Launching a PLA rifle with a blinding laser

59
The Chinese military department had at its disposal rifles with a blinding laser, regardless of what weapon violates a UN convention, reports Look with reference to the Washington Free Beacon.




"China is updating its blinding laser weapons to meet the needs of various combat operations," the Chinese military newspaper quoted Free Beacon as saying. “Blinding laser weapons are primarily used for blinding targets at a short distance, as well as for damaging night vision devices.”

The State Department has already expressed concern about this, stating that such “weapons violate the provisions of the United Nations Convention 1980 of the Year on Specific Conventional Weapons”.

“The convention includes a protocol added in the 1998 year, which prohibits the use of blinding laser weapons in combat, the publication said. China has joined the convention, ”reminds Free Beacon.

The publication reminds that in the US, combat lasers are used in the Air Force and Navy, but the Pentagon has no plans for the production of laser rifles, similar to the Chinese.

According to Chinese weapons expert Rick Fisher, "the Chinese army has at least two types of laser guns and may be trying to sell them abroad."

“While they are positioned as help for the police, but they can also be used on the battlefield,” said Fisher.

    Once again, the State Department expressed concern. But the Americans were scared!

          As I understand it, this is a police weapon, not for military operations, the United States again inflates from an elephant’s fly.

            As I understand it, this is the safest weapon. Well, amers have it. Either orange, then phosphorus, then napalm, and even cores were used. Well, right angels!

            Nothing like this. This instrument is able to disable night vision devices, and for merisos on these devices both people and equipment are fixated. That's right. Watch out when scared.

              If the UN has a law that limits this blinding, then it must be implemented or repealed. But no one has the right to violate.

              Neither Americans nor Chinese, nor Russians.

              Law is law.

                However, the UN has restrictions on carpet bombing, on the use of phosphorus munitions, and all kinds of mines. However, not all of them will fulfill it, referring to the fact that they did not sign these papers. There is a law prohibiting the proliferation of nuclear weapons. So do American bombs in Europe. In the Netherlands, in Germany? Or in your eye the logs are not visible? Or is law not law?

                The problem is that the Americans put a bolt on this law and demand its implementation only by others.
                The Americans have ready-made samples of powerful laser weapons that can dazzle people in the same way, and for ten years now they have had the same rifles for the police, the police are not the army, they can. In general, the Americans scored, the Chinese scored, only Dyadyavova will abide by the "international laws" until the very end, and what should he do and so on for any reason.

Something about the Russian Air Forces bases, then about the intervention of 200 thousand Russian troops in the internal affairs of an independent ... But they themselves pushed their military bases around the world, and even "advertise" forcefully " American-style democracy! fool

      If it is still in the IR range, then the enemy will just see a black screen. And he will always see him. The retina of the eye is not restored, but burned at the expense of times. The IR range is invisible to the human eye and penetrates well through the liquid medium of the vitreous body of the eye. So, a battery-powered laser is enough to slash the enemy’s eyes and make him disabled. And as for the conventions, let the Africans shut up - did they abide by the conventions by bombing Yugoslavia? Did the UN stop them strongly? They do not care. In war, like war. It is important who has a stronger weapon.

    A laser rifle in combined arms combat is ineffective, if only because everywhere there is smoke that extremely weakens the beam. But with the maser, you can make a rustle.

      Therefore, smart people do not use laser rifles.
      There are laser rangefinders for this. It also acts on the eyes and optics, but also measures distance. and most importantly, everything is absolutely legal.
      Here is such a product. LPR-1 called. Slightly heavier than binoculars. And more convenient.

    The Convention prohibits only irreparable damage, not temporary.

    it is forbidden to use laser weapons specifically designed for use in hostilities solely or in order to cause permanent blindness to the organs of vision of a person who does not use optical devices.


    In general, this is the real thing, unlike Amer’s attempts to shoot down missiles at ranges of hundreds of kilometers.

    We have blinding lasers in Russia even in children. And bought from China for a penny (800-2000 rubles). I saw power up to 10 watts. In this way, not only the retina, but even the paper can be burned in a split second.

    I thought for these purposes I need a powerful laser pointer and a long-range optical sight / telescope, with their rigid joint.

    Another step in a shield / sword relationship. The danger of such (not manual) weapons is that they can be automated. Blind all visible optics, including the optics of targeting missiles.

    The shooters' eyes can be protected with the help of an intermediary between the optics and the eye - either a camera, with the image displayed on the monitor (chik), or an automatic "curtain" (mechanical or Liquid Crystal), which works at a brightness higher than normal.
