The future is now? At least to an extent! 6th generation jet fighter!
Thanks to the tip from Jay:
"F-35 stealth fighter jets on fast track to receive laser-based offensive and defensive capabilities"
"The Air Force Research Lab and Office of Naval Research are currently developing fast and precise laser weapons that can 'burn holes' through enemy targets at the speed of light. Concurrently, the U.S. Navy is developing a laser-application for its Marine Corps F-35B, intended to effectively maintain the stealth fighter for future decades of war"
