Russia Increased The Range Of Its EMP Guns To 10km: TASS Report

Russia has reportedly increased the range of its EMP (electromagnetic pulse) weapons to up to 10 kilometers, according to unnamed sources of TASS.

Reportedly, tests were carried out and various devices were damaged beyond repair, the weapons also allegedly entirely counter unmanned aerial vehicles.

The range of “guaranteed destruction” of the internal electronics of whatever is targeted by the Russian EMP rifles within the scope of the tests was brought up to 10 kilometers, according to previous reports the range was between 1 and 2 kilometers, meaning that this is a massive upgrade.

This was reported by TASS two sources in the military-industrial complex.

“Tests of electromagnetic weapons have been going on since 2015, the last firing tests of the EMP guns took place in the spring. Currently, the average effective range of electromagnetic guns firing at air targets is 7-8 km, the maximum is approximately 10,” one of the agency’s source said. He clarified that at the initial stage, the effective range was only “a couple of kilometers.”

Another source told TASS that “the destruction of aircraft at a distance of 10 km is provided by “burning” the electronic components of their on-board equipment.”

The source added that the shot of an EMP gun lasts a millisecond and, given the distance to the target, reaches it instantly, since electromagnetic radiation propagates at the speed of light.

The sources also explained that it is necessary to distinguish the defeat caused by the EMP weapon from the suppression of the enemy’s electronics, which is provided by electronic warfare systems (EW).

Most modern electronic warfare systems can suppress electronics at ranges of several hundred kilometers, however, they have incomparably lower power and do not incapacitate devices. EMP guns, in contrast, destroy equipment “at the physical level.”

In EMP guns, electromagnetic radiation of superhigh frequency, also called an electromagnetic “shot”, is used as a damaging factor. The radiation of an electromagnetic gun in a split second heats the affected object to extremely high temperatures.

In particular, it is reportedly planned to equip an unmanned version of a 6th generation fighter jet with such weapons. On a manned aircraft, electromagnetic weapons are dangerous to use, as they can harm their own pilot.

The editor-in-chief of the magazine Arsenal of the Fatherland, Viktor Murakhovsky, in a conversation with the NSN, said that electromagnetic weapons have long been in service in Russia, and noted that this area was actively developed back in the days of the Soviet Union.

“We already have such ammunition, ranging from a shell for a grenade launcher to combat units of anti-aircraft missiles. Now such electromagnetic generators are simply being improved with the use of new materials, increased output of electromagnetic radiation. <…> In conflicts this was not applied. There were tests, after which they were put into service,” the specialist noted.

    Haven’t they been testing them in Syria. Which is proving a marvelous exercise, to test out Russia’s new toys. Fine tuning them, in the process.

    If there is a Nazi Zionist crew aboard the enemy plane, the risk is that the weapon will burn even those few neuronal cells, that survived the destruction caused by the imaginary exceptionalism taught them by the grueling propaganda.

    We have also emp guns with increased ranges in our US space command centres.

  • Assad must stay

    Wow very cool please stop israel from attacking syria and iran mister putinski!!!! You can stop it!

    • Wayne Nicholson

      To do that they have to arm the Lebanese. IDF aircraft don’t overfly Syrian air space they launch missiles from the Bekka valley

      • Assad must stay

        No all they have to do is scramble some sukhois or migs anytime they detect IAF taking off

        • Wayne Nicholson

          Unless those IDF aircraft are targeting Russian assets that’s never going to happen. Starting WW3 over Syria is NOT in the best interests of the Russian people.

          Maybe in 50 years after Russia really has a chance to recover from WW2 and the 1990’s but wars are expensive and hard on the working man ….. give the poor Russian some peace.

          The USA / Israel can throw $trillions down the war shithole and they barely feel it at home but Russians don’t have 3 or 4 generations of inherited wealth to carry them

          • Assad must stay

            They have done it before, and IAF planes just withdrew back to israel, I don’t know why they dont do it all the time, stop being so dramatic, Russia has the most advanced systems in the world and can detect anything anywhere

          • JIMI JAMES

            Money mean sht,provide there’s adequate,Russia certainly has more than?

    Another nail in the coffin of modern carrier battle groups.

    This is the mother of all weapons, which can bring an entire civilization in stone age (depending on the range). Usually fires only when a nuke explodes. I wonder how Russia made it possible.
