    Whos who of Russia talks about laser weapons


    Russia, like other countries, is working on state-of-the-art arms technologies, including laser,
    hypersonic and robotic weapons
    , President Putin said in the Black Sea city of Sochi on Friday.


    WHOS WHO talks about laser weapons for first time

    President RF wrote:Warfare has always been an area where the use of advanced science and technology.
    And today, in the XXI century, to strengthen the military potential of the leading countries of the world are
    actively used in the development of the most promising development of weapons, the latest achievements
    of science: it is and lasers, and hyper- and robotics.

    Serious attention is paid to the development of so-called weapons based on new physical principles,
    which allows selective, acupressure on critical elements of weapons, equipment, infrastructure potential enemy.

    This statement of Putin clearly shows that Russian lasers will be used on stationary targets of enemy. Lasers are not only used
    for missile defense(against warheads) but are also used against critical enemy installations deep under ground , concrete protected enemy installations,
    missile launchers ,air bases (jets , aircrafts ,ammunition storage dumps) , naval bases , military bases.

    I think hypersonic weapons and laser weapons will be given equal priority.
    HIgh precision weapons(hypersonic) will be used for mass damage. Destroying the air bases , naval bases in totality.
    Mass civilian , personnel casualties.BUt when the need to avoid mass civilian casualties ..for i.e attacking targets in
    qatar , UAE, Dubai , riyadh,Jordan  etc then laser weapons will be used.
    laser weapons will be used against ships, aircrafts parked/protected on runaway , missile launchers,
    missile storage(Prompt global strike weaponsstirage failities ) houses even if buried deep under ground.

    HIGH precision weapons will only be used if Trump is assasinated and Clinton becomes president. This is a very short explanation
    for application of hypersonic mass civilian/military casualty weapons.

    Rosatom will develop weapons on new physical principles

    State corporation Rosatom has begun developing a combat complex Zadira-16, operating on new physical principles, RIA Novosti reported. The contract was signed at the Military-2017 forum by Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov and director of the Rosatom enterprise of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center - All-Russian Research

    https://news.sputnik.ru/obschestvo/cb07eb6a72d50b39c246abe6fc8a7c8cb46fb056


    Lasers or any other beam weapon? or rail guns? or something else? any educated guess?



    Ps advise where to put it? if current post is not in a proper place.

    AFAIK Zadira means "trouble maker". So who knows Razz but whatever it is it'll make trouble for sure xD I hope the trouble is for enemy only, not for themselves.

    Actually I have given a link to 2 large scale  projects TERRA-3 and  OMEGA (in directoed energy russiadefence section . The technologies used there are pretty similar to the present VNIIEF complex.

    Actually i can just relate .. they were storing planet busting(gargantuan amounts of energy ) in magnetic generators.. they were not storing they were accumulate and release ..

    Technically in(books) it is called induction coil energy storage .. what is  that a  magnetic field is generated  when current goes through the coil..

    Google has just become useless in front of hyper tech coming from Russia..
    In this techniques
    bursts of Incoherent (out of phase in amp and freq etc etc) ,  huge amounts of magnetic and (EM )energy is released.. in radio (so called Elecro magnetic waves ) .. I mean EM radiation ..
    This is different from vibgyor(optic spectrum)
    There was a separate field of study for magnetic generators in russia. Magnetic generator technology was also given to the United States.

    In teh above link they are saying some 3 Mega Joule per cubic centimeter whethevr.. etc etetc.

    But now we come to teh VNIIEF institute this also is kind of institute which specializes in magnetic energy storage  and bursts.. well let us see in few years time what they will come up ..

    Russian are try to standardize systems and architectures for future weapons .. but they are not clearly defining what products they intend and for what purpose..

    From the article:

    EM weapons

    Will the hypersonic missiles be necessary when EM weapons are available .. EM weapons can turn all missiles/underground silos into duds.. Cool

    Sputniknews wrote:
    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.



    Difference between Electronic jammer and EM weapon .??
    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.

    Indeed most liely but... but magnetic flux explosive generators can be used also in
    EMP and energy sources for laser weapons...

