If it's ChiCom, are you sure it's not just a red blinking light like Buzz Lightyear's laser?
Sorry, couldn't help it.

But it does sound like an interesting defense, mighty expensive, though. Isn't there a move away from laser guided anti-armor systems and towards infrared targetting? Just wondering how useful a system like that would actually be (especially for a country like our own, where our enemies don't have access to much sophisticated arms).

never mind the optics on the missile, a well managed laser can probably screw them up...

Since a laser tends to heat things up, it would wash out the thermal sights of the missile.

That site is a great resource, I've been browsing around on it making a shopping list of all the gear I'll need for my army when I become Emporer of Antartica.
