News of the Peresvet project

54
In early March, as part of the annual address to the Federal Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time spoke about several promising models of weapons and military equipment, including the latest laser complex. Initially, very little was known about this system, which later received the name Peresvet. However, over time, the situation began to improve. Officials began to mention certain technical features of the complex, as well as to clarify plans for the near future.


Unfortunately, only the most general phrases were heard in the President’s Address. V. Putin stated that significant results were obtained in the field of laser weapons. At the same time, this is not about testing or the start of production - combat complexes of a new type entered the troops last year. The President noted that one should not go into details yet, but pointed out the potential of a fundamentally new weapons. A story about a new laser complex was accompanied by a demo video from the Ministry of Defense.

Several models of weapons, presented in early March, at that time did not have a name. In this regard, the Ministry of Defense launched a competition on the choice of names for it. In the evening of March 22, these events ended, and according to their results, the laser complex was given a new name “Peresvet”. The voting results were summarized live on the Russia 1 TV channel in the 60 Minutes program. Among the guests of the telecast was the Deputy Minister of Defense Yuri Borisov, responsible for promising developments. Among other things, he spoke about some still unknown features of the laser complex.



Y. Borisov reminded about foreign developments in the field of laser weapons. Many countries work in this area. In particular, in the United States, experimental complexes of this class have already been created, capable of fighting manpower or light armored vehicles. However, as the Deputy Minister of Defense noted, Russian specialists have certain advantages over their American counterparts. What they are, he, however, did not specify.

The new information about the Peresvet complex, its features and development paths was published on May 9 by Zvezda TV channel Zvezda, and again received from the Deputy Minister of Defense. In an interview for the national television channel, Yu. Borisov spoke about current work, as well as promising models of weapons and equipment. Among other topics, the fate of the Peresvet system was touched upon.

Journalist Yuri Podkopaev recalled the weapons systems presented by the president in March and asked if there was any intention to show the combat laser complex during a parade on Red Square?

Y. Borisov replied that this was possible. The first show of Peresvet at the parade may take place over the next two or three years. Such an assessment of the possible timing is due to the fact that the project has already moved into the modernization stage. Completion of certain works on the complex will allow organizing its passage in a mechanized column during the parade.

The deputy minister noted that at present and in the existing configuration, the laser complex is large and complex. It includes a large number of support vehicles needed to work in a combat position. According to the results of modernization, the size of the complex will be reduced. When Peresvet becomes quite compact, it will probably be presented to the public. Where the "premiere" of the newest system will take place - at the parade on Victory Day or at one of the military-technical exhibitions - has not yet been clarified.

More recent reports on the Peresvet complex are not yet available. However, the few public information well complements the incomplete picture left over from the first announcement. At the same time, a significant part of the data, including those of greatest interest, remains a secret. So, officials have not yet talked about the purpose of the laser complex, and also did not specify its technical characteristics and combat capabilities. In these questions, it is necessary to rely on various assessments, not all of which can be true.

* * *

It should be recalled that it was shown in early March. The official video from the Ministry of Defense, the entire length of 21, demonstrated for a second some components of the Peresvet system, but did not disclose any details. However, what they saw allowed to make estimates and projections.



The video began with frames showing the complex on the march. Two truck-mounted KamAZ trucks with special semi-trailers were moving along the highway; their appearance did not indicate internal equipment. Then they demonstrated the process of deploying the complex to a position in which at least five cars and trailers with various equipment, including communication and control devices, were involved. The viewers were also shown calculation jobs equipped with liquid crystal monitors and control panels.

Finally, the video showed the actual laser installation of a new type. It is located in the aft part of one of the vans with hydraulic jacks for leveling, and is protected by a sliding roof. On the platform inside the van is installed U-shaped support, which is placed on the swinging unit. At one end of the rather large casing there is a large device-emitter with a movable protective cover, as well as a pair of optical devices of a characteristic tubular type. Guidance in two planes is carried out by turning the swinging block on the support and changing the position of the radiator, which was shown in the video.

