Military bigwigs gathered in Orlando this week for the annual AirWarfare Symposium to discuss big plans for big weapons that do big damage. According to a report, the biggest unfunded project that U.S. Special Operations Command hopes to push through is a C-130 that’s equipped with a power laser weapon.
Lt. Gen. Brad Webb, the head of Air Force Special Operations Command tells Defense One that he’s very optimistic about the project. “There are a lot of vendors that are really contributing to and continue to push that technology along,” he says.
The project has been floating around as a potential R&D effort for years.
