PEW PEW PEW!
"...A video shows the 30kW laser cannon being operated by a hand-held controller not dissimilar to that found on an X-Box or PlayStation gaming console.
It shows the laser cannon targeting and blowing up remote control boats and airborne drones with an invisible light beam.
The cannon took the US Navy the best part of 10 years to develop at a cost of close to US$40 million..."
Eagerly awaiting news of its first operational use. Some of the other video taken during trial looked impressive- burning the outboard motor off an IRB. I guess something made to track a missile should have no trouble popping somali heads!
