What's next? Low orbit ion cannons? What happened to the railgun? personally Id prefer if we went back to using swords and shields. Also it would be cool if we could convert nukes to usable energy.

Might want to learn where a huge portion of technology and medical advancements came from, military r&d bud. Cutting edge trauma operations used in hospitals and a huge list of others. Whatever happend to people thinking before they speak? Love blind ignorance.

Pathetic? Your comment is pathetic.

Cut military research and development and you can kiss the majority of modern advancements goodbye. Watch loved ones die that could have been saved.

It can only take down slow moving targets and doesn't work that well in bad weather. I think they should probably do a bit more R&D before they are put into use.

polite question about that...
my first post was about me being a Vet in the US Navy, how or why did that get removed.?

^ This...I'm active duty Army. Won't say too much about it but my ellipse speaks for me.

But more on topic LAZZZERRRSS!!! OMG Destroy them with lasers! Kill/Don't kill whatever lasers are cool. Lasers on boats are cooler.

Did you live under a rock for the past 55 years?

They should invest more money on to the 747 with a laser and improve it a bit more. A laser in the sky is much better than a laser on the sea.

Don't see why people would argue against this? If not a laser then it'll just be THIS..


You can't win wars by being against it...

Example from Soviet Union (wiki)
Quote:
"In April, the United States Navy conducted FleetEx '83, the largest fleet exercise held to date in the North Pacific.[16][17] The conglomeration of approximately forty ships with 23,000 crewmembers and 300 aircraft, was arguably the most powerful naval armada ever assembled. U.S. aircraft and ships attempted to provoke the Soviets into reacting, allowing the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence to study Soviet radar characteristics, aircraft capabilities, and tactical maneuvers. On April 4 at least six U.S. Navy aircraft flew over Zeleny Island, one of the Kurile Islands. The Soviets were outraged, and ordered a retaliatory overflight of U.S. Aleutian Islands. The Soviet Union also issued a formal diplomatic note of protest, which accused the United States of repeated penetrations of Soviet airspace."

We didn't scare them by blowing them up to smithereens, we just cast a HUGE shadow over them. I see that as a worthy price to pay.

Now imagine that shadow overhead armed to the teeth with powerful lasers.
