Kiev: The United States wants to install the first combat laser system on the Navy ship in the near future, Drive portal reports.
The complex is currently located in San Diego. It was developed by the American military-industrial company Northman Grumman, which won the contract for the production of these weapons back in 2015.
The laser will be installed on the USS Portland dock ship (LPD-27). A beam power of 150 kW will allow you to hit small boats and drones.
