Ukraine sells Iran anti-stealth radar

Jane's Defence Weekly reports that Ukraine has sold Iran the Kolchuga radar system for an estimated $25 million each. Which is also capable of detecting stealth fighters over long distances.

Jane's goes on to describe the system as:

"The Kolchuga is intended to detect the take-off and formation of aircraft groups at ranges beyond those of existing radar, as well as determine the course and speed of targets while designating them for air-defence systems. It can identify aerial targets through their emissions and identify the mode of aircraft weapon control systems."
