    Russia's Electromagnetic Weapons Could Be 'More Efficient Than Nuclear Weapons'

    Russia is developing radio-electronic weapons, which use a powerful UHF impulse capable of destroying all electronic equipment miles away and even changing the course of a war.

    Alexander Khrolenko (RIA Novosti) – The Listva, a remotely operated mine clearance vehicle capable of detecting and blowing up mines up to 100 meters away, is one such weapon.

    An armored vehicle equipped with a UHF emitter moves in front of a mobile missile system. It detects radio-controlled landmines planted along and away from the road using ground-penetrating radar and then uses ultra-high-frequency rays to neutralize them.

    This is a novel technique, which had never been used before.

    During a drill on Wednesday, some 20 real cellphone-controlled explosive devices were planted along the route of a column of Yars mobile ballistic missile systems. A single Listva vehicle spotted all of them and blew them up long before the missiles reached the area.

    In the next two years Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces will receive over 150 Listva robotic mine clearing vehicles.

    Future Weapons

    The unique radio-electronic weapons based on new physical principles, which were successfully tested in Russia last fall use mobile electromagnetic emitters to disable missile warheads and onboard aircraft electronics many miles away.

    The electromagnetic bombs developed by Russia can be more effective than nuclear weapons because they are able to neutralize entire armies with just one short electromagnetic impulse.

    Moreover, unlike already exiting electronic jammers, they can completely take out or seriously damage even off-line weapons like tanks, grounded planes and missiles in silos.

    Earlier, media reports said that Russia’s defense industry had come up with the Alabuga, a new electro-magnetic missile, which uses a powerful UHF emitter to disable all enemy electronics within a radius of 3.5 kilometers (2.3 miles), turning it into “a heap of scrap metal.”

    A directed beam of waves of a particular frequency has a sledgehammer effect on electronic equipment knocking out computers and navigation systems by physically destroying their motherboards.

    Russia plans to install such weapons on its sixth-generation fighter drones because powerful UHF radiation can kill pilots.

    Radio-electronic weapons are able to jam a tank’s loading mechanism, blow up artillery shells inside a turret and destroy enemy soldiers hiding inside a bunker or taking cover up to 100 meters underground.

    Foreign Designs

    The US, Israel and China are equally busy developing their own types of electromagnetic weapons. During Operation Desert Storm in Iraq in 1991, the Americans used a relatively primitive electronic bomb by fitting the warheads of their Tomahawk cruise missiles with carbon fiber.

    As a result, the missiles short-circuited the electrical lines of Iraqi power stations and power lines severely degrading the country’s vital infrastructure and air defenses.

    The Pentagon used more advanced electromagnetic weapons during NATO’s 1999 aggression against Yugoslavia. In the first two week alone, the US Air Force dropped over 400 super-heavy JDAM gliding bombs packed with graphite and metallic fibers and particles knocking out the country’s entire air defense control system.

    Since electromagnetic weapons are capable of pushing a nation back centuries, countries are now developing ever ever-new means of defending themselves again these fearsome weapons.

    Rumours about experiments underway inside a complex in the Urals, I can't give details but it's something you think it exists only in Sci-fi movies, talking about EMP weapons, if #Russia takes the upper hand in this field it may become the world's uncontested military superpower.

    According to rumours only the most patriotic members of the Russian intelligence, those who will never betray #Russia, are overseeing this project which it's completely carried out in underground facilities.

    In light of the danger posed by a more and more aggressive #US regime the experiments will be transformed into something usable as soon as possible but info about the new weapon will not be released to the public.

    Well, there is a suspicion that the US is developing genetic weapons to kill certain ethnicities, but any genetic targeted disease or poison could easily be reversed to target those who it intended to be safe from the weapon instead.

    Personally I sometimes think a super bomb that will just kill everyone... some sort of tera ton powered bomb that will shift the earths orbit or split the planet might be the solution too.

    Really just more of the same... first nukes were a super weapon then stealth... now EMP and hypersonic weapons...

    Underground and its secrets guarded by the most patriotic of Russian officers.

    But of course this Russ_Warrior knows all about it, and can't tell us about it. Yet he is.

    Exactly.

    We already know Russia is working on EMP weapons. They themselves made no secret of it. Even with artillery rounds.

    The rest is just trying to drum up hype.
