    800m wide and 150m tall



    this fucker at the time could, in real time, detect a missile launch from mainland USA along the entire eastern seaboard.

    there is a duplicate version in eastern russian for detecting alone the west coast of the USA. the frequency at which it operated for years interfered with tv and radio signals and when asked to modify the device to stop interfering, the russians basically told everyone to "get bent"

    The Duga at Chernobyl was the focus of the 2015 documentary film, The Russian Woodpecker, by Chad Gracia. The film includes interviews with the commander of the Duga, Vladimir Musiets, as well as the Vice-Commander, the Head of the Data Center, and others involved in building and operating the radar.
    The documentary, which won numerous awards, also includes drone video footage of the array and handheld video footage of the surroundings as well as a climb to the top by the cinematographer, Artem Ryzhykov.

    The film also proposes a conspiracy theory that the Chernobyl disaster was engineered to cover up failures in the radar's design.

    it was operating up until the late 80's. in all likelihood it was simply too expensive and obsolete with the fall of the soviet union happening
