GA-ASI got the Pentagon to pay for its
HEL Avenger. They are stating 5 to 6 shots by the HELLADS laser before needing to recharge. FWIW, the standard Avenger's engine can put out 40 kw
sustained. That would mean a 4 second charge for every one second of firing (assuming best case charging). Assuming 6 ten second firings, then you
are looking at a six minute recharge for a full 'magazine' again.
