History[edit]

it sticks in my mind that this was discovered at anzio beachead with the SCR-584 radar set, this being the first time that radar was in close proximity, to incoming arty. Brian in denver (talk) 19:24, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Counter-battery radar systems[edit]


The request is that the “AN/TPQ-53 radar” be added to the list of Counter Battery Radars and linked to the Wikipedia article “AN/TPQ-53 Quick Reaction Capability Radar” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AN/TPQ-53_Quick_Reaction_Capability_Radar ).

A Counter Battery Radar, as defined by this article, is “a mobile radar system that detects artillery projectiles fired by one or more guns, howitzers, mortars or rocket launchers and, from their trajectories, locates the position on the ground of the weapon that fired”. The Q-53 is identified as a counter battery radar on the Wikipedia page: AN/TPQ-53 Quick Reaction Capability Radar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AN/TPQ-53_Quick_Reaction_Capability_Radar)Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). .
