Submarine Offensive Laser Test
SUBMARINES: Always silent; always strange.
A no-brainer concept. The stuff of science was once only fiction (DARPA). Is this still fiction like this book from August 2003: By Dawn's Early Light, Vol. 1? Publisher's description: On the Bay of Bengal a civilian research vessel witnesses a submarine fire a laser into the sky. Before they can process what they see, the sub blasts them out of the water and captures the lone survivor. Immediately, one of the United States spy satellites becomes inoperative, and seemingly disappears.

An offensive submarine weapon (unannounced) or hypothetical, blue-green communications laser? Mystery aircraft undamaged.

Effective range is easily hundreds of miles into the atmosphere and beyond with nuclear plant power.
