The Ministry of Defense reports on the creation of a new laser weapon and its purpose

47

At the end of last year, new domestic laser systems "Peresvet" appeared in the arsenal of the Russian army. Now the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announces the creation of a new laser weapons and its purpose.


This was announced during an interview with the newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda by the Deputy Head of the Defense Department of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko.

According to him, the laser systems created by our defense industry will be used mainly to combat enemy drones. The deputy minister noted that in the future, the laser armament of our army will not be limited only to "Peresvet".

The Deputy Minister also announced the creation of other laser systems that would counter enemy unmanned aerial vehicles. In addition, their targets will be optical and optoelectronic technology.

Krivoruchko noted that the new weapons will be used in conjunction with fire weapons to destroy armored vehicles to counter the strikes of high-precision weapons.

He also said that a radio frequency complex is being developed to disable the electronic equipment of drones.

For the first time, it became known about the new Peresvet laser complexes on March 1, 2018 from the message of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly. By the end of the year, these units had already taken up combat duty.

            Something is not enough of them, there are videos, but these are more private, not film studios. Look how the films were shot in the tips about weapons, the direct film is real, although this is an advertisement.

          - Did I talk about talents? I was talking about commercials for which there is no money.
          But actually, I don’t understand why to shoot such videos? For potential buyers? So they do not study weapons on such videos.

            I agree. They do not learn from them. But the "Top Gun" mentioned above is not a video. And not filmed for buyers. It was filmed and sold to rent in Russia solely for propaganda purposes. After the release of this "masterpiece" I have repeatedly heard admiring expressions, such as, "... where are we going against them? Look what they are doing in the sky." Those. the propaganda worked. So, we divide "videos and" masterpieces "into introductory, advertising and propaganda. There was another French film about mirages. Shooting in the sky there is simply gorgeous. This is what I mean: We need to create films about our technique with the highest quality and direction. Do you remember the Soviet film "Black Shark"? It was originally shot as an advertising film. And continue in the same spirit. Fortunately, the shooting technique has grown by an order of magnitude + computers to help. And let exceptional ordinary people then shit in the corners.

        You're right. But ours are silent, although the work is in full swing.
        But the Yankes publish:
        For example, during an exercise in 2013, the American 60 kW HEL MD laser successfully hit 150 aerial targets, including 60 mm mortar shells and small drones.

        We have a similar development. The day before, there was evidence that a laser complex based on a BAZ-6910 wheeled tractor was put on state tests in Russia. The unit with an output power of 15 to 50 kW is designed to destroy aircraft ammunition, mortar shells and small drones.
        The Russian laser is capable of firing up to 30 shots in a sector from -180 to +180 degrees horizontally at one refueling. At the same time, our system will be able to work effectively at temperatures from -20 to +50 degrees Celsius, which is about a quarter higher than the capabilities of competitors.
        It is worth noting that the tests have already demonstrated the efficiency of the engineering structure, which means that the Russian laser has a chance to enter service in the foreseeable future.
        Somehow, however. bully

            And how do you rate this.
            The Drone Dome System from Raphael is designed to combat the drone threat both to protect armed forces and sensitive targets.
            Raphael has already sold a number of such systems to overseas customers, including the British Army, as well as to other undisclosed customers.

    And then they, too, quite by accident will jump on our plane, the same TU-95 in the Alaska region. They will apologize, and I will say - forgive me for shooting down, but this is not us, this is SAMOPUL.

    A question for the military. When will this laser weapon be created? Why talk about plans that have just been conceived? And why should the enemies know about these plans? Let these lasers be a gift and a surprise for everyone. They did, it knocks down not only drones, but even artillery, tank, and even hypersonic and mines, etc., 100 targets at once, at a distance from 1 meter to 50 km! In any weather and time of day.
