Looks like the Navy is taking some ideas from Star Wars with their weapons they have developed/ are delevoping. Among the various weapon are new lasers that are designed to shoot down aerial drones, and electric guns that fire projectiles at hypersonic speeds.

 

The Navy plans to have these in their artillery within the next two years. Why the big futuristic change? It actually costs less compared to missiles and smart bombs which eventually run out.
