US Army Will Have Laser Weapons by 2023 as Research Bosses Say Killer Technology Is ‘Very Close’

The US Army is planning to deploy the first laser weapons in 2023, it has been revealed.

Mary J. Miller, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for Research and Technology, told the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities ‘I believe we’re very close,’ when asked how close the Army is to developing offensive and defensive directed-energy weapons.


She said the programmes would be extensively tested as the Army wants to understand the lasers’ full capabilities ‘before we offer it to a Soldier’ . . .

‘We have to make sure the lasers work and do the full set of scopes against the threats we project. And those threats include the counter-rockets, counter-artillery and counter-mortar as well as [Unmanned Aerial Vehicle] and cruise missile threats.’

Miller explained that the Army wants to understand the lasers’ full capabilities ‘before we offer it to a Soldier.’ (Read more from “US Army Will Have Laser Weapons by 2023 as Research Bosses Say Killer Technology Is ‘Very Close'” HERE)

    Really? What for? kenyan boyo is letting the commies and the rags do whatever they please…military action is needed now and some special comments by a leader and directed to the scum in chinkee ville and roosha….not happening due to the USA having been without a president since 2009…leadership is needed in order for the turd$ in commieland and rag ville to be made aware of how quickly they can be vaporized…just ask the whiners and crybabies in the coffee shops…anytime the UN and other countries get together to eliminate a bad actor the children begin to cry and scream and fill their diapers…

    Of course that will be after Obama’s people give the weapons blueprints to the terrorist. It will take a hundred years to undue the damage Obama has done to this country.
