Silent Hunter Anti Drone Laser Weapon

INQUIRY
Description
       The Silent hunter uses an electrically powered fiber optic laser and according to one Poly official, has a maximum power that is between 30 and 100 kilowatts and a maximum range of four kilometers.[1] Although it is primarily designed to search, track, and destroy low-flying drones, it is powerful enough to "ablate" or penetrate five 2 millimeter steel plates at a range of 800 meters or a single 5 millimeter steel plate at 1000 meters.[2] The sheer bulk of the Silent  prevents its use on an aerial platform.
