The Avenger defense system is a surface-to-air missile deployment system that is exceptionally light and portable and is usually installed on the backs of combat vehicles. It includes a powerful infrared targeting system that makes it easy to locate targets at any time of day or night, in any weather. Stinger missiles are frequently used to deploy them. However, in 2008, Boeing upgraded the Avenger system after long experiments with a laser cannon.

It combines the Avengers’ traditional kinetic energy-based armaments with a directed-energy laser weapon. A real version of the laser cannon may seem far-fetched, but the device was successfully tested in 2009. During a test, the laser Avenger was able to track three unmanned aerial aircraft and shot one down using its laser. It is probable that there will be other uses for this technology in the near future. However, it’s worth noting that the military now has laser guns capable of tracking and shooting things down from the sky.

Interesting, right?

  1. Nice to know the USA has these extremely powerful weapons. I hope we continue on track in the future with even more weapon advancements. I feel as long as we have a first-rate military other countries won’t mess!

  2. The B83 nuclear weapon is 80 times more powerful than the one dropped on Hiroshima, not the opposite, which is what you posted.

  3. The absurdity of the whole nuclear weapon growth premise is astounding, how many times over does the threat of extinction of all life on earth cease to be anything but a redundant intimidation at huge expense? Dead is dead, after the initial exchange of warheads it will not matter to a burned out cinder floating in a lifeless barren solar system. How’s that for a pleasant Good Morning?!
