Fans of future wars, heads up! What might at first blush look like a poorly placed roman candle is actually proof positive that Boeing's Advanced Tactical Laser
(ATL) is ready to do some damage. Sure, when we heard last month that the company's tests at the White Sands Missile Range
were a success, we responded the same way that we always do: "video or it didn't happen." But now that we've seen it in action, we have one more question: When will its big brother, the 747-mounted ABL
, get its day in the limelight? We'll keep you posted.
