This laser-armed IED-hunting Humvee was recently featured in Popular Mechanics. There is nothing obviously remarkable about its "IED hunting" capabilities, but it's a sign that directed energy weapons are one step closer to practical employment. How well the laser would fare in rainy or foggy weather is not clear from the article. Conventional weapons can clearly deliver more energy to a target, but far more slowly, but this laser-armed Humvee can deliver substantial amounts of instantaneous energy very accurately.
Those however, with a desire to enhance their SUVs in Hollywood badguy style might be better off considering roof-mounted, popup Gatling Gun.Nothing follows.
