The Secret Of Chinese Weapons Will Open On India’s ‘Swathi’ Border


The Indian Army will install such a radar on the border of China very soon, which will find the weapons hidden behind the mountains, inside the valleys and in the forests and tell their location. The Indian Army had already put this radar on the border. But now, its upgraded mountain version will be deployed. The Army has asked Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) to make Swathi Mk-2 Weapon Locating Radar (Swathi WLR). However, no disclosure has been made regarding its price.

BEL head Anandi Ramalingam recently told the media they have additional orders for the Swathi Mk-2 mountain version. These will be used in high-altitude areas. At the same time, if people with knowledge of the defence industry are to be believed, the mountain version of the Swathi Mk-2 Weapon Locating Radar will be lighter than the Swathi-Array Mk-1 version. But the design will be the same—capacity more than ever. Let us know how this radar detects enemy weapons.

The Swathi Mk-2 Weapon Locating Radar (Swathi WLR) was designed to track enemy artillery, rockets or mortars approaching it. Earlier, Swathi was made jointly by DRDO, BEL and LRDE. Till now, 46 units of M-K1 have been made and deployed across the country. Swathi MK-1 has been deployed in different parts of the country since 2017.


Swathi Mk-2 Weapon Locating Radar (Swathi WLR) recognizes artillery from 2 to 30 km away. It tells its direction and speed. At the same time, it traces rockets or small missiles coming from 4 to 80 kilometres away and recognizes mortar shells from 2 to 20 kilometres away.

The most significant shortage of such radars was felt in 1999 during the Kargil war. At the same time, America’s AN / TPQ-36 fire finder radar was deployed near Pakistan. In the Kargil war, 80 per cent of Indian soldiers died in artillery fire. In 2002, India imported AN/TPQ-37 fire finder radar from the US. The delivery of 12 radars was completed in May 2007. Later, based on this, Indian scientists started making indigenous Swathi radars.

India has also sold the Swathi Mk-2 Weapon Locating Radar (Swathi WLR) to the government of Armenia. The Army there is also using it. Swathi informs about the arrival of 7 weapons simultaneously. Whether a weapon comes from a height or below, its range is 50 km.
