The military/Lockheed Martin has invented a little tiny (4-5 inches long) self guided missile. It can hit a target 1.5 miles away within 9 inches of accuracy. The way it finds its target is by a laser that the gun that fires it points at the target.
Time to start carrying inflatable dolls or scarecrows with the infantry. Maybe they'll hit the straw men. The real soldiers can wear ghillie suits or dress like mounds of sand, and carry the fake soldiers on poles as they creep along.
I am wondering if such a missile might become confused by other laser pointers in the vicinity of the target. It would be a comical design flaw for an ordinary cat toy to foil one of these expensive gadgets.
I bet the Catz Force already thought of it.
