The revelations were made by Sputnik News in an interview with Vladimir Mikheev who is a senior adviser with the secret team developing the weapons.
“The effect of such weapons may vary from ordinary interference that temporarily knocks out the enemy’s weapons systems, all the way to a complete radio-electronic destruction of electronic elements, motherboards, microchips and systems,” he said.
He added that all the research results were classified and the subject of UHF weapons was assigned a top secret classification.
However it’s thought to involve the development of missiles which can explode miles above a target sending down a powerful pulse onto cities below.
“All I can say is that the obtained know-how is now being used in the development of electromagnetic artillery shells, bombs and missiles, which carry a magnetic explosion generator,” he said.
“All leading world powers, including the US and China, are also working on this.”
The pulsed radiation generated by the UHF emitter developed as part of the Alabuga project is similar to that of a nuclear explosion, but without the radiation.
