Russia develops destructor beam weapons system: Report

IANS 

Moscow, Oct 14 (IANS/Sputnik) The destructor beam of science fiction may finally be a reality with developing a radio-electronic weapons system that disables on-board equipment on aerial targets, media reported.

Harnessing physical principles -- beam, wave and kinetic energy, the yet unrivalled weapons system was unveiled at the closed Russian Defence Ministry exhibition on the sidelines of the Army-2016 forum last month, Russia's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation said.

"Real models of these weapons have been already developed and have proved their effectiveness. This is a completely new type of weapon that has no equal either in this country or in the world," a UIMC spokesperson told Russian news agency RIA Novosti on Thursday.

The UIMC spokesperson explained that the new weapons system uses a directed energy beam to disable 'on board equipment' on aerial targets to neutralise them.

"It has an indirect physical impact on air-borne equipment of planes and UAVs, and neutralises high-precision weapons," he added.
