Weapon 2100 of the year?

The discussion of sensational still does not stop. news about the plans of the Russian Ministry of Defense. The fact is that not so long ago at a meeting of the Government, Minister of Defense A. Serdyukov mentioned the creation of a certain program providing for the development weapons on "new physical principles." There were no official detailed comments, but the news became popular and discussed. Understandably, any new technology always attracts attention, and besides, the very “new physical principles” by the efforts of some unscrupulous citizens have become a term for designating a deliberately disastrous pseudo-scientific projecting. Nevertheless, not a single army in the world would have refused a fundamentally new weapon systems, surpassing or supplementing the existing ones. Therefore, in many countries, work has already been going on for a long time in such areas that only a few years ago were considered the lot of science fiction.


Serdyukov spoke about the creation of a whole series of fundamentally new weapons: "radiation, geophysical, wave, genetic, psychophysical, and so on." It all looks pretty fantastic. However, often the fiction of today is commonplace tomorrow. Let us try to consider and analyze the principles, prospects and problems of the above-mentioned weapons of destruction from a far perspective.

Beam weapon

This category includes a fairly wide range of means of destruction. In particular, the mirrors of Archimedes, with which, according to legend, he repulsed the Roman attack, can be recognized as beam weapons. fleet. As more modern representatives of this class, we can recall lasers and directional microwave emitters. Both of these technologies are widely used in industry and everyday life, but things have not yet reached full-fledged combat use. The number of experimental combat laser systems can be counted on the fingers (Soviet Sanguin, Compression, A-60 aircraft and American systems of the YAL type), and even less microwave ones. However, both directions are not actively used as the main damaging means. So, lasers are used to direct guided ammunition, and microwave radiation is used in detection systems. At the same time, all this is an "auxiliary tool."

However, lasers and microwave emitters can be used as a striking tool. Their main advantage lies in the extreme simplicity of targeting: the radiation does not deflect like a bullet and can “beat” to a greater distance. Thanks to this radiation weapon, slightly simpler guidance systems are required, and in addition, it is possible to transfer more energy to targets than in the case of using traditional kinetic ammunition. But behind every plus there is a minus. The main problem of all emitters that could be put into service, is nutrition. A light or microwave radiator consumes so much energy that it is necessary to allocate special generators for it. It is unlikely that it will please potential users. In addition, from any radiation you can hide. The well-known Faraday cage protects against radio waves, and protection systems against lasers have long been known - smoke screens and powerful searchlights of the corresponding radiation range. It turns out that the high costs of creating combat emitters can be “compensated” by the enemy by much cheaper methods. Therefore, there is nothing to do on the battlefield so far, as well as in the estimates for the purchase of weapons. But in the study of this area is worth investing, because the study of light or microwave radiation will have non-military "dividends".

Geophysical weapons

Another vundervaffe modernity. From time to time there are messages about its development and even application. But in actual fact they all turn out to be rumors. Moreover, today there is no reliable information regarding at least research in this area. On the one hand, this may be secrecy, and on the other, a banal lack of interest in a less promising direction. However, the dictionary definition for geophysical weapons has long existed. These are the means by which a person can affect inanimate nature in such a way that natural disasters begin on the attacked territory. From here, one can derive some sort of classification and divide geophysical weapons into lithospheric, hydrospheric, atmospheric, and climatic.

There is no evidence of the existence of systems capable of influencing the geophysical state of the planet and causing catastrophes, which, nevertheless, does not prevent some citizens from asserting the opposite. So, for example, it is often said that the American ionospheric research station HAARP (located in Alaska) is in fact a means of influencing the atmosphere and natural phenomena. In this conspiracy theory, there are also allegations that the tsunami in the Indian Ocean 2004 of the year or the anomalous heat wave in Russia of the 2010 was caused by the HAARP complex. There is no convincing evidence or refutation of this. Interestingly, rumors about the use of HAARP as a geophysical weapon are most common in the post-Soviet space. In turn, in the United States and Canada similar things tell about the Russian complex "Sura", located in the Voronezh region.

Of course, theoretically a person can arbitrarily influence the course of some processes in the atmosphere or hydrosphere. In practice, this will require enormous energies, which humanity does not yet have. Thus, during the work of the HAARP and “Sura” complexes, the northern lights can form in the sky. However, after the cessation of radiation, it quickly disappears. For long-term preservation of the effect, as well as for the transfer of the required amount of energy through the atmosphere, we need more powerful transmitters and electricity generators. The situation is similar with other subspecies of geophysical weapons.

