Laser weapons rapidly fire pulses of light at a target. This causes the part of the target hit with the pulses to ablate into explosively expanding plasma. Requires MW power sources. Particularly effective in vacuum. Powered by a dedicated generator or a bank of supercapacitors, this weapon is useful against armoured vehicles and battlements.
