"So far the U.S Army has never used lasers in combat but it now has a new target, drones!

For the first time last week, soldiers used a vehicle-mounted laser to successfully shoot down drones and incoming mortar shells. Terry Bauer, who is the program manager for the weapon named High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator, said that this new gun is not likely to be ready for combat until at least 2017."
