This is only first gen. What kind of defenses will
evolve? Photoelectric fog? Like a smoke screen but
able to adsorb laser or even perhaps EMP? But then
the offense could use a frequency tuned to the fog to
vaporize a JIT path.
How to target over the horizon, which is easy enough
with radar and projectiles? For lasers, you would
have to position a reflector high enough to get the
beam to where you wanted. Then the reflector becomes
a target, of course. I'm reminded of that old SF
movie that was shown once per month on late night TV,
it seemed, through the '60's. The one in which
dastardly aliens holed up (literally) in some
hillside, are using beam weapons against scientists,
who build a targeting reflector array that returns the
energy to its source.
