Submission Army creates a directed lightning bolt weapon->

Sparticus789 writes: Army researchers at Picatinny Labs in New Jersey have developed a prototype weapon which uses a directed lightning bolt to destroy vehicles and unexploded ordinance. The weapon works on the premise that "A target, an enemy vehicle or even some types of unexploded ordnance, would be a better conductor than the ground it sits on."

Are we one step closer to C&C:Red Alert Tesla coils?
