The Russian Navy reportedly has a new weapon which can disrupt the eyesight of targets as well as make them hallucinate and inhale.
The weapon fires a beam similar to a strobe light which has an effect on the goal’s eyesight, which makes it more difficult for them to aim at nighttime.
During testing, volunteers reportedly used rifles and guns to shoot goals that were protected by the weapon.
The volunteers reported having difficulty aiming because they could not see.
About half of the volunteers said they felt dizzy, nauseous and disoriented.
About 20 percent of these volunteers reported experiencing hallucinations.
The weapon, called the Filin, has reportedly been set up on the Admiral Gorshkov and Admiral Kasatonov, two Russian warships.
The weapon is expected to be set up on more ships which are now being built.
The weapon was developed by Ruselectornics, a Russian state-owned developer of electronics and other technologies.
