In Russia showed a combat laser to combat drones


A unique complex for countering UAVs called Rat was presented by the Ruselectronics holding, which is part of Rostec. The system, which has no analogues in the world, was demonstrated by the developer within the framework of the Army-2020 forum.


The domestic anti-drones tool is a special armored vehicle equipped with surveillance and search devices that allow control and observation even in zero visibility conditions.

Several technical solutions are used to detect and neutralize enemy UAVs. In particular, the car is equipped with a radar, a complex for automatic recognition and suppression of telecommunication channels, a directional microwave suppression system, and even a laser installation for the targeted destruction of drones.


The complex is controlled by a central console with several displays located inside the armored car. Here, the received data is automatically processed, after which the operator is provided with optimal options for countering one or a group of detected UAVs. For example, the "Rat" can block communication and satellite navigation channels for "intruders" or even eliminate the drone using a targeted laser destruction system.

The developers claim that the new complex is capable of detecting enemy UAVs at a distance of 3,5 km. At the same time, the radius of suppression of communication channels and satellite navigation reaches 2,5 km.

    Complex for small reconnaissance UAVs (up to 3 km) ..... Conclusion, weak in range, suitable for toys in the civilian sector to remove from security objects, and booking is unnecessary. For military use, a more versatile and larger radius and height of action is needed, especially against loitering ammunition and other UAVs and with MANPADS, to suppress heavier UAVs. Conclusion: the war needs a different one, this sample, "unparalleled" from children's toys ...

      You are wrong here. Now the set of all penguins from the "exclusive nation" includes miniature helicopter-type drones, small drones are going to be equipped with armored equipment and in size it will not exceed civilian versions. The range of their application will also be small. So the use of the "Rat" complex will be found both in the immediate rear (sea gadgets or "Delta" when committing dirty tricks will be very surprised), and on the front line.

        For small and ultra-small drones for military use, small in mass means of destruction are also needed everywhere, because they will be used everywhere. This sample is incomparably massive and will not be frequent in the ranks of the Armed Forces, which means that we need a portable miniaturization of the means of destruction of such mini drones in manual execution ... Therefore, this sample, as different and cumbersome, is not suitable for such a task either ...

          This complex is installed on an armored chassis, which already indicates its possible appearance in the combat zone. And you forgot that this is still a complex consisting of several different developments combined to achieve one goal (the car is equipped with a radar, a complex for automatic recognition and suppression of telecommunication channels, a directed microwave suppression system and even a laser installation for the targeted destruction of drones). There is already a manual weapon to destroy drones - this is the Pishchal-PRO anti-UAV complex, or simply an anti-drone gun. In general, we will find where and how to apply this complex. I hope it will develop further, which means that the characteristics will improve.

            Practice is the best judge ... What will evolve is that all weapons should be constantly improved. I hope that this sample will grow from children's pants into a big and formidable uncle ...
