Meet Russia’s Don-2N Missile Defence Radar.

The Russians claim the radar system is immune to stealth technology and electronic jamming and uses a gigantic antenna arrayed up to five kilometres long and five meters tall.
This advanced long range radar system can find a target as small as 5cm in diameter 2,000 km in orbit.
The primary function isnthe radar is to track the trajectory of American ballistic missiles.
The system is Russia’s first over the horizon radar system, giving it the ability to detect targets at very long ranges.
