    As part of Boeings Advanced Tactical Laser (ATL) under the Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) program, a specially modified C-130H has been fitted with a chemical laser weapon system.

    "The ATL ACTD program is intended to combine the two advanced technologies referred to above. The ATL uses a closed-cycle, chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) with beam control. The ATL will be able to engage tactical targets from a moving platform at ranges of approximately 10 kilometers. It can spot a ten-centimeter-wide beam on a distant target for up to 100 shots. This beam has enough power to slice through metal at a distance of nine miles."
