Navy lasers on ships in 2014

The Future is now ...


The U.S. Navy plans top launch its first ever battleship mounted laser next year. This weapon is capable of taking out air-crafts and small enemy boats; powered by infrared energy.

Why it didn't work on planes. :{

They tried to put the lasers on planes but the cost was way to high. 1.5 billion to mount on planes they found it more convenient to put on ships. At 3.5 million to put on ships the weapon proved more efficient on Battleships.


Guaranteed to be effective and low cost to operate.
