Russia has developed and successfully tested radio-electronic weapons systems unmatched anywhere in the world, the state-run news agency ‘Ria Novosti’ reported on Thursday.
“Real prototypes of such weapons have already been created and they have proven their efficiency,” RIA Novosti quoted a representative of the RussianUnited Instrument Manufacturing Company (OPK) as saying.
Describing the new technology, the OPK’s representative used the term – “weapons based on new physical principles.” The newly developed system includes armaments that employ physical processes and phenomena not generally used in modern weapons.
“It conducts indirect physical impact on the on-board equipment of aircraft or drones and neutralizes precision-guided weapons,” the representative said.
The weapon was presented to Russian military officials in September 2016 during a closed performance at the annual military expo ‘Army 2016’ outside Moscow.
The brand-new Russian remains unrivaled.
We recall the US destroyer USS Donald Cook was targeted by a Russian Su-24 tactical bomber which carried an electronic warfare device in 2014. The Russian Su-24 flew over the warship triggering an incident that completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest.
The Su-24’s device disabled all radars, control circuits, systems, information transmission, etc. on board the US destroyer. Then, it simulated a missile attack against the literally deaf and blind USS Donald Cook. The US destroyer immediately run towards a port in Romania.
