a clear answer on just how much early-warning time you get with the radar.
There seems to be no info regarding the time you get.
Its actually both, early warning and counter artillary radar. It can 100 shells a minute, giving this information to a artillary battary, with exact cordinates of the target.
Theres seems to be a problem to get info from Ericsson, they're always secreat about everything military equipment they make.
