Description: The Phazotron NIIR Corporation's Zhuk is a family of advanced multifunctional multimode Doppler-pulse radars designed to provide air-to-air and air-to-surface combat modes for upgraded models of the Mig-29 Fulcrum and Su-27 Flanker aircraft families. Zhuk radars feature a maximum detection range from 110 to180 kilometers for airborne targets and 300 kilometers for sea targets. These radars can track and engage several targets simultaneously guiding sophisticated air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons. Zhuk family utilizes both steered and phased array antennas.

In the air-to-air mode, the Zhuk radar can provide guidance for the latest generation of Russian-made missiles such as R-77, R-73 and R-27 as well as detection of a wide spectrum of airborne targets including hovering helicopters. In addition, the Zhuk radar also provides weather information. In the air-to-surface mode, the radar provides a 3x3 meters resolution ground mapping and support for low-altitude navigation. In the air-to-sea mode, the radar system can detect a destroyer-sized target at ranges of 300 kilometers or a small target, such as a patrol boat, at 150 kilometers.

The Zhuk-MSFE features a phased array radar antenna and is intended for the Su-27 aircraft. It can detect airborne targets with a five square meters Radar Cross Section (RCS) at ranges of 170-180 kilometers in the forward hemisphere or 60 kilometers in the rear hemisphere while tracking 30 targets and engaging six of them simultaneously. It can track up to four ground/sea targets simultaneously. In the air-to-ground mode, the Zhuk-MSFE is capable of detecting armored formations at ranges of 30 kilometers and railway bridges at ranges of 130 kilometers. The phased array Zhuk-MSFE is the most capable version of the Zhuk family of airborne radar systems.
