    Lasers to be deployed on US Fighter and Bombers.

    Taken from today's NYPost.com:

    Any bets we could shoot down any NoKor Ballistic missile headed for CONUS if we had to? This development might rival the recoiless rifle and guided munitions as a game changer on the battlefield. I wonder if they'll put these things on the AC-130 Spookies. That plane would be a Royal Bitch to deal with if they did. :up:

    I sense SAM's with reflective surfaces coming in the future.

    Every kindergarten in America needs to be patrolled by law enforcement packing tactical lasers. Because the only thing protecting you from a bad guy with tactical lasers is a good guy with tactical lasers.

    Along with rotation to dissipate the energy. I wonder if they finally packed a 100kw laser into a light enough and small enough housing-

    I wonder if they tested it on a house full of popcorn?

    No real genius under 30 will get the reference!

    They've probably found a way to power the little beasty and now they're leaking its existence to put pressure on congress to fund it.

    Of course the natural question is whether or not the technology is there for air-to-air. That would be a game changer.

    When I saw the blurb above it reminded me of how the defense department leaked the stealth technology in Red Storm Rising in the 80's when they were fighting for the funding to make it real.
