I can see all the Dr. Evil jokes and lines from the AP movies for the high tech AC-130 when it is fielded someday.

:lol:


Air-to-ground laser for the C-130 to start work. I knew A2G was coming. Given the 747 Laser project was too good just to waste on theater missile defense. :o

Interesting press release....

Holy moley, Batman!!

I want one of those doofers on my Viper.

Roscoe may know something here, but about 20 years ago or more there was talk about a MHD generator about the size of an external tank. Sucker stripped the electrons from a rocket/jet plasma exhaust and allegedly could crank out a few megawatts of juice for your laser.

Nothing fancy for the Viper, Could fire the thing boresight, with maybe a little "anit-jitter" mirror like on the new videocams.

Thus, we would have a true "colonial" Viper a few hundred years early, huh?

Yeah that would be cool on a fighter. Cylon would finally have a weapon worthy of his handle. :lol: Or a SNIPER pod that is actually a sniper. :lol:

Now THAT would qualify for a "Spooky" title! Of course you're not going to be knocking down buildings with it, but if you can smoke the 6'6" tall guy bearded guy carrying a dialysis machine in a crowd without collateral damage... sweetness. Thor was the god with lightning bolts, right? Call this puppy "Thor's Hammer"? :D

You mean Mjolnir?
It takes a fighter with a gun to kill a MiG-21!
