european military contractor tests laser weapon

All Batteries Fire!

Rheinmetall Defense, a Europe-based military technology contractor, recently tested a fully-functional laser weapon system.

The laser turret was able to target and eliminate nearby drones and mortar shells during a December test near Zürich, according to Army Recognition — a terrifying vision of the future of warfare.

Teamwork

The laser is expected to be customized and deployed during ground, air, and naval-based combat.

Specifically, it was designed to supplement the NBS MANTIS anti-air system that the German military deployed to protect its outposts in Afghanistan, according to Army Recognition.
