Krasuha-4 system can suppress cruise missile’s guidance systems
Ground tests expected to begin within months
Weapons will be mounted on jets and warships
Its Russian makers say it is a ‘fundamentally new electronic warfare system’ which can be mounted on ground-based as well as air- and sea-borne carriers.
However, it has refused to reveal how the system works
Experts claim a revolutionary new weapon that can jam enemy missile guidance systems and satellites is set to enter testing this year. An earlier version of the system, called Krasuha-4, is shown here.
It is described as ‘a fundamentally new electronic warfare system capable of suppressing cruise missile and other high-precision weaponry guidance systems and satellite radio-electronic equipment.’
‘The system will target the enemy’s deck-based, tactical, long-range and strategic aircraft, electronic means and suppress foreign military satellites’ radio-electronic equipment,,’ Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Group (KRET) Deputy CEO Yuri Mayevsky told Russian news agency TASS.
To comply with international weapons laws, the system will be mounted on ground-based, air-and seaborne carriers and not on satellites.
‘It will fully suppress communications, navigation and target location and the use of high-precision weapons,’ said adviser to the KRET first deputy CEO Vladimir Mikheyev.
‘The system will be used against cruise missiles and will suppress satellite-based radio location systems.
‘It will actually switch off enemy weapons.’
The system’s ground component will be tested soon, he claims.
‘Ground tests are now going on in workshops. ‘
