Ukraine to receive six Amber-1800 radars from Lithuania

May 17, 2024

Ukraine will receive new military aid from Lithuania. We are talking about six Amber-1800 radars.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the website of the German Ministry of Defense.

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius praised Lithuania's strong support for Ukraine in its fight against Russia's aggressive war. He added that Lithuania reaches an extremely high level of military assistance.

Pistorius also said that the accompanying sale of six Amber-1800 radar systems is Lithuania's contribution to saving lives in Ukraine.

“Thank you also for your participation in our air defense initiative,” he said.

This is a ground-based mobile radar station. It was developed in Lithuania by LitakTak. The station is designed to automatically detect air objects, their azimuth, and range coordinates.

In Ukraine, the station is localized under the name Burshtyn-1800. It is mounted on a semi-trailer, and in 2019, a sample was demonstrated on a KrAZ-7634 chassis.
