More impressive is Ukraine’s claim that a 9S19 Imbir ballistic and aero-ballistic missile detection and tracking system was destroyed. This is a radar complex used in the operation of the S-300B air defense system. 9S19 Imbir is capable of detecting Pershing-type missiles at a distance of up to 200 km.

Ukrainian sources suggest that Russia sent this radar to detect the GMLRS launched by the M142 HIMARS or M270 missile systems. It is curious to note that Russia has a small amount of 9S19 Imbir in its inventory. According to open source information [OSINT] data, the Russian army has only 20 units of this radar.
