The E/Marat, whose name signifies "power" in Arabic, is a directional short range electromagnetic pulse transmitter device. The first versions of this weapon, known as Generation-1, consisted of an omni-directional E/M pulse emitter with a radial effect. However, those versions had defects such as a reduced range and the indiscriminate effect of the pulse on everything that surrounded it, including the E/Marat carrier, seeing it achieve scarce success in combat. This new version has a parabolic deflector, which allows focusing of the pulse to select more specific targets. Being a directional weapon, the current E/Marat possesses a more limited range of action, especially when compared to other area saturation E/M weapons. However, it has more range than the previous Generation-1, and also allows more accurate target discrimination, reducing collateral damage. The new version keeps and improves the basic philosophy of the E/Marat as close quarters battle weapon, quite useful to equal the imbalance in confrontations between light forces with a low technological profile and highly modernized units.
