Chinese Military is Now Equipped with Laser Rifles
According to a recent report; Chinese soldiers are now equipped with laser guns.
The report reads that the laser rifles can be used in a wide range of situations e.g. PY132A, WJG-202, and BBQ-905 laser rifles can be used to destroy slow UAVs, sensors, security cameras, thermal imagers on enemy vehicles, and more.
However, one important thing to note here is that the 1998 Protocol of Blinding Laser Weapons forbids the usage of laser guns and blinding weapons to be used on people. Even if used to destroy sensors or imagers on vehicles, humans can get hurt as collateral damage.
While there seems to be a long way until we see laser rifles being used by every major military power out there, it does seem likely that we are headed to an era of modern warfare that we have so used to seeing in popular video games and movies out there.
