(Copybook) This week's Army-2015 military conference, held at Patriot Park in Kubinka, is set to witness the unveiling of a range of military technology and equipment, including the Russian military's super-high-frequency gun, said to be capable of disabling warheads and drones. Constructed by the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC), the equipment has an impact range of ten kilometres and has informally been named the 'microwave gun'.
The system, which was developed with the specific defensive needs of Russia's Defense Ministry in mind, also has a 360 degree defense perimeter when mounted on a specially designed platform. This allows it to be effective to its maximum range in all directions. A demonstration of the equipment in action was scheduled for the closed portion of the military conference. Also expected to be on display at the 2015 expo was Russia's most recent military aircraft, the YAK-130.
