yes it was, but for some reason you never tire of borrowing "great satan" terminology. last time it was drone asking brotherly patriot battery for directions and now this. you all keep giving the impression that someone other than the Supreme Leader is pulling your stringsstar wars was a term discussing US plan to establish an space based laser defense to kill soviet ballistic missiles flying toward their soil.

well great satan has good terminology.yes it was, but for some reason you never tire of borrowing "great satan" terminology. last time it was drone asking brotherly patriot battery for directions and now this. you all keep giving the impression that someone other than the Supreme Leader is pulling your strings
Hello obsessed sectarian salafist. Still peddling the lie that Iranians don't think Pakistanis are Muslim?yes it was, but for some reason you never tire of borrowing "great satan" terminology. last time it was drone asking brotherly patriot battery for directions and now this. you all keep giving the impression that someone other than the Supreme Leader is pulling your strings
Not fake, not Russia assisted, but absolutely true.ok.. no offence... either fake/bad or russia assisted...
Indeed, this comes as no surprise, since powerful enough laser can only be envisaged on the largest platforms due to its inherent huge energy consumption, that is requiring no less than several Megawatts output!Is there any possibility that F-313 arm with Tactical Laser System like in the Ace combat one in the future?
This is not how directed energy weapons work. This silly nonsense repeated here in PDF again and again, years after years, post after post, by the professional paid troll of the great agencies.Technically a mirror can defeat laserz eh?
I will take plasma weapon pls
keeping a laser beam locked on a mach 10++ vehicle flying inside a plasma envelop for long duration to heat up a wing...not very doable in my mind. At such speeds the target will be out of line of sight in a very short time (curvature of the earth) so a truck mounted laser is also not very effective as a concept in those speeds.In this article it mentions about Usa developing 250-300kw laser to shoot down cruise missiles.
Instead of building a 100-kilowatt weapon, the Army now plans to leap straight to 250 or even 300 kW -- which could shoot down much tougher targets.breakingdefense.com
However one thing that can be researched about hypersonic targets is if one wing is heated by something like a laser does it have effects on the airflow and flight control, stability of the missile.
View attachment 710710
For example can heating one wing or tail fin of the hypersonic cruise missile with a 100kw laser result in more airflow and roll moment or high vibration at mach5+ speed which would result in loss of stability-control effectively shooting down the missile without burning a hole on it. ionisation of air on one side would also result in less friction on one wing and more friction on the other wing. 250kw-300kw laser would be too large but 100kw laser truck can be achievable and more mobile in that case and be effective enough against hypersonic cms. You also dont need laser to shoot down subsonic cruise missiles.
Since most countries dont have hypersonic cruise missiles this can be experimented by simulations and tested on laser targeting wings of high mach test rockets mocking cruise missiles. Targeting the wing is difficult but can be estimated or if it is controlled by tail fins you can estimate the target as close as possible by considering the length of the missile.
Seems like destruction of a powerplant by a missile that manages to skip through would shut down the whole system as opposed to traditional AD that can operate independently without reliance on static structures.You can use laser to shoot down drones in its terminal stage , burn out missiles nose seekers or shoot down even high speed targets like hypersonic cruise missiles if laser is powerful enough.
However the devices focus on one target at a time and it needs to continiously focus from a relatively shorter range because of atmospheric scattering reducing lasers power at longer ranges. This gives a small time for a single battery to engage multiple incoming targets at once.
In order to stop a swarm attack involving many cruise missiles many of those laser vehicles are necessary including the substitute vehicles while others are cooling down after firing. Cool down period should be as low a possible. Power output should be high. Since it also needs a very short time to disable the target within its range to start cooling down and then focusing on the next target. As it is one to one engagement with little time to focus onto next target as the previous target is neutralized within a shorter range of engagement.
But one to many engagement is possible by a sam system that can engage a mach 6-7 target for example from much longer ranges. Also targets can be detected from longer ranges and they wont have a stealthy shape to reach high mach speeds because of aerodynamics and materials to resist heat at that speed. Laser can be used as a terminal measure against targets which passes through the longer range missile defense.
Another option of the use of laser is to blind the optical system of spy satellites. China has tested more than a decade ago such system. Optical sensors of spy sats have high gain and this is very possible but the satellites are very far away. The laser vehicle required would be very large and perhaps a static building instead of a mobile vehicle making itself an easy target. Optical camouflage type of measures would work better unless those disadvantages are handled. Also it wont work against SAR-imaging type of spy satellites which requires a deceptive type of jamming which is another topic.
WASHINGTON -- The director of the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) confirmed Sept. 26 that at least one American satellite has been illuminated by a ground-based laser operating in China.spacenews.com
