Americans will destroy enemies with lightning

Americans will destroy enemies with lightningThe United States military is testing a new super-weapon. And here we have in mind not the railgun and the combat lasers that have been successfully tested, thereby making a lot of noise, but real lightning.

A new superweapon is literally capable of causing lightning strikes where a battle is taking place. Using it weapon future, the military will be able, for example, to undermine the mines hidden by the enemy, or even destroy the enemy’s armored vehicles.

The principle of its operation is as follows: with the help of a laser, a special channel is created in the air, through which electrical discharge is carried out. Thus, the military had the opportunity to control lightning, as well as send it to the right place.

According to George Fisher, who is a leading specialist in the Center for Research, Development and Design of Armaments of the American Army, they never get tired of watching lightning destroy targets during experiments.

He explained that at the heart of the work of the new weapon lies the peculiarity of the physics of lightning strikes. It is known that lightning is a powerful electrical discharge arising between the earth and thunderstorm clouds. The formation of lightning occurs in the place where there is the greatest difference in electric potentials, its movement is carried out in the direction of least resistance.

If we talk about new weapons, the creation of such a path for lightning occurs artificially.

          Hi Valera. Nikola Tesla claimed that he possesses knowledge that can cause directional lightning anywhere in the world, and there are fairy tales that even did this, because he supposedly knew the principles of generating electricity in the upper atmosphere. But I doubt that bike too, although I respect Tesla very much, and Amerov’s bike.

    The USA scared us with a laser, showed the program where they made a laser in the USSR and realized that it was large and could be reflected by a mirror coating on armored vehicles. Then Russian scientists laughed at the development of the USA and said that nothing would come of them. Apparently the developer replayed in Red Alert 3, and they’re afraid that the Russians will have something like Yuri. Well, either this is a stupid homosexual or a fraud for a huge amount of money (stupidly stealing the budget) of the taxes of citizens of the Hamburger country!

      The USSR was developing such a Terra weapon from 1964 -1990. It lacks power, yes, the installation is huge, the gun will be unstable, the firing range (it’s impossible to install such a whopper on the ship, because even the aircraft carrier will be small there.) The result of Soviet scientists is obvious - a project, like a laser, is simply a waste of money for hypersonic rockets far surpass them in everything.

    He explained that the basis of the new weapons is a feature of the physics of lightning strikes. It is known that lightning is a powerful electric discharge arising between the ground and thunderclouds.


    and in clear weather it means either a temporary truce, or like this:

    Elementary magic. Lightning Release

    Theory

    Create Ball Lightning

    Creating ball lightning resembles the synthesis of creating just lightning and a pulsar. Simply put, it is necessary to concentrate the Lightning energy not in the actual fingers, but in the palms, and then, gradually releasing it, “roll” the lightning ball. With a certain level of practice in the field of creating just lightning, this turns out quite quickly.
    Like pulsars, ball lightnings can be launched individually, or can be bursted with the help of a “crossbow” hand construction. However, do not forget that ball lightning, unlike a pulsar, will not calm down until it finds a target, and therefore the lines of such balls are very dangerous!
    It is not possible to release ball lightning before determining the target. Also, it should not be allowed in the direction of any reservoir or watercourse, in flammable objects and in living creatures, except in cases of necessary self-defense

    - what kind of "mulka" ?! Do we change all household appliances after every thunderstorm? And the stability of military equipment is much higher than that of household equipment. Today, planes are not afraid to fly into thunderclouds, and tanks do not even want to "sneeze" on lightning discharges.
    Maybe the amers themselves are going to charge the clouds? Well, well, the flag from the mattress is in their hands! And we have long known how to initiate the discharge of a thundercloud, it remains to come up with a useful application of the energy received by the gift.

    "With the help of a laser, a special channel is created in the air, an electric discharge is passed through it. Thus, the military has the opportunity to control lightning, and also direct it to the right place." - and this place is primarily the installation itself. Electricity has the ability to follow the path of the LOWEST resistance, and here a high-voltage air duct is laid to the atmospheric electrical potential. And in the conditions of thunderclouds from this "miracle" of the machine you need to quickly quickly kangaroo jumps (only feet together) and move as far as possible.
    In fact, this insanity strongly resembles the patented idea of ​​scooping up electricity from the atmosphere (our invention, in my opinion), just a twisted upside down.
    As for powerful power sources - after the discharge of Soviet scientific personnel on this topic - the school of academician NN Semenov, which may have been done in the field of VMG-UVI.

    A simple lightning rod will save you from a lightning strike, this time. The clouds we scatter over the enemy territories, like Luzhkov before the holidays, these are two. Talk about a combat laser, so far from the field of projects. Our lasers, not combat, no worse, they kill some birds in the fields. When the Shuttle flew over us, they sent such a one at him, the poor fellow almost fell off orbit.
