U.S. Urged To Develop Lasers For Gulf Ops
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has been urged to develop laser
weapons for naval and other operations in the Gulf.
A leading think tank has determined that directed energy weapons would
foil Iran's efforts to dominate the Gulf and threaten the U.S. Navy. The
Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments asserted that the U.S. Navy
and other services could use laser weapons to strike Iranian fast attack
craft in the Strait of Hormuz and the rest of the Gulf.
