ultimately right now, there is a HUGE problem with converting energys and then also the containment and release of it.
The reason large lasers are large is that you can run more lines to the "device", less means bottle necks and those are bad when you want to either
dump or convert energy.
It may end up with extremely specialized one time use battery's used to power pulse lasers to get the desired effect. The idea that a single plane
can fly around and cause bullet/missile type damage endlessly is pure fantasy. Well at least for the time being.
The new tech of self repairing batterys would go some way to help combat the tremendous task of keeping usable electrical energy stable and safe at
the power levels required to be effective in place of chemical and kinetic weapons.
