Raygun testing begins – 100kW electro-laser nearly ready for battlefield use

northrop-laser-raygun-100kw.jpgMilitary developer Northrop Grumman has a dream. A dream to create proper rayguns. A dream we would happily fund by paying extra tax and posting it off to the American government should it be able to pull it off.

But that’s not necessary – it has already done it. Northrop will soon start testing a 100 kilowatt model of its Joint High Power Solid State Laser, which chains together eight smaller 15kW models. It has already successfully tested a chain of two. We’re not sure what effect 100kW of focused energy has on an enemy, although we would suspect – and indeed hope – it can make heads explode.

Here’s a terrifying quote from Northrop Grumman’s chief harbinger of doom:

“Our march towards providing compact, electrically powered, operationally scalable and affordable laser weapons for U.S. military services continues to produce world-leading results.”

Which is pretty much just a nicer way of saying “YOU WILL ALL KNEEL BEFORE NORTHROP’S MIGHTY DEATH CANON OR YOU WILL BE OBLITERATED.”

    and they gave it away to GOVERMENT practice of killing the populations of earth easy as possible without understanding the true transport nature of the electro-laser ability

    human companies giving away dangrous science to goverment so every human dies in its placed systems of control

    damn you, Goverment dosent care how you are paid unless your dead
