    AP News is reporting the successful testing of a new laser antimissile defense system.

    Israel claims a new system which is an accurate and highly efficient means of intercepting a number of airborne threats.

    It appears that Star Wars weapons have arrived in a big way, though one suspects other functioning laser systems may not be so well defined, as in this story.

    Israel does not provide military aid to Ukraine, and has refused to impose sanctions on Russia.

    That may be about to change:

    Incredible defense system, especially against the ballistic missile, US deployed a similar laser system five years ago on the USS Ponce transport ship!

    Thanks for the info. Was not aware of this as it has had very limited deployment.

    For more on this system, see the wiki link below:
