Russia claims to have developed secret ‘superweapon’ capable of switching off foreign satellites and enemy weapons

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

 2A48869200000578-3151339-image-a-26_1436211952242Experts 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. ‘
