The Russian Defense Ministry Society Committee members Coro Piano, told local media that Vice Minister Borisov is carried by military aircraft of a space-based 30000mw Laser weapons, Russian troops had tested such weapons. For example, Russian Il-76 transport aircraft carrying the high power lasers, through laser irradiation to attack enemy fighters and weapons control of various sensors and military aircraft, military satellites and ground, water technology and equipment of electron optics system and make it lose detection and guidance work ability.Yisi C said that the use of transport vehicles or armored vehicles to carry laser weapons can also be used to deal with the uav. At present, the UAV technology develops very fast, the future is expected to be used as military aircraft with high operation speed and maneuverability. And air defense missiles are not suitable to attack small UAVs, with transport vehicles or armored vehicles carrying a laser weapon attack can work.
Is It Easy for Russia Deploy Laser Weapon?

Russian Deputy Defense Minister Borisov recently in the western Russian city of Sarov announced that the Russian military has tested the burning laser weapon prototype. In this regard, the Russian military expert explain that Russian forces the use of laser weapons have a variety of options, but will be used to combat the need to wait for a long time.
Russia, President of the Institute of political research believe that the laser weapon will be applied in the army. According to him, the Russian army has tested a number of 100mw Laser weapons. Such as Russian mechanized infantry had intended to equipped with a laser transmitter which is used to damage the enemy soldiers vision; an air defense forces had used laser weapon attack cruise missiles and other flying at low altitude target; laser weapon can destroy ground equipment of optical detection, targeting, and communications device. But the test also found that this type of laser weapon is very high, the problem is difficult to solve the problem of continuous power supply.

Advantages of laser weapon
The Russian missile and Artillery Academy of science academician Schiff Keefer believes that 200mw Green Laser weapons attack is especially suitable for high-speed flight target. Because the laser propagation speed is very fast, in general, use a laser weapon attack common high-speed flying object need not calculate the flight track of the target, as long as the measured flying object's exact location coordinates, you can immediately hit.SIV Cove also pointed out that the laser weapon used in combat is still facing many problems.
There are mainly two kinds of laser weapon attacks, one of which is with high intensity short laser pulse to target local damage. However, it is necessary to achieve the effect of this attack cost a lot of power and other issues. In addition, generation of short laser pulses will produce high heat, may make the laser generator self destruct.
