OVERVIEW: The P-14 radar (NATO name: TALL KING) is a long-range 2-D early warning radar operating in the "A" Band.
DETAILS: Also known as the 5N84A. Weapon systems associated with the P-14 include the SA-5 GAMMON
Frequency: 150-180 MHz ("A" Band) Power output: 800 W (average) 700-900 kW (peak) PRF: 100-200 Hz Range Resolution: 1200 m On/Off time: unknown Detection Ranges Fighter size aircraft 500 m altitude: unknown 10000m alt.: 300+ km
NOTES: The P-14 entered service in the 1950's. Users include the Soviet Union, Hungary, Peru, Syria, Poland, Iraq and Yugoslavia. VHF radars such as the P-14 remain important, as they can be better at detecting stealth aircraft than more recent, higher frequency radars.
