    Russia's air force has taken delivery of the first three Ilyushin Il-22PP Porubschik aircraft, featuring up-to-date jamming equipment capable of disabling electronics systems on enemy planes.

    The equipment for conducting electronic warfare has been installed on an airplane made in the mid-1970s. Despite this, developers insist that the updated machine can withstand the most modern electronic systems mounted on advanced foreign aircraft.

    "The new equipment is capable of 'blinding' Airborne Early Warning and Control System [AWACS] aircraft," a source in the military-industrial complex told RBTH. "In addition to these, the Il-22PP Porubshchik effectively counteracts Patriot air defense systems."

    Sir just a question, why a whole plane for ECM when you have Pods available as well? Even US have EF-18 Growler which is a small plane not a big one.

    Growler is not the only electronic warfare plane US has. Their marines still employ four seater Prowler and US air force also uses C130 based Compass Call.

    You need larger planes with more electric power to jam entire battle ships pods can only jam missile not entire ships.
