    Not that I'm aware of. You're not suppossed to use lasers to blind personel, but nothing against using them to destroy incoming artillery and mortar shells.

    Nice to see protection form mortars finally. The MoD will probably get this, after several years and costing twice as much as it is worth.

    There is a more powerful version that is supposed to have the capability of destroying satellites.
