The USA has been able to cut a plane in two while in flight, for at least 10 years. Lasers are becoming one of the main thrust for weapons development. The word around the military is that the US has jeep based lasers that can do damage from a little less than a mile away, by damage, stopping vehicles and of course killing people. But we have sonic weapons that can clear a field of battle among other weapons that are right out of star wars.
