U.S. Navy Testing Destroyer Mounted Lascannon | #WH40k

Mounted on the USS Paul Foster, this is the first public, at sea demonstration of the Navy's High Energy Laser (HEL) DeathRay. That just sounds cool, HEL Ray! Integrated with the ship’s radar and navigation systems. It fired a 15 kW beam across a mile of open water, but it’s designed to be scaled up to 100 kW, according to builder Northrop Grumman.

While this may not be strong enough to take out missiles or giant meteors, they can take out small vessels- like pirate ships!
