POWERFUL lasers capable of destroying aircraft have been tested in an awe-inspiring test demonstration, it has been revealed.
Chinese company Poly Technologies showed off its new bit of next-age tech at a military exhibition in Kazakhstan this week.
The “Silent Killer” laser is able to obliterate unmanned drones from about 328 yards away.
Silent killer’s lasers are also able to jam incoming electronic attacks, effectively making an hack attempt impossible.
The weapon is capable of being mounted onto mobile vehicles as well as warships, according to its developers.
It has since emerged, however, that in addition to its obvious military applications, the weapon may prove to be popular with celebrities worried about drones taking pictures of them inside their homes.
The advancement in laser technology comes just weeks after US military chiefs warned fighter jet pilots to “use extreme caution” near a Chinese base.