There is, however, an alternative way to create geophysical (lithospheric or hydrospheric) weapons. It looks simple: a nuclear or thermonuclear charge of the appropriate power is installed at the desired point of the ocean floor or the crust of the Earth. The installation point must be found in such a way that the detonation of the ammunition will lead to the appearance of a powerful tsunami or earthquake. Such projects have long been haunting the minds of scientists, military and politicians. Still, one click on the button and the enemy has far more important problems than the war with your country. And the earthquake in the background of your confrontation will look like just an accident. Hotheads stops the practical realization of the idea. Finding points for laying nuclear charges is not a quick and difficult task, moreover, it is still not possible to accurately calculate the consequences and the effect of the detonation may not meet the expectations and will not recoup the costs of the project. Simply sprinkling enemy territory with atomic bombs will be much easier and cheaper.

Gene weapon

This category of “weapons of the future” implies an attack not of the enemy itself, but of its genome. Most often, it is proposed to damage the adversary's gene code with the help of viruses or bacteria specially bred in the laboratory, which to some extent unites the biological weapon with the biological one. The effect of a gene weapon is that specially created sequences of nucleotides are introduced into the genome of the soldiers or commanders of the enemy, leading to improper functioning of the organism. In particular, in a similar way, in theory, it is possible to cause a serious violation of human health or even a complete disabling of it.

Despite its apparent effectiveness, genetic weapons are hardly applicable against armies in real conditions. The main snag lies in exactly how the human body "works" with gene information. For example, the immune system monitors the behavior of cells and tries to destroy those whose genetic information is damaged. However, with a large number of damaged cells, the body will no longer cope with their destruction, as is the case with cancer. Another problem with a gene weapon is its speed. Even with the successful introduction into the human genome of artificially created information, it may not have an impact on his body and "emerge" only in future generations. For military use, such tools are not very suitable, although they may be useful for long-term “clearance” of territories. A special case of this version of the gene weapon can be considered the so-called. ethnic gene weapon. It is no secret that representatives of different nationalities have differences in hereditary information, and this, with a certain approach, can allow the creation of pathogens that affect only carriers of certain elements of the genome. But such a version of the gene weapon is not fast-acting, and, in addition, due to agents that carry the information being introduced (viruses or bacteria), it can be recognized as a type of biological weapon that has long been banned.

We often hear that the gene modification of organisms used in the food industry was also created as a gene weapon. However, this version is quite easily refuted by elementary knowledge from the field of biology. For example, for human digestion, it does not make any difference what kind of nucleotide sequence is hidden in the nuclei of the cells of the plant eaten. Gastric juice will break all food substances into a safe (assuming proper cooking) chemical “soup”. Also, do not forget the fact that special methods are used for introducing altered DNA into the cell, which cannot be reproduced in the conditions of an ordinary kitchen, and even more so in the stomach and intestines. Thus, the only way to use GMO in food, capable of claiming the proud title of a weapon, is to cultivate plant varieties that produce toxins dangerous for humans. Only such plants are subject to the Chemical and Toxin Weapons Convention. And it is unlikely that any country will allow a clearly dangerous product to its food market - at the moment food with the use of GMOs is paid so much attention that it will be very, very difficult, if not impossible, to introduce something dangerous.

Psychophysical weapon

The term “psychotropic weapon” is more commonly used to refer to this category, but in general both names are equally correct. The essence of such systems is simple: some apparatus, through some kind of influence on the human brain, causes specially provoked reactions. This may be a pleasure or euphoria, and maybe panic. Most often, psychophysical weapons appear in conspiracy theories and science fiction. With regard to the real world, then it studies in this direction are conducted, although without much success. Perhaps the reason for this lies in the need for contactless human exposure. In favor of this version is the fact that in the field of psychotropic substances there are far greater achievements than in the field of apparatuses for influencing the psyche.

