You also won't see the beam, as if you can see it, it's likely too scattered by clouds/smoke to work. But I bet at least one tester went "pew pew!"

A number of older fighter jets will be fitted out with defensive laser weapons by the mid 2020s.

If those jets are in good condition then it makes sense.

While they might not be cutting edge enough to handle air to air combat it makes sense fitting them with lasers for missile defence rather than having to build 500 new drones to do it.

They tried it against mortar and rocket... with relective paint on, it doesnt works well. It's not even that good to fool sensor and tracker if you put some contermeasure.
