ZEUS now slingin’ thunderbolts in Iraq March 17, 2005 Posted by Murdoc LASER HUMMER IN IRAQ Last April I noted a laser cannon-armed Humvee being tried out in Afghanistan to destroy ordinance and roadside bombs from a safe distance. It performed so well that it’s now being tested in Iraq. Follow the link to DefenseTech for more. Updated: March 17, 2005 at 1:28 pm ◀ Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms…Who’s bringing the chips? Sad ▶ Comments Very cool, but I think the Close Quarters Shock Rifle (think ‘Startrek Phasor’) is cooler: http://blog.joehuffman.org/archive/2004/09/23/367.aspx Due out sometime this year. Not a bad thing for the military to have in their arsenal. Very costly for a round to hit its cooling system at the back, cause it doesnt look too protected. (even if I would like to see what would happen if they had to use it in combat) Anyone know the cost of this system?
