TYPE: Airborne command post and radio-relay aircraft
DESCRIPTION: The IL-22-M11RT airborne command post and radio-relay aircraft is designed to ensure reliable and uninterrupted communication when ground communication is disrupted. It can operate both as a command post and as a radio-relay station. The aircraft is equipped with the 83т035АМ radio-relay and communications equipment ('Selena-АМE' code). Its range, mobility and characteristics of combat readiness of troops control networks are unavailable for the ground analogues of such systems and this is very important under dynamic and unprepared conditions of war conflicts. The aircraft provides radio-relay and communication links via radio-relay, MW, DM and DMW channels, using equipment for cryptographic protection and against falsified data entry. It can relay information on a 'from any direction-to-any direction' principle.
