In China, a new type of weapon

Trying to explore the potential of non-lethal weapons, China has developed a new model of long-range weapons capable of causing "unbearable pain" to the target without lethal damage to the target, RIA Novosti reports citing the British edition IHS Jane's 360, specializing in military subjects.

The weapon, called "WB-1", is a device that emits electromagnetic waves in the millimeter wave range to destroy microwave radiation of a target from a distance of 80 meters. The use of additional power sources can increase the range of the installation to almost a kilometer. The principle of operation of such a weapon is based on the fact that when a beam hits a person, water molecules are heated under his skin, causing severe pain, the author of the material notes.

The portal's expert suggests that "WB-1 stun guns will likely be used on ships, which will help China defend its territorial claims in the East China and South China Seas without hijacking or destroying an enemy ship."

If the Chinese engineers manage to integrate the working version of "WB-1" into the control systems of ships, China may face criticism of the use of this type of weapon from neighboring states - the publication notes.