It is argued that psychotronic systems can destabilize the behavior of the enemy and even control it. However, the notorious Helmholtz resonator still continues to remain a mockery of conspiracy therapists. It should be noted, now all the same there are systems that can be called a psychophysical weapon with a big stretch. The fact is that the installation of LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) is still more physical than a psycho-weapon. The essence of its action is to emit a narrow sound of high volume. A person who has come under the direct influence of LRAD begins to experience painful sensations from loudness (physical impact), while those outside the directed beam are forced to endure a very unpleasant squeak (psychological impact). It is noteworthy that soon after the first reports of LRAD, there were no countermeasures against this installation. Simple protective earpieces significantly reduce the noise level, and a sufficiently sized metal sheet can reflect sound waves and direct them to the installation operator.

An alternative to LRAD may be infrasound emitters. With the correct frequency of the signal, they can cause the enemy pain throughout the body or even panic fear. Similar systems have also been developed in various countries, but nothing is known about the practical application, or at least about the prototypes of ready-made military devices. Perhaps potential customers preferred simpler and more familiar solutions to psycho-physiological weapons.

Alternative kinetic weapons

Currently, the main means of throwing ammunition designed to hit a target with the help of its energy, are various gunpowder. They have fundamental flaws: limited calorific value and energy release, as well as demands on a relatively strong barrel that will withstand the explosive release of gunpowder energy. Problems with the barrel for more than a decade have been solved by using recoilless guns, but to preserve the kinetic characteristics of the missile ammunition, this requires a significant increase in the powder charge. It remains only to strengthen the trunks of weapons and guns. As a solution to the problem of increasing the energy of a propellant charge, so-called pneumoelectric ammunition. In them, instead of gunpowder, a specially selected metal, ignited by an electric igniter, burns. Burning heats the inert gas (also located inside the liner), and he, expanding, pushes a bullet or projectile. Theoretically, this type of ammunition can significantly improve the characteristics of firearms. But it has such poor practical prospects that, to date, pneumoelectric cartridges do not exist even in the form of laboratory samples.

But other alternative ways to disperse a bullet / projectile not only exist, but also actively shoot. Since the mid-nineties in the United States are working on rail guns (also used the term "railgun"). They do not need a barrel or gunpowder. The principle of operation of such a weapon is simple: a missile metal object is placed on two rails. They are supplied with electricity, under the influence of the Lorentz force that has arisen, the projectile accelerates along the rails and flies in the direction of the target. This design allows you to achieve much higher flight speeds and ranges than gunpowder. But still, it is not a panacea - for the operation of a rail gun requires a large amount of electricity, which makes it not quite a good option for replacing firearms. However, by the end of this decade, the Pentagon plans to conduct the first test firing of a railgun mounted on a ship. As they say, wait and see.

An alternative to rail guns is the Gauss gun. It also works on electricity and has quite interesting indicators. The principle of its operation differs from the railgun: the acceleration of the projectile occurs by alternately turning on several solenoids located around the barrel. Under the action of their magnetic field, the projectile accelerates and flies away into the target. Gauss cannons are also somewhat attractive to the military, but they have one serious drawback. At the moment, it was not possible to create a sample of such an installation, the efficiency of which would exceed 8-10%. This means that less than a tenth of the energy of the battery or generator is transmitted to the projectile. To call the device with such characteristics energy-efficient just does not turn the language.

Information weapon

Perhaps the simplest and most effective “weapon of the future” today. Information weapons can be divided into several categories depending on the nature of its use. Thus, computer weapons, namely, special software (software), is intended to disrupt the work of the enemy’s computing systems, which in modern conditions will undoubtedly be an effective diversion. These can be specially written viruses that are introduced through “holes” in the software used or so-called. bookmarks. In the latter case, the malware is initially in the target and just waiting in the wings when he is told to start work. Obviously, the introduction of malware into the enemy’s systems is not an easy task, but it’s worth it. For example, disabling or disrupting the operation of communication systems and information processing of air defense troops can make a country defenseless in the literal sense of the word. There have not yet been such major sabotage attacks as military systems, but a few years ago Iranian targets were subjected to cyber attacks. Then the virus Stuxnet drank a lot of blood to the system administrators of Iran. There is information that it was “Staxnet” that led to delays in the technological process of uranium enrichment.

From the concept of cybernetic attack follow the requirements for the defense in the computer sphere. The most common at first glance anti-virus program in this case becomes the most real means of civil defense. Of course, more serious software is needed to protect strategic objects. In addition, to reduce the likelihood of attacks requires the use of special assemblies of operating systems. The fact is that a virus written to be implemented in one version of the operating system may not work at all or malfunction in another. If for extorting money with the help of Internet terrorists blocking programs, this is not a serious problem (they take what is called quantity), then specialized malicious programs are required for precise attacks of a specific computer center.

