Weaponised Lasers On Sale, Just In Time For Christmas

Northrop Grumman has said that it is ready to take orders for the "world's first ruggedised, weaponised high energy solid state laser designed for battlefield applications". The raygun module is dubbed FIRESTRIKE™. The solid-state laser unit weighs over 400lbs, sends/receives instructions and data via an RJ-45 jack and can be synchronized with additional units to emit a 100 kW beam.

No I'm not reminising about the '85 film Real Genius. This is the real deal. Just in time to fill my long time christmas wish of being able to vaporize my enemies with the click of a mouse. So for all you out there looking to get me a stocking stuffer this year, this will do just fine, sans Iceman.
