You mean the missiles and lasers carried by fighter jets?
Fighter jets don't have high-powered laser guns, at least not at the moment. The Israeli defence is working on them.

Remember, we aren't catching an ICBM, we are intercepting it. It's coming towards us.
Like the average joe trying to hit a home run when playing with an MLB pitcher.

Right, so what’s the version of aircraft you feel is good enough in today’s operating environment?

I feel the US military needs better high-powered laser guns.

Priorities Doc.

So shouldn't the US military invest more in laser guns?
