    Lasers might be better for air-defence in urban areas.
    Remember the fuss over missiles on the flats at the Olympics?
    Lot cleaner & quieter to have a laser up there.

    I see that attempts to fit a multi barrelled canon around the Laser is being considered.

    Modern weapons and a sign of the things to come?

    I was thinking more of the CIA drones infringing Pakistan airspace....Drones are not needed to shoot drones down..They are easy meat to any state that does not want the infringement.

    I am sure behind closed doors they have agreement , that it is not an infringing Pakistan airspace, otherwise they would shoot them down.

    The irony is the CIA having to use them on a problem they created themselves.
    I guess the laser will have other uses in the future.
