British Military Successfully Tests New DragonFire Laser Weapon System

The UK Ministry of Defense (MOD) announced on Friday that it had achieved the country’s first high-power firing of a laser weapon against aerial targets during a trial at the MOD’s Hebrides Range.

The DragonFire laser directed energy weapon (LDEW) system, developed through a £100 million ($126 million) joint investment by the MOD and industry partners, demonstrated pinpoint accuracy and low long-term costs, marking a milestone in the advancement of laser-directed energy weaponry.

DragonFire, classified in its range but designed as a line-of-sight weapon, can engage any visible target, showcasing its potential as a revolutionary tool in the battlespace. The precision achieved by DragonFire is exemplified by its ability to hit a £1 coin from a kilometer away.
