Russian laser weapon shot down an Israeli drone over Syria during combat tests
DAMASCUS, (BM) – Russia is actively testing its latest weapons in Syria, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing news agency Aviapro.
After testing the Armata T-14 tank, Russia sent its Peresvet combat laser system to Syria, which successfully passed the tests by shooting down a reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle in the sky above the south western part of Syria.
“Beam weapons seem to have become the main character in science fiction. However, recently there was news that a Russian beam-beam weapon had shot down an Israeli drone. On May 27, Israeli military aircraft suddenly struck the Golan Heights in southwestern Syria. It turned out that on the same day, an Israeli reconnaissance drone went to the Syrian border for obserbation. The drone was shot down over Syrian territory without warning. The Israeli side suspected Russian weapons with beam particles”, Sina Military reported.
It should be clarified that at the end of May, information about flights of a large number of Israeli aircraft near the Syrian border did appear, while it was reported that, under unknown circumstances, the Israeli army reconnaissance UAV was actually lost. Nevertheless, to date, there are no official statements from the Russian Ministry of Defense about testing the Peresvet combat laser system in Syria.
