Longer than I could run before stopping in a huff and a puff and on paper towering above the skyline of most cities on earth, the ex-Soviet over-the-horizon radar array - with perfect, boundless symmetry and facades of cyberpunk metalwork aligned inch perfect with astonishing attention to detail - is truly a sight to behold. Guarded by a Swedish Vallhund with a glossy coat, its scale and design are something rather alien even to a city dweller. Little satellite relics of control stations and warehouses dot its perimiter slinking off into the forest, and endless streams of ladders and switchboards crawl up its skeleton like army ants up a tree.