At the same time, neither the video clip nor the accompanying president’s speech contained any specific data on the purpose, technical characteristics or features of the operation of the complex. However, this fact only contributed to the emergence of a number of versions and assumptions that could hardly have appeared with the timely publication of official information.

According to one of the most common opinions, the Peresvet combat laser complex is intended for use as part of an air defense. The available equipment obviously allows him to find and take air targets for tracking, and then attack them with a laser beam. High-power luminous flux can, at a minimum, disrupt the operation of the enemy's optical-electronic systems or completely disable them.

In addition, in the presence of a high-power radiator, the combat complex can damage not only the optics, but also the structural elements of the aircraft or their weapons. In the latter case, the beam must literally burn through the target body, and then damage its internal equipment or provoke the detonation of warheads.



Such capabilities can be used to combat strike aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles or aviation means of destruction - in general, for any purpose equipped with optics, or having melting structural elements. Apparently, the latest Peresvet complex turns out to be the first domestic real result of work in this area - and the first air defense laser received by the troops.

A few days ago, the Deputy Minister of Defense indicated that several vehicles were part of the Peresvet system, and this could interfere with its display at the parade. Such features of the complex have become known since the day of the first announcement. So, the demonstration video showed that another vehicle is in the firing position next to the semi-trailer-carrier of the combat laser, and both components of the complex are connected to each other by numerous cables. Most likely, the second Peresvet machine carries autonomous means of power supply.

To obtain high technical and combat characteristics, a combat laser needs adequate power. Therefore, the generator of the required power may simply not fit in the same semi-trailer with a laser installation. It should be noted that in the recent past, a version was expressed about the use of a promising nuclear power plant as part of the Peresvet complex. For all its strangeness and ambiguity, this assumption fully justifies the existence of a separate carrier of means of energy supply.

In a recent interview with the Deputy Minister of Defense, Y. Borisov indicated that the defense industry is currently engaged in the modernization of the Peresvet system, and the result of this work could be an increase in operational characteristics by reducing the number of maintenance vehicles. Such tasks, among other things, can be solved by creating “combined” machines and semi-trailers that carry several systems at once, while they are located on different carriers. In particular, an operator's cabin and a laser installation can be located on the common chassis.

According to official data, a number of Peresvet complexes have already been delivered to the troops and are in operation. At the same time, modernization is being carried out aimed at improving the main characteristics and ease of use. The army has already received a fundamentally new weapon that will become even better in the foreseeable future. And besides, after the upcoming update, which will take several years to come, the combat laser complex will be able to get into a mechanized column and pass through Red Square. It remains to hope that new interesting information about the Peresvet project will appear before the updated complexes can take part in the parade.

      Yeah, there’s a lot of bukoff, but little use. IMHO is a continuation of the work on the topics "Terra" and "Omega"
      Since the mid-1950s, large-scale work has been carried out in the USSR on the development and testing of high-power laser weapons as a means of directly hitting targets in the interests of strategic anti-space and anti-missile defense. Among others, the Terra and Omega programs were implemented. The laser tests were carried out at the Sary-Shagan test site (air defense, missile defense, air defense system, air defense system, air defense system) in Kazakhstan. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, work at the Sary-Shagan training site was stopped. "

          Here on the effectiveness of these laser miracles is not heard. According to American advertisements, in order to disable a flying target, you need to shine a point in ONE for up to a minute, I wonder where such conditions will be observed. While the laser and the railgun from a series of fiction without realities. Perhaps in an airless space a laser will work, but so far on earth there are only good intentions with a huge economy and without minimal results ...

            Do not argue. The article suggested that a nuclear reactor was used as a source of Peresvet’s energy. The assumption is quite logical, given the success of Russia in reducing nuclear reactors, presented in the message to the Federal Assembly. And if there really is a nuclear reactor, then we can talk about increasing the power of the laser. In this case, less time will be required to disable the flying target.
            But as I said, you should not argue. We can only assume and build our conclusions on other conclusions, no more.

