I just observed that Navy laser weapon video...goodness gracious what wrong with you people?
Young scientists clapping and yahooing as another UAS is shot down, what happened to peace?.
You have SO many secret Naval, University, Think Tank, etc departments its incredible.....but the question is why?
People often ask on this forum, "Why does the World hates America?"........Well These weapons are some of the reasons, not to mention greed, secrecy, everything else that is bad.
You now know why the Russians and Chinese dont trust you.
The sooner the Military Machine, that is America is shut down, the Better.

During Vietnam the US used a round short range howitzer round called dragon's breath during VC human wave attacks on fire bases.
Very effective in 105 and 155mm guns as the ball of bright white burning metal powder was the size of a foot ball field.
There were also gun crews in Vietnam that would load 155mm guns with 5 to 6 bags of powder soaked in diesel and a dry powder charge with no projectile. this would cause a orange muzzle flash the size of a football field.
At one fire base the VC were massing for a attack on the base and the gun crews fired one of these rounds just after dark. the next day a patrol went out to recon the area and found the VC had fled during the night giving up the attack.
These rounds fit the story and this type rounds are used mostly for psychological effectedit on 3-6-2012 by ANNED because: (no reason given)
"The device uses a technology known as dynamic pulse detonation (DPD). A short but intense laser pulse creates a ball of plasma and a second laser pulse generates a supersonic shockwave with the plasma to generate a bright flash and a loud bang."

You've shot one, yourself? Does it have much of a kick to it?

We have monsters running our country. And they are making psychopaths out of our troops and police.
