South Korea to deploy ‘StarWars’ laser weapons to deal with North Korean drones

Seoul: In a significant move, South Korea will deploy laser weapons to shoot down the drones by an increasingly aggressive North Korea this year as part of its “StarWars project”. This step will make it the first country to deploy and operate such weapons in the military, the country’s arms procurement agency said on Thursday.

The laser weapons have been developed by Hanwha Aerospace for the South Korean military and they are reportedly effective and cheap. Each laser shot costs 2,000 won ($1.45) and is quiet and invisible, according to the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA).
