P.Butowski - Russia retreats from Open Skies /Russian Review/
A Tu-214R Mullet reconnaissance aircraft, seen here before being painted, is used by Russian military intelligence and has powerful electronic sensors and a self-defence system.
If Russia leaves the Open Skies Treaty, the two special Tu-214ONs will likely be converted into other modifications. Highlighted here are the main sensor systems of the aircraft: 1) a set of photo and video cameras; 2) M402N Ronsar side-looking radar; 3) Raduga infrared line scanner
