Next-gen US drone-  now equipped with ‘death ray’ laser

The next generation of military drones, unveiled by a leading US manufacturer, will not just carry a limited supply of rockets – but will likely be fitted with an ultra-light laser, capable of repeatedly destroying objects at the speed of light.

“It would give us an unlimited magazine,” a person close to the High Energy Liquid Laser Area Defense System (HELLADS) program told Time magazine.

Over the past four years, the Defense Advance Research Project Agency (DARPA) has given contractor General Atomics over $60 million to develop and then scale HELLADS – a powerful 150 kW ray with a difference.

Current lasers of that strength – enough to destroy an incoming rocket or plane – are bulky, which means they can only be placed on stationary defense systems.

HELLADS, which DARPA says is in the “final development stage,” is radically lighter. It will weigh only 750 kilograms – less than a very small car. http://rt.com/news/hellads-drone-predator-darpa-762/

Good one Suzie.

The day is coming soon when all people will have to answer for their life decisions and only then will the righteous be rewarded for their moral integrity. The rest will only at best crumble and die before our maker. I hate to even think about what could happen at the worst.

An awakening of the masses is coming and the real power that sleeps within the righteous will be unleashed. Telekinesis and telepathy are the untapped powers that will be ours to command but only as a defense. Pity the evil ones....Their bullets and bombs will be turned against their own selves.

Well, this could get fun.

Physical weapons will be self destructive... Be part of the solution not part of the problem. Let go of the animal while realizing and promoting the spirit.

So interesting. Just what are these rays capable of - melting steel bunkers, piercing the Pentagon, assassinating terrorist in dense crowds, brainwashing, etc?
