The radar system of Russia’s new Tupolev Tu-214R reconnaissance aircraft is capable of seeing facilities hidden or camouflaged below the snow, the tree-tops and even under the ground, a representative for the United Instrument-Making Corporation said on Monday.

The radar manufacturer is part of Rostec hi-tech state corporation.

“The multi-frequency radar developed and produced by our Vega Group helps receive information maximally promptly, with more qualitative image details. The data coming onboard the aircraft give detailed radar images of facilities hidden by fog, smoke, snow, soil and plants,” the representative said.

Amid conditions of dry sandy soils, the system is capable of receiving the images of facilities located at a depth of several dozen meters actually irrespective of the aircraft’s altitude, the representative said.

Tupolev-204 is made by Aviastar SP, Ulyanovsk, Ulyanovsk Oblast.
Tupolev-214 is made by Kazan Aircraft Production Association, Kazan, Tatarstan.

Both are same planes, but each factory has some freedom in making minor modifications. Tupolev-204 and Tupolev-214 and slightly different, and hence, different designations. Tupolev-214 is slightly heavier with more structural reinforcements.

It's not true. Several Tu-214ON serve in USA and Russia (for OS flights in Europe) to control nuclear bases and OS declared objects.
Planes types is not the issue but declared flight routes, observation objects and equipment should be allowed by the treaty.
So, Tu-214ON complies all.
