A new video of the MTHEL (Mobile Tactical High Energy Laser) has just been released, showing it shooting “3 simultaneous mortar rounds in-flight, right out of the sky.” What are your thoughts? Watch after the jump.

MTHEL uses directed energy (laser beam) to intercept aerial targets such as rockets, missiles, artillery shells and other aerial threats. The target destruction is achieved by projecting a highly focused, high-power laser beam, delivered by a chemical laser, with enough energy to affect the target, and explode it in midair
