Samples of Russian electromagnetic weapons are tested at test sites, TASS reported citing the concern “Radioelectronic Technologies” (KRET). As adviser to the first deputy general director of the KRET, Vladimir Mikheev, microwave guns “exist and are very effective”.
According to Mikheev, “the tests are carried out constantly in the laboratory and on test sites.” In addition, work is underway to create systems of protection against such weapons. It is planned to equip Russian unmanned aircraft of the sixth generation with microwave guns. In the future, weapons can completely burn the enemy’s electronics.
