The US Army has transferred experimental laser to Europe weapon. The 2 Cavalry Regiment of the US Army, stationed in the town of Vilsekk (Bavaria), received the Stryker MEHEL 2.0 experimental installation, the "Warspot" with reference to the portal armyrecognition.com


The United States transferred to Europe Stryker with a laser installation


The Stryker MEHEL 2.0 armored personnel carrier arrived in Germany after a batch of Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicle Dragoon (ICVD) combat vehicles and had already managed to participate in military exercises. The US Department of Defense points out that an experimental laser system will increase air defense capabilities, and will also make it possible to evaluate the capabilities of the Stryker MEHEL 2.0 in European conditions.

The Stryker with a combat laser system is being developed as an auxiliary air defense system and will complement traditional air defense systems. According to the military, using a laser instead of rockets will allow cheap and effective combat with small UAVs and other low-flying air targets.

For the first time, the Stryker MEHEL 2.0, developed by General Dynamics Land Systems, was presented at the AUSA 2016 arms exhibition. It was reported that the shown machine is equipped with a full set of tools for detecting and destroying UAVs, including a radar station, an electronic warfare complex, means of identification "friend or foe", as well as a 5 kW laser facility.

      God forbid you to be in the sight of this "waffle". Not all they do is useless toys. Maybe not very effective, but still - a weapon. Moreover, only a prototype. They can bring to mind.

        garbage is plastic barely caught fire and in general the flame is almost knocked down by an air stream in the frame, plus like any laser only in cloudless weather, all these are toys

          The physics there is complicated. First, an incoming air flow interferes with surface heating due to heat transfer. But, when the flash point is reached, the plastic itself begins to burn and destroys itself. Then the laser is not required to destroy the material, but only to maintain its independent combustion in the air stream. This greatly (at times) reduces the requirements for laser energy.

            This is all fun on a frozen object in clear weather. But in real combat conditions, weapons of destruction (such as ATGMs) fly up very quickly and often along difficult paths, and immediately after the start of the battle, visibility is greatly deteriorated by smoke (including their own shooting), dust, and haze. ... And if somewhere the smoke screen director works, then in general ...
            And the efficiency of even a powerful laser will drop dramatically.
            So this is a device to bring down "toys". So that all sorts of curious and journalists did not spy on the fighters. ..

            And if the UAV is made of non-combustible plastic, heat-resistant composite and painted with reflective paint? For a laser, everything gets worse by three to four orders of magnitude (10 ^ N).

              Such an UAV is much more expensive than polystyrene. I think that now there is simply a search for an effective and cheap method for combating UAVs, costing up to $ 1K. This is also a serious niche. The experience of terrorist attacks with the help of drones at the Russian Khmeimim air base and the logistics point of the Russian Navy in Tartus showed that this is a very real threat.

                If you are thinking about disposable UAVs, their ideology translates into ordinary simple missiles (with or without the possibility of planning). And laser weapons will require an even greater increase in power ....

                  This is not true. There are also air reconnaissance UAVs, fire spotters, even, as it turned out, disposable bombers capable of hitting multiple targets in one flight.

                    Aerial reconnaissance is easier to do on a planning missile, because its task is to scan the surface at different wavelengths (optical and radio ranges) and return (which is preferable in electronic warfare conditions). Fire can be corrected by a parachute system, which can be delivered more quickly only by a missile (for a counter-battery response or an unexpected attack).
                    And are we talking about full-featured UAVs or crafts up to $ 1000? For example, your one-time bomber should have a carrying capacity and appropriate dimensions to raise navigation and sighting equipment (on a gyro-stabilized platform) and ammunition. Must fly more than 50 km (otherwise why UAV). Moreover, he has already become a major target. And the weight return of such an ashtray will be very low, which is associated with a low speed and a large bearing surface area (compared to a rocket).

              UAV itself is zero value, its purpose is information, it can be priceless! The laser can easily deprive this advantage of a UAV by simply blinding it.
              I often heard a complaint from friends of photographers, after shooting in a night club with a laser show, spots appear on the camera’s matrix, it’s absolutely safe from the laser !!! What to say about a combat laser? soldier

        Physics would be good for you. Power called 5 kW. This is not much and does not require a nuclear reactor. Now remember which drones dropped bombs on our base in Syria. Foam body and wings. Do you think it takes a lot to melt it?

                Valery, you forget that progress does not stand still and new technologies allow you to do what was considered impossible yesterday.

                I will give only one example, which nevertheless is directly related to the issue under discussion. More recently, in order to get a sharp photo in low light conditions, you had to put the camera on a strong and heavy stable tripod. Now, the same problem is being solved by embedding an optical stabilization system in the lens. The technology is such that such systems are now even embedded in cell cameras. Those. one and the same problem is solved by replacing a heavy and oversized tripod with a light and small-sized optical stabilization system.

