laser cannon!

YES!

Boeing's new laser cannon can melt a hole in a tank from five miles away and 10,000 feet up—and it’s ready to fly this year.

Can lightsabers be far behind? (Too bad you can't actually see a laser beam unless it travels through, say, smoke.) Note that the actual article (above, I've merely quoted the article's subtitle) notes that the laser has yet to be tested, so it may be premature to describe the laser cannon as "ready."

Now I'm having a "Real Genius" flashback.

Boeing's next project; tanks that reflect lasers.
