Here is the latest news about aircraft and laser weapons. If there is not a thread about it already, it would make a nice factual addition to ATS. hint hint...
So, we finally have them small enough for a C-130. That means we may secretly have a proto-type ready to try on a small fighter.
We did not get a working flying saucers with laser guns from the Nazi's. At the very least we would be using them in afghanistan, never mind vietnam...

this makes me think of the book World War Z.
the government in the zombie overrun nation of the USA figured out working laser weapons. sort of like laser cannons. they were highly effective, but really inefficient and gruesome. They used them limitedly in battle as a morale booster (what army wouldnt be uplifted when their side breaks out a weapon that burns flesh straight off the bone)
anyways, what im getting at is we probably would display it if for nothing else a morale boost. wouldnt breaking out some new ultra flashy and seemingly unstoppable tech. garner more support for a war? and plus if we did have functioning laser weapons that were efficient, wouldnt that cut down on casualties and again, garner more support for the war and create more patriotism since we would be a nation with an unstoppable army.
i think laser weapons are and have been in production, just not to convenient to use at this point in time.
I know we have technology that the general public does not know about. We also tend to understate the capabilities of just about any military system.
All I am contesting is that we took working flying saucers with laser weapons from the Nazi's. Common sense says that we would be using the heck out of that. Did we get a foundation from the nazi's? You betcha...
In one of your posts, you mentioned the foo fighters without lasers. I would buy that idea easily. I have no reason to think that the Nazi's did not have a saucer prototype.
Why do I say the Nazi's did not have working saucers with lasers guns? Simple. First, the reason I already stated. The Nazi's would have won if they had this technology. Flying saucers with lasers will win against prop jobs with regular guns anytime. The next reason is that since we won the war, we would have aquired (or the Russians would) this working technology. If it was working in the 40s, it would be perfected now.
