Abandoned Duga-3 over-the-horizon radar system

This gigantic antenna system called Duga-3 is located near Prypiat in the Chernobyl area.

It was built in the 70's as an early missile detection system (over-the-horizon radar system). It was also called the Steel Yard hence its distinctive appearance. The antenna was deactivated in 1989.
