  Modern Military Concepts C&C Related? - Off Topic

I got some interesting info that is somewhat C&C related. It appears that the US is looking into some satellite-based laser weapons, not unlike GDI's Ion Cannon. Of course, it will be hopefully used to attack enemy ballistic missiles. There's also an anti-missile laser-armed ground vehicle like the Avenger. Pretty interesting read if you ask me.


Enjoy! (At least it's not an article about barley, eh?)

naaaaah that cant be real....they would have to make a laser that has ULTIMATE range and it has to be very powerful to make damage and for armored mobile missile launcher... i think thats just some stupid kid sayd that to some other kid and he told it to hes big bro and the list goes on until someone get that idea that USA is making a laser weapon that is fired from space and put it to net... i just think that its almost impossible to make that kind of weapon to space use, and i would be too yeasy to shoot down with cruise missile or something, and theres VERY cold in space so i think that i would freeze at there...

Resistance is Futile! If its true, then whole world is in great danger.Resistance is Futile!

If IT would freeze up there, how come none of our OTHER satellites have frozen? Look at the ISS, it sustains LIFE in space.

Also, Lasers have an infinite range. The only thing that makes it hard to see or use ("see" references a regular over the counter laser pointer) is the particles and crap in the atmosphere, because they diffuse it. However, such a heated laser would easily tear through the atmosphere, nearly unhindered, to obliterate its target. Do you realize that if we get several of these up, that we would become the most feared country in the world yet again? Its an awesome, awe-inspiring thought, but it may become our poison as well.

On a darker note-

I'm always patriotic, but even I know my country, the United States of America, will one day fall. History repeats itself. We are not unlike Greece, or Troy. We were huge, powerful, and stomped everyone that messed with us. Then, when we got complacent (like has happened now, leaving our borders very weak, defense wise, etc) they fell.

I hope that day doesn't come for a while, but I'm sure most of the world wants us dead now.

Also, sorry for gettin' TOO political, but I had to get it off my chest. I do kinda wish we hadn't gone and *****ed off the world, we are risking losing our allies, I think, which is unfortunate.

Fake news..

Orbital Weaponry is forbidden by international law conventions, as are military bases on the moon. if the US is INDEED building orbital based weapons, be it for defense or offense, theyre breaking international rules, and will get their asses kicked for arrogance

Actually, orbital weapons of mass destrucction are forbidden, and there is nothing which prevents you from sending anything else such as a huge **** cannon into space. And that is one huge **** flaw, because what the hell can anyone do to stop you from putting WMDs into space if you have other weapons that can shoot down rockets, missiles and other spacecraft?
