The problem is, it would only be practical when operated in conjuction with machinery, such as aircraft and tanks and such. I would imagine that a
system like that would be too big and bulky to carry, and it would really suck to have a billion dollar weapon shot out of you hands and shatter.
However, if this does really become a conventional weapon, warfare can change forever. Today's stealth techonogies would be practically obsolete
because if your plane gets detected for even a second, your pretty much dead. Flares and counterneasures and stuff like that would be useless, but I
guess you can still use things like ECM.
When used in ground warfare (or ATG), think about how devestating it can be.
You can literally shoot through walls! (To a certain extent)