However, information weapons can be used not only against enemy computers. As such, you can recognize the good old propaganda. It is already clear that this means of instilling the necessary thoughts is not a bit outdated and even gains more and more weight. It is believed that propaganda was mainly supported by widespread access to the Internet.

Question of choice

We do not know what types of “alternative weapons” will be developed by Russian science in the future. As you can see, all of the above systems and methods have both pros and cons. Some types of alternative weapons are fundamentally possible in modern conditions, and some in the distant future will be pure fantasy. Despite the fact that the term “new physical principles” has long become a kind of scientific joke, one should not forget about truly new technologies. However, there is one serious problem in the development of revolutionary new ideas: as soon as any direction becomes quite widely known (for example, nanotechnology in recent years), there are immediately a lot of suspicious characters who are not promised to get a star from the sky, just give them of money. So it was before, it is so now, and so it is likely to be in the future. Therefore, when creating and developing new technologies, special attention should be paid to the distribution of funds for research, so that they do not fall into pseudoscientific hands. And do not be kept on sky-high promises. In this case, our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be able to see fully autonomous Tanks with artificial intelligence and a rail gun, soldiers in exoskeletons and with Gauss guns, as well as planes invisible in all radiation spectra.

    Fiction is good, of course.
    But in moderation.
    For a long time, the main weapon will remain - the "man with a gun."
    Because without retention and control of the territory, the rest of the actions are gang raids.
    Here, however, we must pay tribute to the "man with a pen." Since, it is with them, with writers, that everything begins.
    And the mind - and madness.
    It turns out - the main - two. As it was - "Feather and Sword".

    Add more. For some reason, it turned out that the “field" weapon, the weapon based on the effects of a physical field, turned out to be missed. What is commonly called teleportation, telekinesis, levitation ....
    Or in terms of fantasy - martial magic.

      Greetings, Igor. In general, you are right, I just want to note that the information about the new weapon has passed, as they say, from above. Logically, such statements are not born from scratch (none of the politicians will want to make themselves a visionary or a fool). Most likely, there are already some specific developments.

          I have long said that developments in the creation of such types of weapons were still in the USSR. Just for the time being - they are deeply classified, or exist in 1-2 copies. Enough Shock Force to see all the parts. A series - geophysical weapons - show - a car drives out on the basis of Kamaz - it’s some kind of box and they say that this unit is capable of causing earthquakes of any magnitude within a radius of 500 km !!! Moreover, I am sure that some of these weapons have already been used. America openly accused Russia of their hurricane Katrina. Russia America - in the drought of 2011. And the earthquake in Georgia - 6 points - 2 days after the end of the war 08.08.08. And Yapov shook - only the Kuril Islands began to pound!
          We just don’t know much. Tesla back in what year over which experiments he conducted - how many years have passed - they invented such a thing there - it’s scary to imagine.
          In general, by 2100, there will be no more wars! For development will reach such a level - that in 5 minutes any superpower will be able to destroy not only the aggressor, but the entire Planet. In addition, there will be no oil. There will be fusion power plants. Nana technology around. There will be saucers flying - only already openly, and not right now - around the world they see - only nobody (except presidents and military men) knows what it is. Settlement and development of other planets will begin.
          I sincerely hope that by that time - from America-Sosia - all that remains is to remember it! am
          It’s a pity - we will not live to see those bright times !!! crying If only urgently everyone quit drinking, smoking, swearing, eating Toko vegetables and running in the morning? laughing

      Creating a railgun is now not a problem at all.
      And so far only a nuclear reactor can be used as an energy source.
      If they want, then our designers will be able to put in a tank and a small nuclear reactor. This will seriously weigh the tank, but this problem will be even easier to solve than the installation of the reactor itself.

          To do this, you need the 19th century, and the woodcutter Gram. The very idea of ​​how the "irreversible machine" is now considered heresy, and pseudoscientific speculations. And after that they still whine that basic science is underfunded. Drive them all in the neck so that progress would not slow down.

      Nah, No matter how many wars there were, no matter what weapon they fought, always a point in the battlefield will be put by a man with a rifle in his hands (well, or with a gun ...)

