The United States navy has tested its new creation – the world’s first active laser weapon system.

The system which cost $40 million does not use ammunition.

The strikes are silent and invisible as lasers travel at the speed of light.

Speaking with CNN, Chris Wells, captain of the USS Ponce, said the weapon is more precise than a bullet.


“It’s not a niche weapon system like some other weapons that we have throughout the military where it’s only good against air contacts, or it’s only good against surface targets, or it’s only good against, you know, ground-based targets — in this case this is a very versatile weapon, it can be used against a variety of targets,” he said.
