HF-200 was a long range, medium power, fixed height finder operating in S band with a hydraulically nodding antenna. The parabolic reflector had dimensions of 10 × 2,5 m and was mounted on a 15 m high tower. The antenna steered between 20 and 30 cycles per minute. The radar could measure altitudes up to 17 000 m.

The HF-200 was commissioned in 1979, and retired in 1993.
