U.S. Navy Tests Drone-Killing 'Super Laser' in the Persian Gulf - Breitbart

U.S. Navy Tests Drone-Killing 'Super Laser' in the Persian Gulf - Breitbart: U.S. Naval officers have started testing a “super laser” in the Persian Gulf with the ability to shoot down a drone at the speed of light.

Naval officers told the Daily Mail that the laser, estimated to cost about $30 million and contain 30kW of power, is “more precise than a bullet.”

Military officials have been testing the laser weapons system (LaWS) aboard the USS Ponce, an amphibious transport vessel, and predict that the laser will be combat-ready by 2020.

“It is more precise than a bullet,” Chris Wells, captain of the USS Ponce, told CNN. “This is a very versatile weapon, it can be used against a variety of targets.”
