The US has created a mobile laser gun

Very often what we see in science fiction films, in one form or another after some time incarnates in the real world. Laser weapons cannot be described as something unprecedented, however, all the existing laser system was fixed, but recently, the us military Raytheon company introduced the world's first mobile platform with a laser weapon on Board.

The New system is called HELWS-MRZR. It consists of a lightweight buggy Polaris MRZR ATV, body parts of which is a laser installation HELWS. At the moment a major application of laser systems is the destruction of unmanned aerial vehicles. The power of the laser enough to burn through the hull or the propeller of a drone, after which he will fall down.

At the same time have a mobile laser system HELWS-MRZR some disadvantages: for example, the laser can make no more than 30 shots, and then the laser will need to recharge the batteries. Besides, at the moment, the laser cannon cannot fire on the move, and for targeting the entire platform needs to stop. In the nearest plans of developers include the improvement of the present setup, namely the increase of the laser power and adding the ability to fire in motion.
