…This terrifying footage shows what Russia is claiming is the world’s first weapon to use microwave energy ‘death-rays’ to target military drones.
And generals claim there is no other weapon like it in the world.
Russia is flexing its military muscles as tensions in Syria continue to increase, causing many to fear the very imminent threat of World War Three[…]
“This is a completely new type of weapon, which has no analogues in the country, and [we] are not afraid to say, in the world.”[…] it can aim “microwave pulses at powerful enemy targets with the aim of disabling their electronic equipment […] can be disabling enemy tactical drones directly over the battlefield […] at a distance of over one kilometre.”
Sadly, I feel the need to inform our comrades that if they’d watch anything other than their own propaganda, they’d know we have these weapons afield already:
If they were really clever, they would see that we already have airborne laser platforms, too. Initial field testing was conducted in a country you’re familiar with, on a truck with multiple occupants inside, just a few short years after OEF began.
Have fun cooking your hotdogs, Vlad, and let us know when you get to the 21st century.
