The laser is a deuterium fluoride beam, which operates on such a wavelength to deliver intense heat for up to 5 km. Upon detecting a launched threat, the system’s radar identifies and tracks the target, while the laser precisely lases the target to destruction. This was designed and paid for by the nation of Israel using jewgold and is primarily for efficiently targeting and destroying rockets and missiles fired by groups parked on the other side. However get enough of them and they can take down planes and proper big boy missiles, a lot like Tesla coils farms vs mammoth tanks in C&C Red Alert.
