Video of the new Russian blinding weapon

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — TV channel “Star” has published a video test station visual optical interference “Filin.”

At night and at dusk, the complex neutralizes sights, range finders, night vision devices and anti-tank guided missile guidance systems at a distance of up to five kilometers.

First, the ship includes something like a powerful searchlight, after which it is transferred to the “jamming mode”, which can blind the enemy, provoke hallucinations in the soldiers of the enemy and incapacitate his equipment.

According to the channel, the system has already been installed on several ships of the Russian fleet.

Filin developed Rostec state corporation. He is able to blind the enemy at a distance of up to two kilometers, while the effect of the station’s action is temporary – later the vision is restored.

Earlier, British media found the “Owl” on the Russian frigate “Admiral Gorshkov”, when he headed the detachment of the Northern Fleet ships close to the base of the British Air Force.
