The Syrian army received a new generation of portable surveillance radar systems from Russia.

The Russian radar systems called FARA-I detects movable targets such as military servicemen and vehicles from a distance of 4 kilometers, the Russian-language media outlets reported.

The FARA-I is a lightweight and non-bulky radar system which can be carried by one man, but it need two persons for operation.

The Russian-made radar is multifunctional and can be used as a reconnaissance tool or as a camera for automatic weapons.

The FARA-I radar system can operate and track the enemies' positions under the most difficult conditions such as rainy weather, fog and smog.

One of the most important characteristics of FARA-I is its capability to be used in sandstorms such as Syria's deserts.

In a relevant development in December and following the incident involving the Russian Su-24M bomber which was shot down by a Turkish F-16 over Syria on the Turkish border, Russia deployed its latest anti-aircraft missile system – the S-400 to Syria, also deploying the missile cruiser Moskva and the submarine Rostov-on-Don off the shores of Syria in the Mediterranean.

The S-400 Triumf (NATO reporting name SA-21 Growler) is Russia's next-generation air defense system, carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at short-to-extremely long range.

In late November, the S-400 systems were deployed at the Hmeimim airbase near the Syrian port city of Lattakia to protect anti-terror operations by Russia’s Aerospace Forces. The decision was made one day after Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 aircraft, FNA reported.
