 Russia disclosed that domestic electromagnetic gun can destroy aircraft within 10 km


It is reported that the weapon can use electromagnetic pulse to shoot down aircraft or UAVs in the air.

Russia has been testing electromagnetic pulse weapons since 2015, the latest of which was in the spring of this year. At present, the average range of air targets is 7 to 8 kilometers, and the maximum range can be up to 10 kilometers, the report quoted sources as saying.

The report said that an electromagnetic pulse lasting only one second and hit the target at the speed of light. Once an aircraft within 10 kilometers is hit, the equipment on board will be destroyed.

In the experiment, EMP weapon was used to destroy many targets on the ground, and also successfully destroyed UAVs in the air. However, the disadvantage of this kind of weapon is that it consumes a lot of energy, which makes it difficult to produce a mobile EMP weapon system in a short time.

The report said that there are obvious differences between EMP weapons and EW weapons. Although EW weapons can carry out electronic jamming within a range of hundreds of kilometers, they are much less powerful and cannot destroy enemy equipment, while EMP weapons can physically destroy enemy equipment.
