Now There’s an Accessory for a Hybrid-Electric Vehicle...

LA Times. Northrop Grumman and United Defense Industries (maker of the Bradley fighting vehicle) are designing an armored vehicle with a laser to defend against attack. The battery-powered, solid-state laser would be used to destroy enemy rockets, artillery and mortar shells.

The laser is being developed by Century City-based Northrop, while United Defense will contribute a prototype of a hybrid diesel-and-electric-powered vehicle to carry the weapon, United Defense spokesman Jeff Van Keuren said.

The weapon will require an electrical power source, which the hybrid engine could supply, he said.
