A new combat laser on the BAZ platform lit up in Russia


Scientific and Production Enterprise "Advent" from St. Petersburg has developed a new short-range supersonic chemical oxygen-iodine combat laser with a power of about 15-50 kW. The corresponding photo was published on the Web.


The complex uses the BAZ-6910 tractor as a platform. The main purpose of the combat device is functional impact on objects.

The operating temperature range of the laser is from minus 20 to plus 50 degrees Celsius, the range of combat action is up to 5 km, the time of continuous exposure to force radiation on the target is at least 5 seconds, the operating time of the device to replenish the stock of reagents is at least 100 seconds.

The complex for hitting air targets and ground targets using a chemical oxygen-iodine laser (KPVTs) can be used to attack any moving and stationary combat and special purpose targets.


The Russian armed forces are already equipped with the Peresvet complex of Russian laser weapons. For the first time on experimental combat duty, he took over in December 2018, and in May this year (according to the newspaper "Kommersant") the system was tested in Syria.

    new supersonic chemical oxygen-iodine combat laser short-range, the power of which is about 15-50 kW.

    Ummm ... I don't even know how to react to this combination.

      You won't surprise anyone with a simple combat laser. We have not yet given Trump an answer to the hydrosonic missile. Therefore, we are waiting for the hydrosound laser.

      And you don't need to react to it. Study the materiel to begin with.

      Cyril (Cyril),
      The working medium of this laser is a mixture of substances (chemical elements) in a gaseous state. The mixture is in motion, and a chemical reaction occurs between the components of the mixture. In the general case, to obtain high radiation energies, the speed of the working mixture should be about 1 M. In this case, the speed of the working fluid even exceeds the speed of 1 M.

        That is, in the case of this particular working fluid, the reaction is not even chemical, but simply oxygen atoms transfer energy to iodine atoms, and they, in turn, re-emit it.

          It seems to me (this is without mockery) that there is a phenomenon of "unsettled terminology." A difficult thing, by the way, and unpleasant. In this case, it is simply not clear what to attach the super- prefix to. Not to the emission of photons.
          If to the speed of the working fluid, then completely. Simply, there is no generally understood designation of the elements of the process.
          Next to the topic.)) I remember, as in Young Technique, there was a good article for schoolchildren on how to build a chemical laser. Working fluid - tinted alcohol. At that time, I blinded the pumping system for the guys, and I wanted to rivet the pump on the IFK120 lamp. I remember that yes, the rate of replacement of the "discharged" working fluid greatly influenced.

            It also seems to me that a "gas-dynamic laser with a supersonic flow velocity" would be more correct, but it is not for me to argue with the authors of scientific articles on this topic, who often use the term "supersonic laser".

    The range of 5 km is, of course, not enough, but for a start this is enough, the main thing is to master the complex, and then you need to systematically increase and improve its characteristics, increase the laser power and, accordingly, the range doubled, and the time is 100 seconds. until the next application, it is still too much, to keep within 30 seconds, that would be ideal.

      Range of 5 km, this is certainly not enough

      The close line of defense is akin to cannon complexes. Quite normal.

      As I understand from the description, 100 seconds is not the time between "shots". There is practically no break between "shots". The time of 100 seconds is the time of consumption of the working fluid stock from the operational storage tanks of gaseous iodine and singlet oxygen (consumption - 300 grams per second). The containers are enough for 100 seconds of total radiation. If you want - spend 5 seconds (20 "shots"), if you want - 10 seconds, well, any intermediate values.
      In general, within 100 seconds - do not deny yourself anything (except for the limitation "the time of continuous radiation is not more than 30 seconds", apparently from overheating). But, when the tanks are empty, they must be filled from a singlet oxygen generator and a gaseous iodine generator. There is no time to fill these containers, apparently, this performance characteristics is not for public access.

        As for the power of the laser, the ability to influence moving targets, the effects of the atmosphere, the effectiveness of the defeat - all unanswered questions, it seems that this is yet another "railgun" - a breakthrough of money into a black hole ... , of course, you can burn such plastics, especially slow quadcopters, but if it is thicker and not a quadcopter in motion, a long scar will remain, and the ammunition will still destroy the expensive unit of "Engineer Garin" ... While some questions without specific answers ...

          Yes, I do not assess the effectiveness of laser weapons in general.
          I'm trying to figure out the technical characteristics of this particular sample.
          Probably, 5 km, just, and given taking into account real weather conditions. So, a powerful laser beam is self-focusing and in conditions of good transparency of the atmosphere, its power does not strongly decrease with distance.
          But the Americans also react hysterically to such developments, they themselves are trying to do something. Maybe there will be some kind of useful exhaust from this event. We were in the lead on this subject under the USSR and now, it seems, we are not lagging behind ... These developments will be needed in the future in any case. Even in space, extinguish satellites or deal with debris.

            Boriz, I will help you understand the comparison of a chemical laser with a solid-state laser. Compare the size of the American 150kv and the Russian one.
