Silent Hunter specifications:


The Silent Hunter is able to intercept an UAV with a wingspan below 2 meters flying at a speed below 60 meters per second (+200 kph) at ranges between 200 meters and 4,000 meters.

SRAD honoring the successful intercept

The Saudi Royal Air Defense honored one of its employees This is due to his interception of a suicide drone with the Chinese laser system Silent Hunter with very high efficiency!

the certification

it says :
The Command of the Air Defense Group extends its sincere thanks and appreciation to you for what you have done
From diligence, and dedication to perform the work entrusted to you with efficiency, competence and efforts
Prominent in addressing the hostile target "drone" date 6 march 2022 using the system "Silent Hunter" This successful response is an unprecedented achievement and the first interaction This system is a historical event at the level of the armed forces Wishing you continued success and God bless you.


KSA obtaining more after real combat success (9 marsh after 3 days)

many Saudi and military analyst in other Arabic military forum says:

it is not a single interception Rather, it has exceeded 12 successful interceptions so far!

but There is a dispute if 12 interceptions in same location or different events and locations across KSA land.

it is my first thread 8-)

Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz is said to be going ahead with strengthening defense relations with China, especially in the field of electronic warfare (EW) systems, and notably laser weapon systems

In addition, at this year's Saudi Defense Exhibition, a new light high-mobility laser weapon system was unveiled. It was installed on a military high-mobility chassis like the "Hummer", compared to the "Silent Hunter" on a van truck chassis. , the volume is further reduced, which indicates that its energy density has been further improved.

What is even more surprising is that, according to the Russian Satellite News Agency, it shot down not one drone, but 13..

LOL!! :omghaha:
"The mentally weakened Saudi Arabia, who was tortured by the Houthis, saw the "silent hunters" produced by China."


"It makes up for the weak shortcoming of the Saudi air defense force's weak defense and detection capabilities for low-altitude flying targets."
Who writes this stuff....? :sarcastic:

Weakened? The Houthis were destroyed and ransacked to the point where they are all together send back in time.. Go check where they live.. They exist in the 17th century now they got bombarded into the Stone ages literally.. They learned the hard way and realized all the revolution was a pipe dream..

If taking it hardcore is viewed positively then that is machoistic..

Turkish LASER Weapon was the first interception of a laser beam weapon in real combat situation in 2019 Libya ( 3 years ago )





Turkish LASER Weapon turned Chinese Wing Loong-II UCAV into crap of metal in Libya

SINGLE MODE LASER WEAPON TECHNOLOGY

Only USA and Turkiye ( China also working on single mode LASER since 2019 )

Many Countries develops Multi mode LASER
Multi mode LASER has large power but beam quality is poor
Single mode LASER has great beam quality


Turkish 20 kw single mode LASER Weapon test in 2018

Personally express doubts, like this author, he has been waiting to update the article, but in 2022 there is still no change.
A UAE-owned and operated Wing Loong II unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was reportedly shot down by a laser weapon mounted on a Turkish Otokar Cobra wheeled personnel carrier near the northern Libyan city of Misrata. The laser weapon was developed by Turkey primarily as a counter-drone platform with a secondary role in countering IEDs (improvised explosives).

Although images have appeared on Chinese television, there has been little independent confirmation of the incident. The GNA (Government of National Accord) issued a press statement that made no mention of the Turkish laser; "Our heroic forces on the southern axis of the Central Military District successfully shot down a missile-laden Wing Loong drone this morning, which the UAE is using In support of the war criminal Hafar [sic]...it attempted to attack the nearby civilian target city of Misrata."

If proven true, modern warfare has reached a milestone with the first recorded use of a laser weapon to shoot down an enemy aircraft, albeit unmanned in this case. Overt Defense will update this article as soon as confirmation is received.

Do you think Missile or LASER ? its a LASER Beam , but not a Missile

Turkiye used its own UCAV , LASER Weapon and Radar Electronic Warfare technologies in Libya ( only a few countries have this high technologies in the world )

-- Turkish LASER Weapon shoot down Chinese Wing Loong-II UCAV in Libya

-- Turkish TB-2 UCAVs changed the game in Libya ( destroyed many military hardware including Russian PANTSIR Air Defense Systems )

-- Turkish KORAL Radar Electronic Warfare System in Libya to match with even İtalian HORIZON class Destroyer

In fact, I haven't seen the news that the manufacturer and the user are promoting the use of lasers to shoot down UAVs, just like Saudi Arabia. Can you provide the source of the Turkish or Libyan official claim to have carried out this attack by LASER ?

The photos you gave do not confirm what shot down the UAV, as I said earlier, the author has been waiting for the exact news and is ready to update his article immediately. If you do have solid evidence, please provide it to him, after all, it has been almost 4 years since 2019.

Turkiye doesnt care about a authhor from a website



The photos confirm shot down the UCAV by LASER Weapon

and Turkiye had single moder LASER Weapon in 2019 .....

GOOD news, I wish they ask for TOT or co work with china and develop laser beam and extend it range and improve detection to small and fast target.
