In the US, Russian hallucinogenic weapons are considered very dangerous.

In the US, they are confident in the effectiveness of Russian hallucinogenic weapons.

As acknowledged by American experts, in Russia there may be a hallucinogenic weapon. When using it, the efficiency can be quite high. Experts are referring to the 5P-42 Filin Visual Optical Station. According to the developers, they can blind the enemy, causing temporary visual impairment. This message was published in the publication "LiveScience".

The effect of "Filina" is based on the modulation of light radiation, at which low-frequency fluctuations of brightness occur. According to psychologists at New York University and Johns Hopkins University, the flickering of light radiation, in fact, can disrupt human vision. It may cause hallucinations and residual images. However, to obtain such an effect, a very bright light is needed, and a person must suffer from heightened sensitivity to light.

Sensitivity to light, which can cause unusual reactions in the brain, is estimated by scientists to have less than one percent of people. At the same time, the researchers emphasize that accurate data on the effect of Russian weapons are not known.

Previously, there was already a message that the "Filin" was tested on volunteers, whose task was aimed shooting from small arms. As follows from the received, but not verified information, 20 percent of the subjects complained about a “spot of light floating before their eyes”. Another percent 45 experienced nausea and dizziness, some disorientation in space.

As follows from the available information, the station "Filin" installed on the frigates "Admiral Gorshkov" and "Admiral Kasatonov." Currently undergoing factory testing. It is possible that the equipment will be installed on two more ships that are being built at the Severnaya Verf plant, while the use of this complex is also possible on the means of aviation.
