Re: Russian radars Far North 1941-42

RLS <Pegmatite> adopted in 1941-1942 as RUS-2s (Radio Ulavlivatel' Samoletov 2 statsionarny), or P-2M, or "single-antenna RUS-2"
It's single-antenna version of the RUS-2 with a combined receiver-transmitter.
stationary option RUS-2s - 01.1942 (transported in packing crates by any transport). In April 1942 - P-2M station (was modernized). At the end of 1941, the automobile version was also adopted (1 car with a transmitter-receiver and 1 car with power supply).
At the end of 1943, several options were tested and adopted with additional equipment for determining the altitude of the target.

Re: Russian radars Far North 1941-42

Thank you very much for posting this. I was unaware of French radar developments and particularly enjoyed the information about Hungarian work. The radar developments in the USSR, while covered in some depth, still left me feeling like some connections were missing.


Best,
Ed

Another detailled article about Soviet radar development is
A Brief History of Radar in the Soviet Union and Russia by V.S. Chernyak and
I. Ya. Immoreev published in IEEE A&E SYSTEMS MAGAZINE, SEPTEMBER 2009.

Re: Russian radars Far North 1941-42

A long-standing book, subjective with many stereotypes of the 1960-1970s, but in the part of the Russian school of radar, it is very interesting.

Re: Russian radars Far North 1941-42

Hi guys

Many thanks for your most valuable and informative contributions.

I'm still endeavouring to establish the date of arrival at Murmansk of the first British GL Mark II - sometime in early 1942 (?) and the name of the merchant ship that conveyed it.

Hopefully one of our experts can advise me.

Cheers - and stay safe.

Brian

Re: Russian radars Far North 1941-42

I found a couple of Russian sites which discuss the Convoys. Using Google Chome allows the choice of an English translation.

https://forum.qrz.ru/55-radiomuzei-i...noy-armii.html

In post 14 of the above is a link to a site which gets into discussing the convoys. The site seems to be gone, but can be found in the Internet Archives:

https://web.archive.org/web/20070406...murm/1942m.htm

If I am reading the pages correctly, it appears that some 61 "Locators GL-2" were sent in 1942. The first 6 arrived in Convoy 13.

Re: Russian radars Far North 1941-42

There are several mentions in naval ULTRA for March 1945 of possible Russian radars when German warships in the Baltic are told to switch on their monitoring sets to listen out for possible land, ship or airborne radar sourcess. I haven't noticed anything about Arctic waters though.
