Russia’s New Electromagnetic Missile to Turn Enemy Weapons Into ‘Scrap Metal’

SputnikNews.com reports: “Russia is developing radio-electronic weapons, which use a powerful UHF impulse capable of destroying all electronic equipment miles away, a senior advisor to the deputy head of Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET) told Sputnik.

Earlier, media reports said that Russia’s defense industry had come up with the Alabuga, a new electro-magnetic missile, which uses a powerful UHF emitter to disable all enemy electronics within a radius of 3.5 kilometers (2.3 miles), turning it into ‘a heap of scrap metal.’

In an interview with Sputnik, Vladimir Mikheev, a senior adviser to KRET’s chief, said that the Alabuga stands for a whole series of scientific research in the development of the radio-electronic weapons of the future.

‘The effect of such weapons may vary from ordinary interference that temporarily knocks out the enemy’s weapons systems, all the way to a complete radio-electronic destruction of electronic elements, motherboards, microchips and systems,’ Mikheev explained.

He added that all the research results were classified and the subject of UHF weapons was assigned a top secret classification…”
