New radars 

Russian corvettes of project 20380 will get innovative radars which detect both aircraft, anti-ship missiles and small drones. Together with Redut air defense, the radars make the corvettes practically invulnerable for air attacks, the Izvestia daily writes.

The new radars with three stationary slates will be experimentally installed on two corvettes of the project - the Aldar Tsydenzhapov and the Rezky. Both are being built for the Pacific fleet. In case of successful trials, the radars will be installed on subsequent warships of the project, the Navy told the newspaper.

The antenna array of the new radar has three grids mounted on the foremast. The old radars interrupt the image because of rotating receiver-transmitter. The new radar provides an exact and uninterrupted image. It detects and identifies low-flying and small targets at a bigger distance. The new radars will help warships better fight cruise missiles flying at a low altitude to the target. Source
