 Prediction of the development trend of Russian weapon depots in the next 30 years: laser technology or focus

Russian military expert Alexei leonkov, editor of the magazine the armory of the motherland, described how Russian military arsenals will be improved in the next 30 years, the Russian satellite news agency reported on January 1. He talked about hypersonic missiles, laser drones, medical robots, etc.

The expert said that one of the current trends in Russian defense construction is to acquire and master hypersonic guidance technology. At present, Russia has only a few strategic nuclear power systems operating with this technology, namely, hypersonic system dagger and anti-ship missile zircon.

In the future, this technology will be improved and applied to the field of air defense, and it is likely that there will be air-to-air or air-to-air missiles using this technology, leonkov said

Citing leonkovs view, the report points out that the next direction of Russian weapons development is to improve laser technology. Russia has the peleswaite combat laser transmitter, which is only the first model. In the future, relevant improvements will be carried out, including reducing the size, installing more compact power devices, increasing signal power and launching multi-channel systems and various photoelectric reconnaissance and target indication systems, he said

The next stage of weapon perfection will also be the development of robotic systems and land, sea and air drones, which will not only perform reconnaissance tasks, but also realize the integration of surveillance and combat, leonkov said. When it comes to the air field, it will complete the combination of aircraft + several UAVs. No one has the chance to play the role of reconnaissance, target indication and the first strike.

When it comes to the development of land-based UAV Systems, leonkov said that he will improve the fire support system and logistics system related to medical services and the supply of ammunition to the front of combat operations.

In response to President Trumps official announcement of the establishment of a space force at the signing ceremony of the military budget recently, leonkov believed that the U.S. investment in the militarization of space would not exclude a system that would normally play the role of supervisor and destroyer once the combat operations began.

The maritime system will be developed in the field of reconnaissance and detection of submarines and mine arrangement. Leonkov believes that the Russian navy is expected to produce a new generation of submarines and modernize the Marine Corps.

There will be Russias 5th generation nuclear submarine, which is likely to be a multi-purpose submarine, which will take on tasks such as fighting surface and underwater complexes, and be able to strike the imaginary enemys land military and civilian infrastructure targets, he said

When it comes to land-based technical equipment, leonkov predicts that unmanned combat module will eventually replace manned module not only in light armored equipment. Everything you do on Amata could be converted to main battle tanks, he said T-14 Amata tank is the only postwar third generation tank in the world. The unmanned driving module is helpful to reduce the number of crew and the loss of personnel.

Leonkov believes that in the field of aviation, the fifth generation of fighters will gradually replace the fourth generation of fighters, and the sixth generation of fighters will be developed, which is likely to be unmanned and able to fly at hypersonic speed.

At present, Russia is producing the 5th generation fighter su-57, the report said. Earlier, Sergei chemezov, President of Russias State Technology Corporation, said that the large-scale supply of su-57 fighters to the Russian air force would begin in 2020. Sergei hohlov, director of Russias National Aeronautical System Science Research Institute, also said in an interview with satellite news agency that Russia is developing the 6th generation fighter.

Leonkov is not optimistic about the development prospect of more novel weapons such as electromagnetic gun and mini UAV. UAV swarms, which are a lot of small aircraft flying and doing something, are something of a fantasy, he said. The UAV group may not be able to resist electromagnetic radiation.

Leonkov added: the electromagnetic gun has a limitation. Because of their characteristics, they cannot shoot like ballistic weapons. For short distance, the electromagnetic gun is more expensive than the tail type sub caliber armor piercing projectile which flies to the target at the speed of 2 kilometers per second. Its not a good option for such a short distance in terms of price / performance.