            Naturally, a laser, like any device, has its own efficiency. In semiconductor, it can reach 20-25%. Even if you take at least 10%, then this is 50 kW of electric power. Not so much. The generator with associated systems fits perfectly on the Stryker platform. And do not forget that for non-fatal damage to the design of UAVs, for the withdrawal of their reconnaissance equipment, an order of magnitude lower power is sufficient.

        It’s raw, they couldn’t finish it, and the unmanned aerial vehicle that set it on fire flew at low speed and low. He was simply framed under this laser. The video is just an experimental sample, crude and unfinished, they still put it on the plane. I will say more, such a laser was put on a plane in the USSR, the collapse of the USSR slowed down all this.

            When they installed the laser systems, were you personally present? nobody put them, they still have not managed to create a powerful laser that would efficiently and instantly drown, destroy ships, missiles. aircraft. And those lighters that we saw are just toys. And their lasers hit nearby, THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO APPLY IT AS HOW THEY WILL BE DESTROYED BY SIMPLE GUNS AND ROCKETS.

              Because it’s short-range air defense. You can see from those experts who compare American combat lasers with the P-700 Granite and give out pearls that they are stupid.
              The laser is an inexpensive air defense and the Americans conducted its first tests on destroyers in 2013-14. Europeans also laughed at the Turks when they first used cast guns on the battlefield for the first time in the 13th century, by golly you remind me of these Europeans!

                Therefore, you need to read carefully what they write to you, I wrote that these lasers do not hit far, should I repeat this and give me a crush? Don't be dumb anymore. The Americans do not put them on destroyers, because they hit close, there is no sense in them, with such a laser you cannot hit a rocket or even a plane. But scouts to shoot down drones will go for this. And stop shoving your stupid video, clog up the topic. They really did not show anything. They, for the sake of showing off, shot down a drone, that's all they can do. They are weak, do not have the required power. Yes, and lasers are not the basis of air defense, I remind you that the combat units of the Satan rocket are coated with a special alloy that no laser in the world can burn through. Therefore, if someone makes heavy-duty lasers. then all the missiles will begin to be covered with this alloy, both cruise and ballistic (which Russia has already done) Once again I write what the Americans demonstrate has been done in the USSR. And what Putin showed is superior to American lasers in power, so the trailer is decent, there are much more than 5 kW.

                  Do not be rude dog! If you are talking humanly, be kind enough to answer humanly! Dog! Lasers were originally created as air defense and counter electronics of the enemy. Putin said a lot and did little. I don’t see the point of conducting a conversation with the mongrel, go bark in the yard with your own kind.

          Both goals defiantly self-destruct. Personally, I did not notice any structural damage with such recording quality. The laser only saw the target light.

          Americans make lasers based on industrial, welding and machine tools for cutting (cutting) metal. About dampness, as it were, the laser itself does not have to say. Otherwise, they would not be bought or produced.

    God forbid you to be in the sight of this "waffle". Not all they do is useless toys. Maybe not very effective, but still - a weapon. Moreover, only a prototype. They can bring to mind.

    Do not grind nonsense! This can’t be called a weapon yet ... Just think, they said they sent it ... Will they show it in action?
    Yeah ... wait ...
    Rewind, not so long ago there was an article about lasers, I laid out in the comments the conclusions of scientific physicists and not only ... I would have laid it out again, but for people like you who believe in Liquid Terminators, Star Wars and Predators, it's worth wasting time ...

        Here. And now we are reading friendly about femtosecond lasers. The energy in the pulse is small, and the power is large. It is not energy (power) that destroys, but the overcoming of critical parameters. What is unknown to you?

    Maybe I didn’t understand something, but how is the American laser worse than our GDP? I just don’t know his characteristics, and I don’t know ours either. I think like everyone else here, but it’s very strange to watch the exclamations of “Hurray” to our laser, and the strange laughter of a similar enemy laser.

    If you read carefully, you would not fall into a strange state of nifig of misunderstanding.
    The Russian laser is designed for what it is really capable of doing: blinding optics.
    The Americans are trying to make air defense out of it.

      As I understood from what they showed, the Russian laser is at least 6-7 times more powerful. And it’s quite capable of burning a mini-UAV. Those. similar tasks: short-range air defense

    This device is low-power, except for light drones, this laser will not bring anything down. No rockets, no planes. A power of 5 kW is about nothing, very small. Yes, and he hits close, a couple of kilometers. I wonder what kind of laser Russia has, what is the power, I'm talking about new weapons.

    Read this article on Army News:

    Installation is rather a means of "counter-ideological war." The United States is seriously betting on a demonstration of its technological superiority in the military, presenting it as one of the reasons for its leading position in the world. This complex demonstrates that the USA is not ahead of, but lagging behind (as it was during the USSR) in the development of weapons on new physical principles, thus blocking this "argument" of the Americans and even giving it some opposite effect.