        Yeah, especially in ancient Rome, where a man with a rifle could solve any conflict at all. (just kidding, I understand that we are talking about more modern conflicts).
        Well, but seriously (how much this applies to fantasy) to think about what will happen in 2100, then, in my opinion, in the expression "man with a gun" just the same person gets under more confusion. Over the past decade, you can see just an incredible take-off in the development of UAVs, which from rarely used scouts have become full-fledged routine use (which is important) of hit machines. Yes, I know that strike UAVs were developed and even adopted by the USSR in the 70s, but then they were a kind of exotic and were never used anywhere - which was similar to the radio-controlled telecrafts of the 30s.
        Look at how many drones (both in terms of number and variety of types) were built and put into service over the past ten years and compare with the number of conventional military aircraft (again, by the number of vehicles themselves and by variety) built during the same time. The fact that by 2100 (and most likely, much earlier) unmanned fighters will appear personally I have no doubt - the machines will be able to withstand 20-30-fold overloads (and if necessary more) and do not have to spend several years and a lot of money on their training. The war requires maximum efficiency and highly skilled machines simply do not leave any chance for a person here (I mean about a hundred years perspective). Of course, "giving" an expensive aircraft to computer control may seem almost insane, but even now, piloting modern cars is a symbiosis of a computer and a person.
        On land and at sea, although slower, most likely robots will also gradually occupy the military "niches" of people. Of course, there will be no cinema terminators, but unmanned tanks (imagine what opportunities are opening up in the design due to a decrease in the required space). There may also be walking, though rather 4-legged platforms, such as the existing Big Dog robot, which is already undergoing tests.
        I consider such a development to be inevitable. Take the air defense systems - which are then largely simply forced to act automatically, since the human reaction no longer meets the complexity of the tasks.

          Guys ...
          "Man with a Gun" is a Soviet-era film, if anyone does not know. The film is about the Red Army, about its formation.
          I meant, by and large - just an armed man. Human warrior.
          What wonderful unmanned and automated systems do not take - everywhere the BEGINNING is man.
          Only a person who is able to think, think contrary to established patterns is capable of fighting and to set a task mechanics.
          I do not think so.
          I am sure about that.
          therefore, always and everywhere - a man will fight.

          As a supplement.
          The beautiful epic cycle of the cosmoopera is Fred Saberhagen's Berserker. Well, cars are terrible, they are capable of fighting on chronolines.
          The ordinary bioplasma vessel — man — wins as a result.
          Yes, whatever fantasy you take .... iron is iron.

          Also ... if nature has endowed us with the ability to harm HER ... really, it will allow those who are subordinate to it - harm us.
          It does not happen.

            War (I mean the process itself, and not its cause and effect), if you remove all the idiologization and poetic adornments, is logistics. It takes several grams of lead to move from the barrel of your weapon to the body of the enemy, you need several kilograms of explosives to appear in a certain metsa (transport hub, for example) and detonate. In the future, machines are significantly effective in the implementation of such logistics tasks. People, of course, will not go anywhere - guerrilla groups will remain, especially in poor countries, in high-tech (among which, I hope, we will remain in 2100) countries, machines will still dominate the front lines. I draw such a conclusion on the basis of current trends in the automation of everything and everything that takes place in military affairs. A simple example - an automatic loader in a tank - is replacing a person with a robot. Here, of course, reading the mechanics, but now the technique is capable of much more.

              Here was such a task, at one time, for programmers - to write a program that would print itself ..
              I don’t know - they decided it, if not. I'm not a programmer. It seems there were private decisions.

              And here it’s interesting for me - the UAV (in the assault version) decided to fly on its own. Well, go ahead. And on the basis of what will he decide on the use of weapons? ... and, suddenly, there haven’t been any reasonable people on Earth for three hundred years?
              Is he flying? What for????

      Of course, I understand their desire to be better than others, but what will the use of at least geophysical weapons turn into, probably the next global catastrophe when millions of civilians die, because it is not aimed at some point like a bullet or a bomb, but for whole countries we need it? I personally want to live in peace, unless it is a deterrent

        Yes, yes, the power was doubled twice, and so it was enough laughing
        We decided not to make the case out of non-radioactive U238, which reacts under these conditions.
        That would be a firework !!!!!!!!!!!!!
        (USA, by that time the thermonuclear detonated only in the barn lol )


        But now in Lebanon they find zones of abnormal radioactivity inside large funnels.
        They talked about ultra-small thermonuclear munitions winked


        The original version of the bomb was rejected due to the extremely high level of radioactive contamination that it was supposed to cause [7] - it was decided not to use the “Jekyll-Hyde reaction” in the third stage of the bomb and replace the uranium components with their lead equivalent. This reduced the estimated total explosion power by almost half (to 51,5 megatons).

