I was talking in another thread about how I felt Missiles would become obsolete in the near future because of rapidly advancing laser technology. As I checked into recent announcements by Northrup Grumman I realized that we are already starting to field high energy Battlefield Laser weapons. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/11...time_for_xmas/

the implications are also not just for missiles but aircraft, satellites, Ships, and all Armored vehicles.
