http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/6917041.stm 'The US Army is developing a truck-mounted laser weapon to destroy rockets, artillery shells and mortars. Aerospace giant Boeing has been awarded a contract to start on the first phase of the project - designing a control system for the laser beam. The solid state laser weapon would eventually be mounted on a 10-tonne, eight-wheel-drive tactical truck. The American military has several programmes underway to develop battlefield lasers.' I seem to remember reading an article about all sorts of other weapons a while back, the one that sticks in my mind are the sonic weapons which use sound waves to incapicitate an enemy, a bit like the Brown Note episode of South Park. Anyone else know anything about this or any other developments? I think the whole thing is quite interesting. Maybe thats just me though?
