A life-size model, developed by General Atomics and PEI Electronics, of a mobile 100-kilowatt heat-capacity laser built on a prototype of a hybrid-electric, high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (Humvee) shows the potential compactness of a full-power weapon system. (from 2004)

Below is the video link to the info on laser/direct energy weapons. We know that they have been used in Panama as well.

Things not NOT clear on the video:

who were these weapons "tested" on,
how many,
what conditions were the testors subjected to ...
so very mysterious.

Quote from 2003
Would the laser be used to target people, or would it be used only on objects? Since no other country is anywhere near developing a militarized solid-state laser, under what circumstances would the U.S. use it in a war?
Bright future for tactical laser weapons
