One of my ATF movies from my childhood. It convinced me I could be a laser scientist (that's what I thought they were called)... Instead, I almost electrocuted myself and blew half the breakers in my house. Pro Tip, don't take apart electronics without knowing what each component does, and especially don't plug it back in. #TrueStory LMFAO

The second oddity?
What aircraft are they building this for? This isn't the laser for SHIELD (the 50 kw self defense laser to shoot down missiles). Nor is this the AC-130 laser AFAIK. This is for something else. Or so it would see.
But what aircraft IS this for?
Let the speculations begin.

There have been many companies working on laser tech for the military for years. They've posted enough videos of their testing against various things. They don't need to shop around to grab tech.