      The results of the reforms we will see no earlier than 15-17 years.
      I will explain
      1 New brigade staffs will be formed (light / medium / heavy)
      2 Troops will be saturated by 40-60% with new weapons
      3 Those officers who studied new equipment and tactics will be released and enter into force.
      4 And most importantly, Local conflict.

            Such a replenishment of new officers that it just becomes terribly ...
            Weapons purchases are mainly about plans for what they will buy, and about a few units. received in part ...
            What are these 40 ships? With boats and semi-pleasure yachts bearing the big name of coast guard boats together? There was already a debate about this - the figure seems to be solid, but in real life only two or three warships came out ...
            Shipbuilders seem to be pleased that they began to make more normal warships, but when will they go into operation? And how much will they change the situation if you spread them on 4 fleets?

          As you considered a raid.


          And you about this notorious new order!

          Let me remember. It was long ago:

          1. For fighters and FBA -50 hours.
          2. Long and strategist -60 hours
          3. BTA-75 hours
          4. Helicopter-50 hours

          At the end of the year, an order was issued to enroll in length of service in preferential terms for two years.

          When participating in a database, it does not depend on the number of sorties and the number of flight hours — two years a year, and the time from entering the Parts List
          participating in the database (the same order but already MO) before the expiration of the participation in the database for three days for the flight personnel and two days for technical and ground personnel.

          With the class, the same one flight to the database in any conditions at least during the day, at least at night - offset for confirmation.

          In the year of retraining for a new type-year for two automatically, but the class is not!

          Therefore, from the beginning of the school year there has always been an acute problem of "grabbing" their 4th landing with M / M weather at night (what if you can’t expect a war this year?) And you can safely "smoke" all year!

          It’s easier for navigators to count “visits”, so when completing the 3rd and 1st laps from one refueling or flying to the RP and flying around the RTS, the navigators easily managed to confirm their class, to our envy, because I only got 2- e landing!

          Well, the “edge” M / M always pulled up whoever needed it, at the beginning of the plan, they started everyone with the 2nd class, and then a “sharp decrease in the M / M weather according to meteo data” and then we all, with our 1st class nightly 150 / 1,5-200/2 or 100/1,0 in the AZP immediately "gained"!

          So, if in your own words without treasury!

          And now, in my opinion with the rules of the raid very cool "got excited"!

          Well, imagine 10 Tu-160s flying, 30 crews in a regiment and how much it needs to fly. so that everyone has their own 130 hours ??? Complete nonsense!

          So also scribbled by type ???
          And if it will still be possible for the BTA, but not the An-12 and 22 all the more, then ON STRATEG 95-M OR 142 where these 150 hours will be taken ??

          I’m silent about whistles and FBA helicopters, it’s simply unreal!

          But the "savings" are obvious - I did not confirm the year for two 100% of the allowance for the monetary maintenance for special conditions, you immediately lose!

          So here, and here they rejoiced how great it was that everything was raised, of course it’s great who would argue, but if ".... they gave it somewhere, then they’ll necessarily take it in another place, because free cheese is only in a mousetrap "!!!

            How sad to read you ...
            Although far from flight specifics ... I still understood what I was talking about.
            What stupid inventions .... and how they can be easily treated .. if desired by the commanders.
            In the Navy, in my time .. the same garbage .. was.
            Why was all this invented, who defended this dissertation?

            So it is thought - from poverty, or what? From unwillingness to answer - for combat training? Fear of standing?

            It seems to me that with the introduction of this professional army, "rubbing points" will go professionally. But I would not want to.
            Atlon was right in his appeal - the professional army must fight.
            And then it will turn on .... - natural selection. The engine of progress.

              Well, it’s sad that this is what it is and nowhere “this” cannot be hidden by any plans for Star Wars!

              Ever since the time of Suvorov, commanders with soldiers were sitting at their quarters and ate porridge from one pot, and now ???

              Even the cottages and then the command of the ZVO, and to ordinary officers, again, at best, a dormitory, or go take off?

              Only if earlier everything was extremely simple and the “allowances” went for real affairs, now everything is left to the commanders.
              Well, about the 400th order, I am generally silent, because. no normal words.

