The Inner Ring, approximately 14 nm from the center of the city consists of four early warning radar sites.

The previous- ly reported Radar Order of Battle at these sites could neither be confirmed nor denied due primarily to the photography. No communication 25X1 facilities were observed at any of these Inner Ring Sites. Outer Ring Sites 25X Detailed photographic analysis of the Outer Ring Sites revealed the presence of a TALL KING Radar t five installations. A TALL KING Radar is located at Bryansk, Michurinsk and Pravdinsk (Gorkiy) Sites and a TALL KING signature is evident at Andreapol (Toropets) and Cherepovets Sites. At the latter two sites the TALL KING Antenna was not actually observed, due to image Approved For Regap 29/7: 25X1 25X1 25XI L 25X1 L t L TOP SECRET I I 25X1 ved For Release 2003/05/05 : CIA-RDP78T05161A000300010001-5 25X1 CIA, PHOTOGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE DIVISION CIA PIR-101 5 limitations. Additional radar equipment could not be identified at the Outer Ring Sites on i photography. A TALL KING Radar was reported in the NORAD Weekly Intelligence Report of 23 April 1965, operating at a site 2 kilometers south of the Moscow-Brest High- way, 398 kilometers from Moscow, the location of Smolensk Early Warning Radar Site. However, the existence of this TALL KING could not be confirmed. The Bryansk Early Warning Radar Site was covered on good quality 0 25X1 photography. Identified at this site, in addition to the noted TALL KING Radar, were 2 probable GAGE-Type Radars, 2 probable PATTY-CAKE Radars, 2 probable FISH NET IFF, 2 probable KNIFE REST Radars, 1 probable BAR LOCK Radar and 1 probable TOKEN Radar. Communication facilities identified include 2 Dipole Antennas, 1 Rhombic Antenna and a probable mobile high-frequency communications facility with 4 probable electronic vans. Communication facilities observed at the Temnikov Early Warning Radar Site consist of 1 Rhombic Antenna and 2 probable Dipole Antennas. No apparent changes appear to have occurred at this site since previously reported in CIA-PIC/R-460. Positive identification of communication facilities could not be made at the remaining Outer Ring Sites due to small scale and vegetation, however, the existence of similar communication facilities can not be negated. 25X1 L L L REQUIRE= JNT C-S15-82,395 CIA/PID PROJECT 30462-5 Approved For Re 2%P(! 1R: 25X1 25X1 25X1 a CHERNOYE Ev RADAh.