    In every case if Rosatom masters technology the whole new world of new weaponry is open for Russians Smile

    Flushing the Copenhagen consensus on quantum mechanics down the toilet where it belongs is a good start on new physics discovery. If QM based propulsion
    exists (now pretty much an established fact) then all sorts of fun things can be brought into existence.

    Russia will create an anti-satellite aircraft with a laser
    the technologies developed during the creation of the Soviet "flying laser" A-60 are actively used to create a fundamentally new aircraft equipped with laser weapons, Interfax reported , citing an informed source.

    - The development of this complex took place, at the current stage of work completed. They will allow to make a step forward in the creation of such aircraft, "the source said. He added that the bearer of a combat laser, intended, in particular, for suppressing reconnaissance satellites, is likely to be a fundamentally new aircraft.

    In 1981, on the basis of the military transport aircraft Il-76, a flying laboratory A-60 was developed to develop the technology of a "flying laser". Outwardly, the aircraft was distinguished by an elongated nose end - it had an aiming system - and two fairings along the sides of the fuselage. Under them hid powerful turbogenerators, feeding a battle laser. The radiator itself was placed in a retractable turret under the flaps of the upper fuselage.

    At the beginning of the XXI century, work on the A-60 was suspended, as laser technology did not keep up with aviation. In 2009, an experiment was conducted: the laser beam emitted from the A-60 beam recorded a high-speed spacecraft at a distance of 1500 kilometers. In 2016, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov announced the completion of ground tests of a deeply modernized A-60 laser and the continuation of the flight tests of the system. In the report, PJSC "Scientific-Production Association" Almaz "named after Academician AA Rasppletin" for 2017 among other things "Development and research of a prototype of an aviation-based laser complex for counteraction in the infrared spectrum to reconnaissance means on land, sea, in the air and in space. "

    NPO Almaz is a backbone enterprise of the military-industrial complex of Russia, a developer of anti-aircraft missile systems and air defense systems. In the development of the "flying laser" involved Voronezh KB chimavtomatiki and Taganrog air complex named after Beriev.



    and now the question - fundamentally means here laser or that will not be based on Il-476?

    No, no, no, no.

    This is not system that will counter satelites, it has no such power, and its land based. This is to deal with UAVs, light PGMs...stuff like that. So those are two completely separated projects.

    A-60 to my knowledge lost its funding some years ago, if it got any work done on it, it started recently or will in future.

    When its about the aircraft, it has to be based on something existing, whats the point of wasting hundreds of million USD to make aircraft to carry a laser lol. Bad translation probably.

    Nope translation is good enough I've read it in original and it say the same Smile In Interfax there is one more important sentence though- Il-96 is to have production restarted.


    http://www.interfax.ru/russia/601331

    The source learned about the prospects of creating in Russia a new aircraft with laser weapons

    Moscow. 25 February. INTERFAX.RU - Russia will actively use the developments gained in the creation of the aircraft with laser weapons A-60, an informed source told Interfax.

    "The development of this complex took place, all the work done will allow to make a step forward in the creation of such aircraft," the source said.

    According to him, the future of the complex will be determined by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. "Most likely, later a fundamentally new similar aircraft will be created, but not on the basis of the IL-76MD," the source said.

    "At the current stage of work completed," - he said.

    In 2016 it became known that in Russia they plan to create a laser complex that will suppress reconnaissance means even in space.

    In the USSR, the experimental flying laboratory A-60 was developed, which was the carrier of laser weapons. According to open sources, the program was subsequently closed. In 2012, the newspaper "Izvestia" reported that the work on the flying laboratory will be resumed.

    The cruising altitude of IL 476  and the maximum altitude of IL 476  aircraft is the issue here. MoD has not publicised what is the issue here.
    They could have said that upgraded , modernized , new package whatever .Mod did not say anything of this sort.
    t directly told a "new" aircraft with similar payload.

    Russia went ahead with the ground based deployment fro anti missile /anti sat application.

    I think they have a whole regiment /divisions of this laser in ground based deployment. The video did not show any factory , design tests .
    This video was real time Army units using the laser.

    The laser is deadly .. against satellites .. it was used 2 times in 2014 though not confirmed.
    I think it is dual cannon .. or 2 beams maybe more  for maximum destructive effect on the target.

    and it looks a gas laser .

