Coil Strike

Boeing has announced the successful destruction of a test target by one of its airborne laser systems. Unfortunately this isn't the big one mounted in the uglyfied 747. To my knowledge, that one's likely still on the ground burning money instead of bad guys.

Bonus: Article strongly implies the laser is fired at supersonic speeds. I told you those DARPA people were clever bastards!
