It's freakin huge.

I thought it was gonna be a hand held thing, I was thinking "Phasers, sweet!" but no, it's more like a cannon.

That's awful.


Explosive, debris-flinging missiles are better?

This weapon has virtually no collateral damage. Civilians = madd safe, son.
My God, it's full of stars!

I know, I know. It'll make things better, I guess.

Just that we need something like that at all makes me sad.

What the hell, why? It's actually less dangerous than using a missile. It's much safer for civilians and the surrounding environment/wildlife.

Probably, I don't really care one way or another. I was just trying to clarify what the other guy was saying.

Lasers have some severe limitations in using them as a primary weapon system.
Most notable are weather and smoke. Also very much a line of sight system. You ain't shootin' over the horizon. I'm sure there may be some specific situations where a laser is the preferred weapon of choice but it's limited in it's versatility. Plus shielding technology against lasers is already farther beyond the ability of lasers to target and destroy.

I'm not trying to start an argument, I'm just saying I don't find reading about the new and better ways of killing people entertaining.

If this laser is used for good purposes, so be it.

Just based on the article, the main idea seems to be to fly over and shoot tanks, small bases, etc.

Sure but it is still limited in its effectiveness. Low cloud cover, precipitation and fog all reduce it. And if an enemy is aware of that type of weapon operating in theatre smoke generators work. Most tanks already have the capacity to generate smoke for defensive purposes.

Okay, but consider the combat environment that this weapon is most likely going to be facing... I don't really think that homegrown terrorist organizations and religious extremists are really going to be able to effectively combat this weapon.

Like I said above I'm sure that there are specific targets and missions that it may excel at but I don't see it becoming any type of primary weapon system.

Would love to see/be involved in the testing of a system like that. It is something that I will definitely try to keep up with.
This one is also quite interesting.

Pretty cool, I was gonna say it seems impossible, but I don't know anything about chemical lasers, so when I read that...


Seems like building a giant magnifying glass would have been cheaper...

imba?

Imbalanced.

It's a video game term.

I'm all for warfare being as efficient as possible (the quicker it ends, the better, am I right?), but all these gadgets are kinda ruining the tactical (battlefield) aspect of warfare.

I'm not really a fan of weapons' races.

Totally. They'll be using aimbots and wallhacks soon.

Ffs. They should use knives. Everyone knows you run faster with a knife.

Technology will eventually reach the point where we march onto the battlefield only carrying sticks and rocks for fear of escalating it to what we can do.
