Vehicle Mounted Laser Shoots Down UAV

The Laser Avenger.

During tests last month at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., Laser Avenger achieved its principal test objectives by using its advanced targeting system to acquire and track three small UAVs flying against a complex background of mountains and desert. The laser system also shot down one of the UAVs from an operationally relevant range.

These tests mark the first time a combat vehicle has used a laser to shoot down a UAV.

My principle test objectives involved 6 ejaculations and a cigarette.

Mission accomplished!

Of course, the present administration will treat this as just another ridiculous waste of the taxpayers money, which would be better spent on digital television coupons and the National Endowment for the Arts.
