Navy To Deploy Laser System This Summer

As if our military wasn't bad ass enough as it is, soon we'll have lasers on our ships. Not bad ass enough? We'll have rail guns after that. cool

Some of the Navy's futuristic weapons sound like something out of "Star Wars," with lasers designed to shoot down aerial drones and electric guns that fire projectiles at hypersonic speeds. That future is now. The Navy plans to deploy its first laser on a ship later this year, and it intends to test an electromagnetic rail gun prototype aboard a vessel within two years.
