"About the fate of U.S. radar AN-TPQ-48 under Debaltsevo. Two similar radar were Webalias.com bridgehead of the brigade anthropy 128th mountain infantry brigade. The weapons are great, and greatly improved the combat effectiveness of the use of the Ukrainian artillery, " wrote Butusov on his page in Facebook." The problem is one of incomplete coverage. The enemy uses howitzers, MLRS much more active than mortars. One radar was damaged by enemy fire, shown in the inoperative condition, and delivered to the warehouse rocket-artillery armament 128 brigade on the springboard. Its parts were used to maintain the health of the second radar", he added. According to Him, "this second radar yesterday" organized conclusion was undermined by "." on the elimination of one radar drawn from the act, the event is confirmed. The remains of another radar on stock too were obliged to liquidate. But this is not done, "said Butusov, adding that" warehouse RAV was not undermined, and several boxes of parts of the radar fall into the hands of militias. According to the blog of the Center for analysis of strategies and technologies, 3 radar AN/TPQ-48A LCMR in November 2014 were transferred to the Ministry of defense of Ukraine from the presence of the American army as part of the American military assistance to Ukraine for the total amount of 118 million dollars.

When it is crystal clear that these data are incomplete.
