Avenger Laser weapon knocks UAV out of the air

Gosh, these lasers grow up so darn quick! It seems just yesterday that the Avenger’s predecessor, the Advanced Tactical Laser, was being tested on those cute little Hercules transports. And then all that fussing about the Free Electron Laser!

Pretty soon they’re going to be taking it for its first ride on a 747 — you’re going to want to have the camera ready! And then take out the SD card once you’re done and swallow it because they’re going to need to confiscate your camera, sir. Orders.

Can you say “plausible deniability?” I knew you could!

Yes that is an X-COM screenshot.
