Developed by United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation, Russia’s latest ultra high-tech piece of equipment, dubbed the “microwave gun”, has the ability to deactivate drones and warheads.
The super-high-frequency gun, which has an impact range of around 10 kilometers or just over six miles, was set to be demonstrated during the Russian Defense Ministry-organized international event known as Army-2015, which incidentally is happening right now through Thursday.
“The new system is equipped with a high-power relativistic generator and reflector antenna, management and control system, and a transmission system which is fixed on the chassis of BUK surface-to-air missile systems,” a UIMC representative explained. “When mounted on a special platform, the ‘microwave gun’ is capable of ensuring perimeter defense at 360 degrees.”
