    Space rifling boosters warheads to spin, shedding the laser point into a fog of weaker energy, or point another laser at the laser point for cancellation effect? Electromagnetic jacket might also work along with Delta speed energy re-entry.

    So basically it's the DEAD (Directed Energy Air Defence) System from Black Ops 3?

    Would they put it on their passenger planes for defense?

    it will be great when our soldiers have them on their weapon, eventually friend or foe ID.

    This is the end of all the expensive toys. How come ever version/demonstration uses the hold & burn w/no range, when on sci -fi it is more intense bullet like approach. The limit of range & power will only b ever worked out w/a pulse wood pecker approach. Hit the target is not the problem, nor time, it is w/enough of a blow. Gunning a jet verses trying to get a cannon shell on it for 1 shot effect. As lasers get better the mirror like heat shielding on a potential target will get ever better. Sustained damage may do the job n real world better than hold & burn. It all comes down to range, less than a football field burn away, but mile or so pinging a target w/long range never miss bullets seem better approach.

    If its a co2 laser then element 42 is the answer to the drone developer, I love the number 42, Life the universe and everything, but yes laser sharks 🙂

    Yes sharks yes, but at the moment what its the 42nd most present element in the universe. Its all sixes and sevens to me 😉

    Is this being narrated by Elastigirl/Mrs Incredible from the Disney film?

    Dear Boeing, Please produce more videos starring Isaac Neal. Doesn't matter what the vids are about, he's total eye-candy and could sell me anything!

  • Reply Ciara Pringle July 25, 2019 at 7:47 am

    So Boeing makes nice big jetliners and now they make stuff that can shoot them down? Yaaaay.
    That's good isn't it, is that good?

    I prefer my lasers with red beams and pew pew sounds. Laser battles are going to be boring, just people setting on fire in silence.
