    In the movie the final laser is 6 megawatts. The Navy HEL shot is 100kW, about 1/60th of the movie weapon. It's pretty obvious 100kW is more than enough to kill a human. With an effective range of dozens or hundreds of miles these lasers could be used for sniping missions.

    But according to this abstract, there are also "strategic" class lasers also in development in the "multi-megawatt" range...stuff still classified...

    They say the laser weapons are so fast and precise they can even detonate artillery shells midflight in seconds.
