Troops will train in electronic surveillance and electromagnetic suppression using the new Borisoglebsk-2V system, which is designed for battlefield deployment.

The newest Borisoglebsk-2V electronic warfare system has been received by the mechanized infantry formation stationed in the Republic of Buryatia, the head of the Eastern Military District's press service, Colonel Aleksandr Gordeyev announced on Monday.

'Representatives from the manufacturer are configuring the electronic equipment and will conduct personnel training,' Gordeyev said.

In the near future, electronic warfare specialists will practice using the system in a variety of roles such as locating sources of electromagnetic emissions and suppressing enemy communications.

The Borisoglebsk-2V system consists of several electronic systems mounted on the MT-LB amphibious all-terrain armored vehicle. Unlike its predecessors, it has a wider range of frequencies accessible for electronic surveillance and suppression as well as faster frequency scanning. In addition, the system has improved software and a more efficient user interface, allowing the user to conveniently switch systems.

The Borisoglebsk-2V was first shipped to the Russian Army in 2014 and was tested during the Vostok-2014 training exercises. It is manufactured by JSC Sozvezdie, part of the United Industrial Corporation.
