Russia: We Have Bigger Bombs & Laser Canons Than You Do!

The pistol contains pyrotechnic flash bulb which generates initial impulse.

Hello,

I have come across this article in several forms in the last few days. I get a chuckle out of it when I see it. In Russia you always have to build something better or first. It seems to be a Russian trait. It is a trait that I saw all my life in the USA & a trait that is very strong in Russia. I did an article months ago about the “Father Of All Bombs” it is a Russian bomb that is more powerful than the “Mother Of All Bombs” that the USA built. Like I said this is an important trait that Russians have……… (Link)

MOSCOW (RIA Novosti) – Russia started developing tactical laser weapons before the United States and has several prototypes of high-precision combat chemical lasers in its arsenal, a defense industry source said on Tuesday.

The Boeing Company said recently it had test-fired a high-energy chemical laser fitted aboard a C-130H aircraft for the first time. The successful ground tests, “a key milestone for the Advanced Tactical Laser Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration program,” took place on May 13 at the Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico.

Commenting on the announcement, the Russian expert said: “We tested a similar system back in 1972. Even then our ‘laser cannon was capable of hitting targets with high precision.”
“We have moved far ahead since then, and the U.S. has to keep pace with our research and development,” he added.

This is something that the USA & Russia have in common, they always want to be the best. That is another reason why I like Russia.

  1. I’ve heard these kinds of remarks for years. When the Russians fail to do something they do not often mention the work, but when they say they have done something, it is wise not to dismiss the claim because there is usually truth behind it. This is to be respected. I like this LASER pistol very much. It’s quite an ingenious weapon. That is, what other LASER pistol is there, where one can go to the market and buy powerpacks for it? A pity flashbulbs are no longer available, today (decades later) this would make an interesting hobby project. OK so what’s the spectra of flashbulbs? haha I have never bothered to check it out! What might the crystal be, Ruby? Were the flashbulbs a special mix to emphasize pump spectrum? There’s a document behind it there.. nice!
