A nightmarish US super weapon reportedly was employed by American ground forces during chaotic street fighting in Baghdad. The secret tank-mounted weapon was witnessed in all its frightening power by Majid al-Ghazali, a seasoned Iraqi infantryman who described the device and its gruesome effects as unlike anything he had ever encountered in his lengthy military service. The disturbing revelation is yet another piece of cinematic evidence brought back from postwar Iraq by intrepid filmmaker Patrick Dillon.

In the midst of the fighting, he noticed that the Americans had called up an oddly configured tank. Then to his amazement the tank suddenly let loose a blinding stream of what seemed like fire and lightning, engulfing a large passenger bus and three automobiles.
A directed-energy weapon (DEW) emits energy in an aimed direction without the means of a projectile. It transfers energy to a target for a desired effect. Intended effects may be non-lethal or lethal. Some such weapons are real, or are under active research and development. The energy can come in various forms: Electromagnetic radiation, in lasers or masers Heat Particles with mass, in particle beam weapons Flamethrowers Sound, in sonic weapons

I have been hearing these stories since Korea. Every war has its "special" weapons that noone has anything but a tale about.
I personally knew a LRRP from Vietnam who swore up and down about a laser sniper rifle that melted heads at a 1000 yards.
In the ‘War of the Worlds’ the Martians used them to incinerate pesky humans more than a century ago.
The Pentagon plans are more modest: crowd control of pesky humans.
Still, after more than a century, the ‘heat ray’ has made the leap from fiction to reality with the U.S. military demonstrating the so-called ‘goodbye effect’ of directing electromagnetic waves at people.
The Pentagon has been experimenting with killer beams for decades. A laser so powerful that it can destroy nuclear-tipped missiles shortly after launch has been mounted in a much-modified Boeing 747 and is being tested.
