DUGA-1 Radar is one of ending locations of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

On 13.11.2020 was released computer game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with DUGA-1 Radar Russian Woodpecker as one of the ending locations that in real is close to Chernobyl, 130 km from Kyiv, Ukraine.

Activision working team of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War choose this object for a reason to show the radar that on the plot of the game could transmit a signal to detonate atomic bombs in Europe but the real DUGA-1 Radar only was used for over-the-horizon tracking of nuclear missile launches from USA territory from 1976 to 1989.

Also DUGA-1 Radar shown in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is just the receiver part. The transmitter of DUGA-1 was installed about 50 km to the north-east.

By the way Radar DUGA-1 Russian Woodpecker is the key attraction of the video game S.T.A.L.K.E.R.2 Heart of Chernobyl which going to be ready and available on 28.04.2022!

About DUGA-1 Radar Russian Woodpecker

Chernobyl Helicopter Tour with Ukrainian BullyActually there was three DUGA radars of STEEL YARD (STEEL WORK) NATO Reporting Name and USSR Code "5Н32-West":

- Experimental DUGA Radar close to Mykolayiv, Ukraine (disassembled and scrapped)
- DUGA-1 Radar - near Chernobyl NPP and Chernobyl city, Ukraine (only one preserved in its original form)
- DUGA-2 Radar - close to Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Russia (disassembled and scrapped)

DUGA Radar calls "Russian Woodpecker" as it transmitted the repetitive tapping noise at 10 Hz repetition rate.

The need in DUGA Radar Russian Woodpecker service was decreased after 1980 with launches of stationary continental controllable satellites of Program "US-KS" or "OKO-S" (seven satellites were launched between 1975 and 1997 which currently retired).

In 2015 program "OKO-S" was replaced with new "EKS Kupol" and four satellites Kosmos type that identify ballistic missile launches and work as early warning radars (five more satellites in plans to be launched).

The great possibility to look the real DUGA-1 Radar in bird's eye view is Chernobyl helicopter tour for about 1 hour and 45 minutes starting from Kyiv, Ukraine.

Also there are three more preserved objects of Cold War heritage in Ukraine that complements the visit of DUGA-1 Radar:

- Museum of Strategic Missiles Forces
- State Aviation Museum
- Poltava Museum of Long-Range and Strategic Aviation
