CWS-3

CWS-3 was operating in X-Band combined naval air- and surfacesearch radar. Two of these radars were deployed on each of the Danish “Peder Skram” class frigates in the early 1970s. They remained operational until the 1990s. Since only two of these frigates were built, probably only four such radars were built.
