Russia is developing large airships that will be equipped with ballistic missile defense radars. Vladimir Mikheev, an executive at Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET), said the large body surface of airships makes them suitable for radar systems. Mikheev added that some of these airships would be used to create an anti-ballistic missile defense shield, reports Sputnik News.

Yet another feather in Russia’s military cap

KRET said these radars will be fully capable of detecting inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and the flight trajectories of their re-entry vehicles. The company has signed deals with a number of Russian airship-making firms to develop on-board electronic systems. A subsidiary of state-owned Rostec, KRET is Russia’s biggest radio-electronic systems maker.
