Recently, there have been rumors of Russian weapons that cause nausea and may temporarily render them blind. Today these rumors have been confirmed.

Last month, the media reported on a non-lethal Russian weapon called the 5P-42 "Filin". It was about the Navy equipping its ships with light, which makes people feel sick.

Now there are new details about this weapon. Radio Sputnik confirmed that the Navy is developing a new light-based non-lethal optical interference system, citing a retired colonel who said it caused "hallucinatory symptoms." According to the weapon's developer, it is assumed that it could provide a "significant tactical advantage" to the Russian special forces.

According to Sputnik, the "Owl" is capable of emitting powerful flashes of light aimed at incapacitating enemy equipment. It has also been noted that this system can cause nausea and disorientation.

Last week, Defense Ministry-owned Zvezda TV showed footage of a test launch of the 5P-42 system. According to Sputnik, the system can blind night vision equipment and other optical equipment within a five-kilometer radius, as well as blind or disorient enemy infantry within a two-kilometer radius.

Representatives from Ruselectronics, a weapons company, told Sputnik that engineers are working on modifications and upgrades to the range of the existing system. According to the weapons developer, the system does not permanently deprive eyesight, but it reduces the effectiveness of shooting by 300-500%, and also works more as a means of protection against weapons that can cause some hallucinatory symptoms.

A company representative noted that a "weaker" version of the system can be used in the civilian market - for example, by large companies to protect premises.

Considering all of the above, it is not yet clear how seriously all this information should be taken, because everything that is known about the "Filin" was reported by state sources.
