It is reported that the US military research institute is preparing to install a relatively large laser pointer on a ground platform such as an armored truck. It is testing that it is expected to serve in 2020. In this way, the vehicle can be protected from enemy rockets and mortars. The threat of guns and artillery, and several experiments recently, have achieved outstanding results. It is expected that in 2020, the US vehicle-mounted laser weapons will enter the testing phase.
Laser weapons have super high speeds and are very mobile. However, laser weapons are also affected by weather conditions. If you encounter heavy fog, if the rain or snow is relatively large, it may be effective and have a great impact. In addition, laser weapons also require a lot of energy for launching, and energy consumption is also very large.
Although laser weapons have gone through solid laser emitters to carbon dioxide to chemistry, their materials are constantly being updated, but their effects are not as good as expected, because the core technology is not solved. This also affects the assembly of laser weapons. For the US-based vehicle-mounted laser weapons, it is estimated that it will be more difficult, but with the current technology in the United States, it should be possible to experiment in 2020.