        I agree on something - this is only a prototype so far, over the next decade it will be corrected and modernized, it will become more powerful and most likely will completely change its appearance. And the declared characteristics will change at times, then this is a beautiful name and you can give it.

      Not quite a prototype. Rather, a pre-production product, as several complexes have already been delivered to the troops. There is some strange tendency recently with new weapons for our army — they often begin to arrive in the troops in serial modernization.
      By the way, I believe that both the T-14 and SU-57 will also go into the series with the letter M. Moscow Region is in a hurry and in a hurry to developers, as can be seen from the introduction of new weapons: Dagger, Peresvet, SU-57 with an engine of the first stage, and so on ...
      As for Peresvet, it is not yet clear what kind of niche in the air defense line this complex will occupy in the end.

        And what, the military tests have already been canceled? Many products, even in the USSR, were adopted into service greatly modified after military tests. The truth about this was not talk, the regime of secrecy was respected.

          At this time, we must talk about a total such process, and not isolated cases. I’m not saying that it’s bad. It’s good, because there is an understanding that they work, improve and improve weapons. I am talking about the haste of the Ministry of Defense in the issue of adoption. That is, apparently, the Ministry of Defense has an understanding that a military conflict with a serious enemy can really take place, despite the nuclear triad, statements and logic.

            Yes, here we can agree, there is a danger. But on the other hand, according to the recollections of many weapon designers and manufacturers of the 30s, immediately after the adoption of the samples for armament, they demanded the mass production of weapons using temporary technologies, not giving time to prepare the production, but then the time was in a hurry. It’s too early to draw a conclusion, but it seems to me that the same situation is now developing. Only the goal is different, not to saturate the army with weapons, but to quickly recapture the funds invested in development and make a profit.

              Partly you, I think, are right. What's so bad about that? There isn’t enough money for the defense industry, and this is obvious ... accordingly, the more we sell, the more we get and, therefore, there will be money for developing a new one, modernizing the existing and updating the army as a whole.
              But I think this is one of the reasons. All the same, what month are we balancing at the turn of the Caribbean crisis-2 and I think this is the main reason for such a rush. At the same time, there are more and more challenges for us and countries that would like to take our side are looking at us. And here the reputation question is very acute. That is, if, for example, they said that we would shoot down and drown carriers, in case our citizens suffer from a missile strike, then we should shoot down and drown.

    To obtain high technical and combat characteristics, a combat laser needs adequate power. Therefore, the generator of the required power may simply not fit in one semitrailer with a laser installation.


    And what about the component of the combat laser, indicates that it is solid-state?
    Maybe the laser is chemical and it doesn’t need a power plant, but it needs capacities with pump components :))

    Of course, a solid-state laser is more compact, but its power is accordingly limited.

They say you can’t shove a 100 kilowatt diesel generator into KAMAZ, but the “vigorous station”, which, in fact, a steam engine with a boiler, a condenser, etc., is possible, is beautiful, in a word.

    When the experts watched this video, they expressed an interesting idea. In their opinion, these vans have nothing to do with lasers. This whole system is simply obliged to heat up very decently, because the laws of physics have not yet been canceled, and the heat has to be removed somewhere and somehow, but the pictures do not see a single (!) Even elementary ventilation hole.

        Exactly. However, as practice shows, and some developments in the world already exist, lasers with a power of 50 kW require quite a decent heat sink. Lasers of lower power, I do not even consider, because they are not very suitable for practical use.

I do not discount this opportunity! But there is a generator at least 600 kW, meters on 5 length and tone on 7 weight should be.

              In terms of size, the typical 600 kW diesel generator is almost exactly fit the 20ft container, the weight is two to three times less, even Chinese diesel generators of similar capacity in 3,5 tons are packed by weight in a soundproof container.
              Here the question is in the accumulation of energy - because, perhaps, for the accumulation of energy are used the capacity of a certain mass, which may exceed the weight of the generator.
              I can be mistaken, but rather in a container with a laser, a stabilization and guidance system + power bank (it should be located in the immediate vicinity of the laser, since it must have an impressive cross-section bus to transfer the peak load to the source of coherent radiation.
              But the generator can be remote (the military has to be remote), so as not to "shine" a position in the IR range.
              Emitter size does not look larger than 20-30 kW.
              Or the developers managed to make a compact version with much more power - so far all the guesses.

