"Sanguine": at the height of
The development of laser weapons in the NGO "Astrophysics" was a Stakhanovite pace, and in 1983 was put into service SLK "sanguine." Its main difference from the "Stiletto" lay in the fact that the fighting was aimed a laser at the target without the use of large mirrors. Simplification of the optical system had a positive effect on the killing power of weapons. But the most important improvement was the increased mobility of the laser in the vertical plane. "Sanguine" was intended to defeat electro-optical systems, aerial targets.
Laser system, "Sanguinius" mounted on the chassis of a self-propelled anti-aircraft installation "Shilka". In addition to combat laser turret mounted a low-power probe laser and receiver pointing system, the locking of the probe beam reflected from the glaring object.
Three years after the "sanguine" arsenal of the Soviet army added to the ship's laser complex "Aquilon" with the principle of action, similar to terrestrial SLK. Sea basing is an important advantage over ground: Energy System warship can provide significantly more power to the pump laser. So, you can increase capacity and rate of gun. The complex of "Aquilon" intended to defeat electro-optical systems, the coast guard of the enemy.
