Humvees to get Roof Mounted Laser Weapons

Combat vehicles may soon be equipped with laser weapon systems to fend off enemy drones and aircraft. Laser weapons and Stinger missiles could be integrated into detection systems and mounted on vehicles, including Humvees and Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, to better protect ground units. A Ground-Based Air Defense (GBAD) Directed Energy On-The-Move will soon head into the next phase of development, enabling the vehicles to fire lasers while in motion.
