Business ad

Yeah, spend $10k on stuff that will be obsolete next year tongue (and which 10 years later could all be done with a single device for $1000 or less)

Also, the grotesque level of consumerist capitalism in that video is :/

The Navy just demonstrated the firepower of its fully armed and operational laser weapon.

Obligatory "holy crap, it's the future!"

Seriously though, it's really impressive that the tracking for the laser weapon is so accurate that it can pinpoint a specific spot on a flying plane from a moving and rolling ship, and maintain that for several seconds like that.

It's a drone, not a plane, something measured in kg, not tonnes. But, yeah, cool video. If NK can release show-off videos, why not others.

A plane without a pilot is still a plane

Quote (midtskogen)

It could be measured in either

Since you brought it up, the RQ-4B Global Hawk - a "drone" - has a wingspan of 40 meters and a mass of 14628 kilograms: nearly 15 tons. The Rutan VariEze - a "plane" - has a mass of 476 kg, less than half a ton.

[EDIT] And before you dismiss me for having cited extreme examples (which I did), let me point out that the MQ-9 Reaper, which is often employed for those infamous drone strikes, has a mass of 4.7 tons and is used frequently by various U.S. and international government agencies, including NASA. Its predecessor, the even more ubiquitous MQ-1 Predator, also has a mass in excess of one ton. In comparison, the Cessna 172 - one of the most common aircraft in the world - also has a mass of slightly more than one ton, approximately the size of the MQ-1 and much smaller than the MQ-9.

You should probably seek a deeper understanding of aircraft design and classification.

I was merely pointing out that the drone in the video appears to be pretty small and somewhat flimsy compared to the typical plane for which maintaining the focus obviously will have less dramatic effects. If you can show that the thing in the video was a multi-tonne robust aircraft, I'll happily retract my clarification. A drone is more specific. And I didn't say that drones can't be in the tonne range (or gram range for that matter). Just that this one appears to be in the kg range (which also is typical).
