US Army will shoot down drones and mortars

The US Army is currently testing High Energy Laser Mobile Test Truck (HELMTT) with a 10 kilowatt laser.

They are destroying drones and other targets in field tests.

They will upgrade the 10 kilowatt laser to a 60 kilowatt laser for more range and ability to operate in fog, rain and other conditions.

The US Army is also getting antidrone and antiaircraft trucks with improved missile systems and rapid firing 50 mm guns that shoot guided grenades.

As the tests continue, the US Army will try out even more different missiles in a truck launcher. The final version could be able to destroy enemy planes and drones, blast incoming artillery rounds and attack targets on the ground. The Army hopes to have a completed design sometime in 2017.