              Look and read what a commander can do now (paragraph 1 and 2, thank God without him, but the same is true) !:

              additional payments
              1. For the length of service (monthly)
              From 2 to 5 years - 10%, from 5 to 10 years - 15%, from 10 to 15 years - 20%, from 15 to 20 years - 25%, from 20 to 25 years - 30%, 25 years and more - 40% cash
              2. For classroom qualifications (monthly)
              3rd grade - 5%, 2nd grade - 10%, 1st grade - 20%, master - 30% for military positions
              3. For work with information constituting a state secret (monthly)
              In the amount of up to 65% of the salary for military posts.
              4. For special conditions of military service (monthly)
              In the amount of up to 100% of the salary for military posts
              5. For the performance of tasks directly related to the risk to life and health in peacetime (monthly)

              Up to three salaries per annum

    The word is not a sparrow. It is impossible to disclose the fullness of secret developments in this area. The theft of even ideas - can greatly harm the developers of new types of weapons, so open babble from the rostrum is just the sound of the fact that we, too, are not standing still.

    Inclined to agree with Brother Sarych:
    It was time to present the real results of the reform - and so they began to hang up another carrot, and in the very distant future!

    More specifically, then:

    1) the development of truly "new physical principles" requires the development of fundamental science. What is its current level and what are the financial investments in basic research, I think, does not require explanation. All that can really be done now is to overturn the old Soviet backlogs.

    2) the development of new technologies based on already known principles. This is applied research, which also requires capital investment.

    Is anyone aware that capital investments are being made in fundamental and applied science? Share the news.

    And so, just words, "projections" in the future, designed to divert attention from today. Remember how Ostap Bender pumped out money from Vasyukovsky chess players by hanging noodles on their ears about the world’s chess capital New Vasyuki? Looks very much like that.

      “Uncertain remain, in particular, the most serious errors associated with the interpretation of the laws of motion of material objects with high speeds. This area of ​​physics in recent decades has become one of the most important in physical science and has achieved significant success. However, the successful development of the theory of motion with high speeds is hindered by the Einsteinian interpretation of the laws of fast movements, widespread among physicists, and the Einsteinian understanding of the essence of physical theory. The interests of physical science urgently require deep criticism and a decisive exposure of the whole system of theoretical views of Einstein and his followers of Einsteinians in the field of physics, and their individual philosophical statements are not easy. The idealistic views of Einstein and Einsteinians lead physical theory into a hopeless impasse. Exposing reactionary Einsteinism in the field of physical science is one of the most urgent tasks of Soviet physicists and philosophers ”

    What is the "new physical principles" of physics, it is one for us and for everyone else there is the so-called "standard model" on the basis of which our understanding of the surrounding reality is built, there are fundamental laws such as the finiteness of the propagation velocity of electromagnetic radiation or the law of conservation of energy to bypass which are unlikely to succeed, another thing is not a complete understanding of how all this works and here I have a concrete example, in my opinion our designers still do not fully understand what principles the American stealth technology is based on

    The Stealth technology was justified in the simple CANDIDATE work of a Russian scientist. But, as always, we did not pay attention to it. It is interesting how many scientists pumped the West out of Russia during the "reforms?" How many scientists were in military universities before and after the " optimization. "Scientific schools created for decades have been destroyed. Therefore, such statements as well as statements about the" successes "of military reform from the realm of science fiction.

      The Stealth technology was justified in the simple CANDIDATE work of a Russian scientist


      Absolutely, the creator of the famous “invisible” F-117A aircraft, known as “Stealth” Bey Rich himself confirms that he got the idea of ​​creating “Stealth” from a magazine article by a Soviet scientist, which, apparently, was blotted out by the Soviet military.
      In 1966, the Soviet physicist P. Ufimtsev published materials of his scientific work on the reflection of electromagnetic waves from the edges of various surfaces.
      An article came up with a radar specialist who worked in Burbank (California) at the Lockheed plant. He immediately appreciated its significance and brought it to Rich.
      "...." The Stealth technology just fell into my hands. I was damn lucky .... ", admitted Rich.

