If I would choose I would fire MG instead of laser. Much faster and cheaper way to do it. :D

It's only 10kw. Budget lasers.

They have them up to 30kw though: http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/news/press-releases/2014/january/140128-mst-lockheed-martin-demonstrates-weapons-grade-high-power-fiber-laser.html


Stuffs moving along when it comes to the pew pew, the Excalibur laser system below is supposed to get up to 100kw + as testing goes on.

Looks intimidating too.

If you want to read up on the various types of weaponized lasers and ideas on how they plan to use them, you can get a cup of coffee and read up on the paper Northrup Grumman has here:

Seems like they want 100kW as a minimum for usable weapon effectiveness.
