Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said that Russia is developing the next generation of weapons - hypersonic missiles, laser and electromagnetic weapons. New types of weapons will use fundamentally different materials and control systems.
According to Borisov, the Russian army is on the verge of a scientific and technical breakthrough. This is facilitated by the interaction between the military and scientists transferred to a new level.
Similar developments are underway in the United States and China. So in 2010, the military corporation Raytheon demonstrated a laser installation that hit several UAVs, and four years later, the US Navy made a series of laser "firing" in the Persian Gulf.
In turn, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed a video of the combat firing of the TOR air defense missile system in winter conditions, striking targets with high efficiency.
