China has developed a hand-held laser. It looks to be mainly useful for crowd control and maybe anti-terror operations at the moment.

The US may put laser weapons on the F-35.  Interesting.

Not to be outdone, the US Army is going to field a 100Kw laser for anti-drone, anti-mortar defense.

If Chinese forces are actively using lasers to try an blind our pilots, you have to think that the Chinese are willing to up the tensions between the two countries.  I wonder if this was a local commander or some local troops going off script.  If not, that worries me.

This sounds interesting, if a bit far into the future.  I’ll be interested to see if they can pull it off.