                In one trailer, a laser unit with a control point, in the second trailer a block of superionistors, in a second machine a 1.2 MW generator.

      Not the fact that they showed us a real system. It may be, but the fact that the video can be an elementary props. Typically, secret objects are not even externally shown, because experts can figure out "how much."

        Exactly! The scene where the rotating part of the emitter is shown is a video editing with poor quality 3D graphics! I think the quality of the graphics was intentionally of poor quality ...

      Another props, it seems to me.
      I think everyone remembers having no analogues in the world of a battle laser from sewer pipes.

        Gene Concrete! When it seems - pray! Instead of using a candle, it is not practical to use a laser ...

    The most important question. For what purposes is this complex used? Air defense? Missile defense? Nbsp; Maybe ammunition knocks down? Maybe the satellites in orbit are dazzling so that reconnaissance is not carried out? Or enemy snipers in half with art-correctors? Could voice at least the appointment.

      Trial operation - accumulation of data to optimize the design, control, find out the real combat effectiveness.
      Operation in the army brings a lot of useful information - from operating conditions to the most incredible nuances - such as "can a laser really brew strong coffee?" - there are figures in the army, capable of incredible "experiments."

        That's for sure. We have one "figure" decided to measure the voltage with an ammeter. Fortunately, he remained alive, but he burned the power rack in the trash, could not be restored, I had to change it.

    Let the adversary occupy himself with this question.

    Well ... Here you can say without a stretch, "and here is the theater for you." Guess about the functions and capabilities, catch photos from the satellites of five container ships, sneak on the soft legs to the military unit, with such difficulty defined. Everything is in another place ... This is already the second half of the 21st century ... so to speak, "a long-term thing". Therefore go for the "hungry". Well, of course, there is something. What could be more effective than growing a normal thing under the guise of such "smoke".

    Many products, even in the USSR, were adopted into service greatly modified after military tests.

    At this time, we must talk about a total such process, and not isolated cases. I’m not saying that it’s bad. It’s good, because there is an understanding that they work, improve and improve weapons. I am talking about the haste of the Ministry of Defense in the issue of adoption. That is, apparently, the Ministry of Defense has an understanding that a military conflict with a serious enemy can really take place, despite the nuclear triad, statements and logic.

    And it is right! Do not let yourself relax and doze off, but how it will work out with Roskosmos. Where everything rotted and fell apart after Korolev, but they ate heartily and rested freely, to the full, to the dump.

    Laser, a delicate matter of Petruch. It may turn out that when they tell us a little about him, we have to admit: well, we are all fools. So be careful to be in the comments.

    Do not envy. When there is a news - most often swear. Yes, and crafts there day and night. Until everyone completes ...

    Infa, acts extremely poorly and generally. And what to expect, a new product that uses new principles. Let less information be better, but the product itself is improved and brought to a level where it will be impossible or extremely difficult to overtake the Russian Federation in this direction. So we will wait.

    As we like to throw all poop! Why burn planes if the pilot is enough to dazzle with a powerful laser! Or the optical system of his missiles is slammed with a beam. All! The plane turns into scrap metal! Especially night vision devices. Imagine attacking tanks or helicopters. Flashed a ray across the horizon with a large but powerful spot of light, and ay, mom, where am I? Good to blind snipers! The disabled person of the first group also blinked in his direction. If you use the laser correctly, you can stop the attack of any division by turning it into a blind herd! And you would burn all tanks with meter armor with a laser beam. Eyes need to be burned, photocells, photo equipment and so on. This is already enough!

    I think they are preparing a marine version, on an armored train and a stationary one at strategic points, given the size.