      But the stealth technology, as it turned out, was developed not by the Americans, but by the Germans back in World War II.
      The first turbojet aircraft, rightfully ranked among the most non-standard combat projects carried out during the Second World War.
      The plane, with which the Nazis were going to change the course of the war, began to be created in Germany in 1943, when the advantage in the air of Soviet and Allied fighters became obvious.
      Then Hitler's order appeared to build a fundamentally new bomber - fast and invisible to radar.

      The machine was given the designation “Go-229” (after the designers - the Horten brothers), and in early summer 1944 a contract was signed for seven prototypes and 20 pre-production aircraft.
      When tests of the aircraft began in January 1945, the handling met the most optimistic expectations.
      In March, the nose wheel began to be cleaned in flight, which allowed to increase speed to 795 km / h.
      Behind the futuristic look of the Go-229 fighter-bomber is a powerful Junkers Jumo-004B turbojet engine, as well as four 30-mm guns.
      The aircraft is capable of carrying 2 tons of warheads.
      It turned out that the plane “invisible” to the radar was a mixture of charcoal dust, which covered the plane. She did not reflect, but absorbed electromagnetic radiation.
      Do not end the war in May 1945, who knows how much grief this plane could have caused.
      After the division of Germany between the USSR and the USA, secret documents regarding the development of the Go-229 fell into the hands of the Americans, who continued to develop the invisible aircraft.

    An alternative to rail guns is the Gauss gun. It also works on electricity and has quite interesting indicators. The principle of its operation differs from the railgun: acceleration of the projectile occurs by alternately turning on several solenoids located around the trunk.


    New to me too! On the Internet, a lot of schemes for building. lol

    A Gaussian gun consists of a solenoid, inside of which is a barrel (usually a dielectric). A projectile (made of a ferromagnet) is inserted into one of the ends of the barrel. When an electric current flows in the solenoid, a magnetic field appears, which accelerates the projectile, "pulling" it into the solenoid. In this case, the projectile receives at the ends of the pole symmetrically to the poles of the coil, because of which, after the passage of the center of the solenoid, the projectile is attracted in the opposite direction, i.e. slows down. But if at the moment the projectile passes through the middle of the solenoid, the current in it is turned off, the magnetic field will disappear and the projectile will fly out from the other end of the barrel. But when the power source is turned off, a self-induction current is generated in the coil, which has a reverse current direction, and therefore changes the polarity of the coil. And this means that when the power source is suddenly turned off, the projectile that has flown through the center of the coil will repel and gain further acceleration. Otherwise, if the shell has not reached the center, it will slow down.

    At the end of the Cold War, the Yankees scared the leadership of the Union with a “paper goat” of “Star Wars,” and they led themselves, believed, and sank millions into dead ends ...
    So there is any evidence from the Soviet era that anyone can at least prove that they are “dead end” or “promising” ... But even here a serious approach is needed, because there were enough and all kinds of “false scientists” who write anything and have enough under any authority and all the times.
    So I think that this is either our “counter-battery fight” on the “scarecrows” launched against the United States, or is there really something positive behind it, or another powerful “cut” is coming ... request

    I want to add a little, the laser beam is invisible, and will go on burning everything in its path.
    Geophysical weapons are possible and there are, of course I don’t really believe in transmissions, but in the "military secret" they said that there is such a bomb, it is dropped and an unknown chemical reaction can cause a lot of rain to form floods.
    And about the information weapon, or rather harmful programs, at the moment, and for the future, it will most of all harm the creators in the Pentagon.

      The laser beam will reach exactly the point where its energy is absorbed. Until the first, as a rule. The beam is visible in a gaseous medium, more precisely, it is invisible only in a vacuum, where it has nothing to show disperse effects (scattering) on.
      There are no high-energy lasers with a continuous stream of radiation.
      And what you wrote is from S. Snegov ... a biological woman, the so-called. Good horror story.
      An unknown chemical reaction from which it rains, silver azide was initially atomized. Then it turned out that it was enough to spray the cement - and the moisture falling in the form of rain begins to condense on the grains of cement dust. And the whole trick. Extremely cheap and efficient (well, flights, of course, require money).

    This is unlikely - now, from 2018 it is gradually becoming clear that TMV will not be able to destroy the emerging distributed high-tech design and production tools, such as 3D printing and small-scale organic and inorganic synthesis, and, most likely, the war of the future after TMV will be a war of simple self-propelled microrobots, drones and dodgy mines; their shelters, mini-dots and underground tunnels will be printed with concrete by other minimachines: most of all it will be like the old film "Screamers".
