Estonia retires last Soviet-era radars
Tallinn, March 8 - Estonia's air defence forces have dismantled their last obsolete Soviet-made radars, the country's armed forces said.
One P-37 type radar will be installed as a monument at the Amari military base, while another will be sent to an aviation museum.
At present, two radar stations monitor Estonia's airspace - a TPS-77 at Kallavere, in western Estonia and an ASR-8 at Amari, not far from Tallinn.
Later this month, a new radar station will be opened on Muhu Island featuring a medium-range Ground Master 430 3D air-defence radar with an effective range of up to 470 km and an altitude of up to 30 km.
Another post-Soviet republic, Belarus, said in February it would replace a Russian radar station with an indigenous one and dispose of its Russian-made Sukhoi Su-27 fighters. (IANS)
