The Peresvet laser system has been deployed by the Russian Ministry of Defence, as shown in footage shot in an undisclosed location and released on Tuesday.

The system was announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin during his annual address to the Federal Assembly in March.

Information on the Peresvet complex is scarce, but it is reportedly an anti-air and missile defence system. Military units have reportedly undergone special training to deploy the weapon.
