    You can do the same with Hillary Clinton's glasses on a clear day.

    Everyone thinks this is a joke till it's used to defend us. Latest attempts for Korean Missile launches? It's safe to assume this technology is way more advanced than what we're actually shown. Probably outfitted on satellites as well…

    You can thank Nikola Tesla for this technology…

    Not only is this significantly shorter than the video released you also purposely edited it to change the order of events and put terrible music on it. You are evil and why Trump is running for president.

    It may cost $600 billion, but nothing pays or feels better than knowing you are the biggest badass on the planet. Murica

    This is very slick technology. I'm proud of the U.S. Navy for developing something that can cherry pick targets, it will save lives on both sides. Disarming a vessel before it needs to be blown to kingdom come is a great way to show military superiority. "You are such a low threat profile we merely disabled your weapons, you may go". LOL the Psychological effect that would have on an opponent is priceless.

    Props to the seaman at 1:13 using the Nintendo controller. If it's as good as the Vulcan/Phalanx, and never runs out of ammunition, that's a win.

    I hope we can use these new weapons and what powers them for some sort of civilian use like generating electricity

  • Reply Pablo Jay July 25, 2019 at 1:06 pm

    The stabilization system is truly impressive, not so the power output of the weapon, any laser you have to keep on the same point on a target for several seconds is always go to bring "diminishing returns". Plus they are horizon limited.
    I say give it another 20 years before maturity and really powerful solid state lasers.

    0:55 , looks like dynamite sticks on the rail of the boat. When it explodes , the explosion only seems to be on that area, and then they blow off into the water.. I don't know how real this video is.

    Finally, a REALISTIC goal!
    Diversity acceptance? Too hard ๐Ÿ™
    Teaching men not to rape? Too hard ๐Ÿ™
    World hunger solutions? Too hard ๐Ÿ™
    The environment? Too hard ๐Ÿ™
    Animal rights? Too hard ๐Ÿ™

    A Working DEATH STAR? Well it only took 55 years but now it can finally destroy an aircraft!

    I gotta admit, even though I hate how much money the U.S Military gets so it can keep up it's glory-boy fantasy, this kinda stuff nearly makes it worth it.ย
