It may sound like sci-fi, but lasers are definitely the future of war. As are drones. So what could be better than to see them go up against each other in a blaze of explosive glory? Looks like in the rock-paper-scissors game of modern combat, laser beats drone.
This is the future of warfare. And it's so, so cool.
The US military has been toying with lasers for a while now. The Air Force is considering them as weapons on future fighters and bombers, and Lockheed Martin has been working to make them a source of fuel for drones. The Navy? They just like to shoot stuff with 'em.