    Its still not in service its on state testing.

    And its not powerful enough to be used aganist satelites, there is a reason why ASAT variant is supposed to be based on aircraft.

    They could have said that upgraded , modernized , new package whatever .Mod did not say anything of this sort.
    t directly told a "new" aircraft with similar payload..


    Il 96 -
    Service ceiling 13,100 m
    Cruise Altitude 9,000 to 12,000 m
    Range with max. payload 12,800 km (6,907 nmi v - 58 tones) 5,000 km (2,699 nmi (92 tones)



    Il 76
    Range: 5,000 km (2,700 nmi) for (Il-76MD-90A/TD-90VD) with 52 tonne payload; 4,000 km (Il-76M/T); 4,400 km (Il-76MD/TD), 4,200 km (Il-76MF/TF)
    Service ceiling: 13,000 m (42,700 ft)


    I'd say its about range and/or payload.

    And its not powerful enough to be used aganist satelites,

    Define powerful enough...

    For use against a recon satellite with optical sensors and mirrors you don't need the laser to be powerful enough to blow it into tiny pieces... simply blinding it temporarily (ie dazzle it) or damage beyond repair the optical components would be sufficient...

    Yaah that could be a possiblity .. no doubt about that.


    I think it is a fully deployed laser. See those latest (not sure) latest vehicles.. kamaz trucks .. and Ural trucks  .fitted with compact machinery.
    For the west to develop similar machines it would take decades.

    U.S satellite blown and CNN propaganda

    NOAA satellite breaks up in orbit



    A US Air Force weather satellite exploded in Earth orbit on February 3, scattering debris along its path. In a report by Space.com, Air Force and space officials indicated the breakup of Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Flight 13 (DMSP-F13) was due to a malfunction of its battery system rather than a collision with a foreign body. Meanwhile, The European Space Agency (ESA) has released an assessment of the hazard posed by the debris.

    A 20-year-old military weather satellite apparently exploded in orbit Feb. 3 following what the U.S. Air Force described as a sudden temperature spike.
    Air Force Space Command said DMSP-F13’s power subsystem experienced “a sudden spike in temperature” followed by “an unrecoverable loss of attitude control.” As DMSP operators were deciding to “render the vehicle safe” the Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, identified a debris field near the satellite.
    The “catastrophic event” produced 43 pieces of space debris, according to Air Force Space Command, which disclosed the loss of the satellite Feb. 27 in response to questions from SpaceNews.
    The Air Force said it is continuing to track the debris and will issue conjunction warnings if necessary.

    Sputniknews Russian laser

    During his address to the Federal Assembly, President Vladimir Putin shocked observers when he said
    that Russia's progress in laser weaponry was "not just a concept or a plan,"
    and that the army was already being equipped with combat lasers.

    "I do not want to reveal more details. It is not the time yet.
    But experts will understand that with such weaponry,
    Russia's defense capacity has multiplied,
    " Putin added.



    Crimean lawmaker Natalya Poklonskaya proposed calling the laser system 'Crimea', and
    the drone platform Sevastopol, "in honor of the historical reunification of Russian lands" in 2014.

    Well she is not wrong because of crimea crisis 2 major U.S satellites
    were blown up by this same laser , after that Deep state took over .. with fake news

    Putin did the right thing to put this information out. The retards running NATO really believe that Russia has no
    technological and scientific capacity and potential. These f*ckwads don't even have physics degrees and think
    they know all there is about physics. In NATO we have conclusive evidence that only scum rises to the top and
    the talent of the scum is to be scum and nothing else.

    This laser system probably has the ability to shut down all aircraft activity within some radius without using SAMs.
    That is not a trivial achievement. SAMs take time to reach their target and can be messed around with via EM
    tricks. A high power laser beam cannot be defeated even if hypothetically a mirror surface is used. There is
    always some absorption just due to QM effects. And there is no way that stealth F-22s and F-35s ware going
    to drop their RAM coatings for mirror finishes.

    High power lasers can also take down air to surface missiles of any speed. So Russia is developing technology that
    defeats its own innovations such as Kinzhal. This is smart. Yankees and their corrupt procurement process are
    going to have a hard time catching up.
