    this is probably a training base for the #Peresvet Laser system.

    Peresvet may actually be a nuclear-pump-laser, and its acknowledgement may have been indirectly confirmed back in 2012 in Russian scientific literature. It would make practical sense that a nuclear powered laser would also be a nuclear-pump-laser as well. It was confirmed the power was 1MW (like what I speculated) which leads me to believe that it is indeed Peresvet.

    In 2012, the source [1] reported that in the RFNC-VNIITF (Snezhinsk) a gas laser pumped by a nuclear reactor operating at the atomic xenon transition with a wavelength of 2.03 μm was created. The output energy of the laser pulse was 500 J at a peak power of 1.3 MW. This device is the most compact in terms of the volume of active gas medium used (specific laser radiation energy was 32 J / dm³)

    A 520 J pulsed gas laser (laser module) was created, pumped by fission products of uranium nuclei, operating at the atomic transition of xenon 5d [3/2] 1 -> 6p [3/2] 1 , with a wavelength of 2.03 mum. The experiments were carried out on the BARS-5 + RUN-2 complex (Fast aperiodic self-quenching reactor and Reactor neutron multiplier). The specific energy of laser radiation obtained in the experiments was ~ 32 J / dm 3 at an efficiency of ~ 3% (the ratio of the output energy of the laser pulse to the energy transferred to the gas medium by fission fragments).

    Some wild guesses here. But Im guessing one of the reasons why Peresvet's program got greenlighted is because the laser is boosted with other forms of electromagnetic radiation, including microwaves and gamma radiation, which might allow it to perform the duties of DEW and ECM all in one package. So theoretically speaking Peresvet may actually be both a Laser and a Maser.

    This is a likely scenario. In order to increase the effectiveness of a laser shot through the atmosphere, there has to be additional conditioning
    to "lubricate" the beam. So lasers of other wavelengths are fired before the main beam. I think that some sort of optimized laser for the
    heating of aerosols must be used. It could rapidly evapourate sulfate and even black carbon aerosols which act to dramatically attenuate any
    laser beam.

    There may even be a sort group effect construct. So various frequency lasers are fired at once and create a front which allows the beam to
    burrow farther through the atmosphere. I recall talk of such pre-conditioning before so people have been researching this for years.

    It is perfectly normal for modern HEAT rounds to use multiple charges to penetrate very heavy armour too...

    Automotive chassis nuclear reactor designs presented

    At the military-technical forum “Army-2019”, the research and design institute (NIKIET) named after N.A. Dollezhal presented projects of unique reactor installations, including on a car chassis. These are promising installations that, if implemented, will significantly expand the boundaries of peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

    Peresvet laser complex - Page 7 1561524982_94

    What installations are you talking about?

    We are talking about promising designs of reactor plants of relatively small nuclear power plants: ATGOR, Shelf, Vityaz and UNITERM.

    Earlier it was reported that such mobile nuclear reactors (auto nuclear power plants) can be used in areas with limited electric power resources - remote settlements. Mini-nuclear plants make it possible to reduce the cost of electricity, since the kilowatt-hours generated by a mobile reactor will cost about 1.5-1.7 times cheaper than the same kilowatt-hours produced by diesel-fueled diesel plants, which have to be brought in hundreds of km .

    The reactor is equipped on a car chassis - in a protected capsule. According to some reports, it is planned to use an autonomous cooling system.

    Today, NIKIET, which is part of Rosatom Corporation, acts as the chief designer of research reactors in the Russian Federation with a capacity of 100 MW (these are the SM-3, MIR, PIK units), the IBR-2 fast rector, and the MBIR multi-purpose fast reactor under construction.

    Perhaps you celebrate too soon. When Navalny and his Liberat hordes takes over Russia all these projects will be thrown to the garbage bin and Russia will be broken into a minimum of 100+ independent and democratic republics.

    Navalny and his ilk did not win anything in the last elections. He just claimed credit for the increased votes of all the "pro-Kremlin" parties. That is something
    only a pathetic loser would claim.

    Russia's problem is what is happening in Belorus. Russia needs to stage a colour revolution against the NATO bootlick Lukashenko ASAP.

    75% of Russia's seats lean conservative. Literally all eastern European countries lean conservative.

    https://www.rbth.com/defence/2015/07/23/russias_new_microwave_gun_to_target_drones_47953.html

    In regards to the 100 megawatt nuclear reactor as a power source. What kind of power is needed to destroy missiles? Does anyone have power sources on the Rtut-bm? Because the rtut can destroy artillery shells from reaching troops. I am just wondering if a nuclear reactor would give microwave weapons enough power to make cruise missiles explode to not touch troops or air defenses. I can sense a possible future weapon for example if an air defense is overwhelmed with cruise missiles or out of ammunition there would be a omni-directional microwave weapon that causes cruise missiles to explode from reaching the air defense and inside that umbrella (like the rtut-bm) air defenses can reload than shut the system off to fire again?
