Pawn Shop

This system is apparently a component of the ABM-2/S-225 road-mobile anti-missile and anti-aircraft system developed by Chief Designer A. Raspletin of TSKB Almaz between 1965 and 1978. The S-225 included a phased array radar for target tracking and interceptor guidance, a station for transmission of commands, anti-missile interceptors with nuclear warheads, and the command homing posts 5YA26 (designed by the OKB Novator) and 5YA27 (designed by the Fakel).

The Pawn Shop system was apparently the command transmitters, with a separate transmitter dish for each interceptor.
