The cutting edge laser system’s characteristics still remain a top secret, despite it already having been deployed for military service. While some experts expect it to serve as an air-defence system, capable of downing both enemy jets and missiles, others suggest it could be used in electronic warfare, blinding sophisticated enemy systems.
The Russian Defence Ministry has published a video, featuring the deployment process and combat preparations for the Russian combat laser system “Peresvet”, which entered experimental combat service with the army on December 1. After undergoing a special briefing, soldiers, operating the “Peresvet”, now practice the timely execution of all the cutting edge system’s deployment stages.
