'Completely new type of weapon': Russia tests ‘unrivaled’ new radio-electronic weapon
Russia has developed and successfully tested radio-electronic weapons systems unmatched anywhere in the world, RIA Novosti reports, citing the manufacturer.
"Real prototypes of such weapons have already been created and they have proven their efficiency,” a representative of Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Company (OPK), which is in charge of the production, told RIA Novosti.
The new technology falls under the somewhat loose term "weapons based on new physical principles." The grouping includes armaments that employ physical processes and phenomena not generally used in modern weapons. Laser and sonic weapons are among other examples of such technology.
According to the OPK representative, the brand-new Russian system is as yet unrivaled.
“This is a completely new type of weapon, which has no analogues in our country, and I daresay, in the world."
