British Tabloid: Putin's Scientists have Lasers... Run for the Hills
Friday, 23 June 2017


"Vladimir Putin's scientists have developed technology capable of zapping enemy drones by laser while also remotely recharging friendly Russian unmanned flyers in the sky" reports British tabloid Express, who apparently associates the Russian president with Austin Power's villain.

 The technology was presented at an innovation exhibition this week, but pictures were not permitted, it was reported.

Researcher Grigory Filimonov said "highly efficient fibre lasers" are used which permit remote recharging. "It allows recharging friendly - and shooting down alien - drones," he said.

The drone-zapping technology was developed by specialists from the Institute of Atmospheric Optics, part of the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

It was unveiled at the R&D and Innovation Exhibition, part of the Technoprom-2017 international forum, taking place in Novosibirsk.

The exhibition's theme was the diversification of the Russian defence industry.


What happened to the good old days when the British were actually decent at propaganda?
