The first experimental results of the observation of superradiance from a single subnanosecond electron bunch are presented. Superradiance was associated with different varieties of stimulated emission (bremstruhlung, cyclotron, Cherenkov, etc). Unique megawatt power level microwave pulses of short duration (0.3-0.5 ns) have been obtained.
