Eh, on the topic of Beam weapons, and missiles, see www.readyaimfuture.com
Click on "Video Galleries"
In "FutureWeapons Season 1: Part 1", view the clip "FutureWeapons: Airborne Laser" for 3 types of lasers in development.
In "FutureWeapons Season 2", view the clip "FutureWeapons: THAAD Missile"
:D
All the other clips are pretty cool, too.  :cool:

* Turey thinks that all ships size Cruiser and up should be resricted to two types of weapons: Beams and Flak. LOTS of Flak.

Isent that the Aelous?

Your point?

Aelous is one of the best cap ships, IMO.
QFT. I completly agree with that assesment.  The Aeolus was quite a nasty crusier.

It said nothing about offensive lasers being mounted on F-35 aircraft.

Found them on different searches, solid-state / microwave lasers. But considering that 85% of any laser based weapon I've looked at was canceled even before the half-point of testing or was just dumped for something else, it's less than likely that they'll ever come through.

Uh? Are talking about dive warheads with no guidance systems? They're far better than a swarm of Tempests.

Depends on how many tempests.

All the tempests a fighter can carry.

The atmosphere is was really holding them back.  It regrades the laser rapidly.

Doesn't mean you can't get a high powered laser to go even somewhat far enough to be a serious threat. It's all about making sure firing two shots doesn't vaporize whatever's housing the weapon. Or melts, or shuts down from overload, or just be too damn heavy to carry, or being so expensive that the contract is canceled (Which is the reason of almost every new project's downfall).

I think the last two especially the weight are the main ones.

Oh, yes it did...

Next, is the close-combat version called the Advanced Tactical Laser, carried on much smaller aircraft like the latest Joint Strike Fighter planes, the ATL is every bit as deadly, taking out air and ground targets with incredible stealth.
:p

Like I said again, there's an 85% chance that the concept will just go down the ****ter like every other laser based weapon I've read about.
