Geus-2 (Cyrillic: «Гюйс-2», from Dutch Geus, “Jack” – a nickname for the bow flag of a ship) was operating in VHF-Band shipborne radar on cruisers. It was designed to detect surface and air targets and to provide target acquisition information to fire control systems. The antenna was mounted near the top of the mast. The display consisted of a stationary and a remote plan position indicator (PPI). There was the possibility of sector search and a target tracking with determination of distance, course angle and bearing.
The first operational equipment was deployed in September 1948 on the Black Sea Fleet cruiser “Molotov”.
