Russia is working on a military laser system

Moscow, Sep 22 (Calcutta Tube) Russia is working on a military laser system which would reportedly be able to disable the enemy’s information gathering missions and data processing systems, a top official said Wednesday.

‘Work on laser weapons is under way across the world, and that includes us,’ said Gen. Nikolai Makarov, the chief of Russia’s Armed Forces General Staff.

It was, however, ‘too soon yet’ to speak about the specifications of the laser system, he said.

According to reports, Russia has been developing an airborne laser – or flying laser – that can shoot down enemy missiles in flight.
