That... would be a hell of a capability to have.

 

"The Gen 3 system General Atomics has built can be entirely contained – laser system, power system and thermal management (cooling) system – in a box roughly 12 feet long, four feet wide and two feet high."

 

I'll defer to those who know more about lasers than I do on how much damage a 150kw laser can do.
