Have you seen the PLA Navy’s latest whizzbang terror toy? Described as a “tactical laser system,” it was recently featured in a PR puff piece on China’s state-owned mouthpiece channel, CCTV. According to reports, it will be deployed on the PLA Navy’s Type 055 destroyers as a replacement for the fleet’s old HHQ-10 surface-to-air missiles.

Which is all well and good, but let me ask you again: Have you seen it? I mean, have you actually looked at it? Because when you do, you might notice something interesting. Namely, it bears a striking resemblance to the U.S. Navy’s Laser Weapon System (LaWS).
