Sorry Vlad, but you ain't fooling anyone with that bullshiat. We can watch drones murdering Russian troops via satellite.
We know you ain't got nothing. But sure, double down on the lies. You only look even more pathetic.

Are these new laser weapons compatible with Ukrainian tractors?

"If Peresvet blinds, then the new generation of laser weapons lead to the physical destruction of the target - thermal destruction, they burn up," Borisov told Russian state television.

I think they hit subby's brain with one of those microwave weapons when subby was writing the headline.

The drones are from Canada. You wouldn't know them.

It doesn't say they're hitting Ukrainian drones.

Russia also has warp drives and photon torpedos, but they can't show anybody because it's a secret.

If only that order of lasers from Wish.com would ship faster... it's been sitting on "Arrived at Moskva Postal Office" for two weeks! Putin had it "Ship to store" because the Wish.com associated market is just a block away from the Kremlin.

Wish.com listing said they were 1000MW lasers, and the control system even includes 2TB flash drives built in! It's going to be glorious!

It is really some Russian soldier standing out there with a laser pointer trying to blind the drone.
 
2022-05-18 11:27:17 AM  
He's just so tiresome and boring at this point.
It's getting even worse than hearing about how Iran is 2 weeks away from a nuke.

Just SHUT THE fark UP VLAD. You ain't got shiat, and we all know it. Just farking die already. No one cares. You and your country are worthless, dickless, choads.

Throwing some Kinder Eggs up in the air and having Vasily shoot them with a shotgun isn't really taking out 'drones' guys...

did the russians steal the technology from MTG's favorite boogey man?  are they using it to cause wildfires?

I'm pew-pew-pewing Ukrainian lingerie models.  It's all very hush hush.

Drones have a major flaw and you don't need lasers to defend against them.  Electron fencing, which we figured out 70 years ago and is pretty easy to deploy.  Would make drones almost useless

Funny thing, a few years before the war (and a few months before the pandemic), I found myself talking to a group of Russians at a sci-fi convention in Europe, and one of them mentioned how pathetically slow the Russian postal system is.  I can't remember all the details of what she was trying to ship internationally, but it spent several weeks crawling through the Russian postal system, and once it reached the border and was transferred to an international carrier, it reached its destination in North America within three days.

/despite what some people choose to believe, the U.S. Postal Service is one of the fastest and most efficient postal services in the world

OK Vlad, go ahead and show NATO what all you got.

FTFA: "Asked if such weapons were being used in Ukraine, Borisov said: "Yes. The first prototypes are already being used there." He said the weapon was called "Zadira"."

So the big fierce ones they speak of at first are apparently not deployable. The fact that what is deployed are prototypes, doesn't strike fear in me. Reason being you are talking about something without full capability, full reliability, and questionable accuracy outside of perfect test conditions. With the lack of NCOs or any personnel trained on the system combined with the complexity of prototype systems, they will need private sector contractors to operate them. Contractors not all too thrilled to be so close to the front.

With the state of Russian corruption, are the prototypes even as effective as Putin thinks they are?

Lasers just sound futuristic and scary, but all they are basically doing is being a low cost replacement for more expensive interceptors. Also kind of like Nazi Germany with their jet airplanes and missile technology, their conventional forces and economy are in too much disarray to matter. The allies had too many prop fighters for the jets to matter. I feel it is the same here. Ukraine has more drones than Russia has anti-drone laser systems.

The critics of the USPS are like the critics of the Democrats, they compare them against a fictional perfection rather than the alternative.

Is best laser system is designed by russia's Canadian babooshka.

You no am to be knowing her.

Need a Saber to rattle it Vladdie.
 
2022-05-18 1:00:01 PM  
Noone has seen it? I'd think that the billowing clouds of black smoke from Russian coal-powered laser guns would be visible far and wide.

Did one of these lasers take out the missing word in the headline?
 
2022-05-18 1:22:49 PM  
Wow so talking about another "secret" weapon, that will scare em Vlad. I am sure they are crapping their pants, now all they need is a CGI video like they have for all their wonder weapons.
 
2022-05-18 1:38:14 PM  
Almost nothing is publicly known about Zadira but in 2017 Russian media said Russia's state nuclear corporation, Rosatom, helped develop it as part of a programme to create weapons-based new physical principles.

Ask Trofim Lysenko how that turned out.

And lasers powerful enough to burn up a target 5 km away need a Real Skookum power source.  You don't just carry one of those around in the back of your half-ton pickup truck, and yet nobody's seen anything!
