The U.S army equips forces with bullets of light

The U.S Army plans to equip its armored forces with bullets of light.
Designed to safeguard troops against attack drones weighing more than 20 lbs, as well as rockets, mortars, and artillery, this new combat laser is the first of its kind.
The U.S Army has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to counter drones, given that the proliferation of these types of low-cost drones poses serious threats to soldiers and facilities both abroad and at home.
Furthermore, as part of the budget for the fiscal year 2022, congress allocated about $434 million to the U.S Army for the efforts to confront drones, which is $60 million more than what the military requested.
