US Military Will Install Laser Turrets on Bombers and Fighter Jets

eklendi
 
It was science fiction before, but now it's really happening, Young Skywalker: The US Navy and Air Force are going to install liquid-cooled, solid-state lasers in combat airplanes. Laser turrets designed to defend the planes by shooting incoming threats like surface-to-air missiles and rockets. Seriously. The above is an official concept image by DARPA, but integration is happening this year, with real firing tests coming in 2014. (gizmodo.com) Daha Fazlası...

Call me a cynic but I don't see this being a viable and deployed technology for at least another decade.
