    Default Weapons-grade 30kW laser

    30kW from fiber-coupled laser sources http://optics.org/news/5/1/38

    The video looks pretty cool. Wonder what this would do to a soft target?
    Neat!

    ... the rocket's surface seems to be relative dark with good absorption rate ... and the laser had to heat some seconds until the beam penetrated the hull and got inside.

    Now think about mirror tiles and active cooling ... so the next logicals step is 'hardening' rockets to survive laser attacks :-/
