Laser cannon

According to the Russian MoD, the Peresvet laser cannon – which the US called “störend” – has been in service since 2019.

Most details about the deadly laser cannon remain a secret.

jedoch, military experts think it performs the same tasks as defense missiles or air defenses.

It’s said to work perfectly in good weather but bad weather could affect the passage of the laser.

Hypersonic missiles

Russia is working on hypersonic missiles and claimed it tested one successfully last year.

Hypersonic missiles can travel over five times the speed of sound and lots of other countries are working on the super fast and destructive military tech.

jedoch, Putin has said his Zircon cruise missile will be capable of traveling at nine times the speed of sound over a range of 620 Meilen.

The hypersonic missile is intended to arm boats and submarines.

It could enter service this year.
