Russia’s air defence system can control the air space of Georgia on its own, without Georgian radar assistance
Russia’s air defence system can control the air space of Georgia on its own, without Georgian radar assistance, the Russian Air Force’s deputy commander, Lieutenant-General Aitech Bizhev, said. “The means of the Georgian air force and air defence did not participate in command and staff training of the CIS allied air defence system today,” he told reporters on Thursday. “We worked in the Caucasus today with Armenia and with the 4th Air Army of the Russian Air Force,” he said. “We abolish the Georgia gap that exists in the radar field using A-50 planes. A Russian radar warning plane scrambled today over Mozdok and fully surveyed the territory as far as Turkey,” the general said. “We have direct communications channels with the command post of the Georgian air force. Their air-defence system was, we’ll put it straight, weak, there was almost no radar field, and for this reason we abolish these shortcomings with the help of our planes A-50.” “The Russian plane MiG-31 is able to effectively fulfil radar survey tasks. We can post in the area of the border with Georgia three-four of these planes that are able to view the whole radar situation and pass information to A-50,” Bizhev said.
