Description

The1K17 Szhatieis a self-propelledlaservehicle of Russian origin. The platform uses aMSTA-Schassis with a battery of laser projectors mounted in the turret. It was developed by theSoviet Unionin order to disable the optical-electronic equipment of enemy missiles, ground and aerial vehicles.

The "tank" used an intense laser beam to disable the optical-electronic equipment of the enemy vehicles. This was created by focusing light through 30 kg of artificial rubies which made the whole system very expensive to produce. The energy to power the laser was provided by a generator and an auxiliary battery system. The lenses themselves were able to operate in different environments by moving metal caps closer to protect the lens. It was also equipped with a 12.7mmNSV machine gunto defend itself against attacks by infantry and air.
