Deputy Prime Minister Borisov:
In addition to the usual weapons, weapons systems based on new physical principles are on their way now. This is primarily a laser weapon. This is an electromagnetic broadband weapon that will replace it in the next decade.
This is no longer exotic, this is reality. Today, the Peresvet complex is in service, it is already being serially supplied to the troops. It can blind all enemy satellite reconnaissance systems in orbits up to 1500 kilometers, incapacitating them during the flight due to the use of laser radiation.
But this is today, or maybe even already yesterday. Today, our physicists have developed and are practically mass-producing laser systems of an order of magnitude greater power, which allow thermal damage to be carried out. Yesterday they demonstrated how, at a distance of 5 kilometers, within five seconds, an unmanned aerial vehicle was simply burned and ceased to exist.
Weapon systems are on the way, which will determine the combat capability of our armed forces in the future.
