    Would Tesla make money as a Laser weapon provider? According to this article, 30 KW is enough to destroy drones. 150 KW is their next spec. That is super easy for Model S/X , even for 60D.

    Laser weapons edge toward use in US military


    And P100D with Ludicrous smart FUSE means that it can output 500 KW and destroy a missile in 2.5 seconds.

    Consider a vehicle can attack with its Laser Gun and run away with a speed of 100 mph

    Man, did I just give a idea that will break the world peace?

    I am certain that Elon has zero interest in building and selling any type of weapon. The ideas you express in your post are absurd and have nothing to do with Tesla.

    I hesistate to even respond to this nonsense, but last I checked there were no high powered lasers in any Tesla. Just because it has a big power source doesn't mean its anywhere close or has anything to do with a weapon.

    Now if you wanted to use an ICE as a weapon... that seems far easier what with all that splody liquid in the back.

    I'm sure they will sell powerpacks for energy weapons, but that is only the power source...
