I had a professor who worked on a weaponized laser in the 80s, funded by reagans star wars project.

they built their own power plant to charge up a massive bank of capacitors the size of 55 gallon drums... Basically a railgun on an epic scale. I forget the details now but it basically atomized a penny and shoot the copper particles into a plastic block however far away. In other words, almost no damage, limited range, and massive in size so no real use.

It eventually morphed into what a have today though. :p
