Russian combat lasers can destroy hostile targets - Defense Ministry
MOSCOW. March 12 (Interfax-AVN) - Combat laser weapons capable of disarming enemy capabilities and destroying hostile targets were supplied to the Russian army last year, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov told the ministry's newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda in an interview.
"Our nuclear scientists have learned how to concentrate energy required for destroying relevant enemy weapons instantly, in a split second," Borisov said.
"Laser weapons capable of disarming capabilities of the potential enemy and destroying every target of the laser beam were commissioned last year," he said.
"I think the dynamics of achievements, especially in the field of weapons based on new physical principles, has gained pace," Borisov said.
