Lasers will help older fighters stay alive while flying the deadly skies.
今日の英語の習慣化の題材は、ちょっと恐ろしい新兵器、しかもFighter (戦闘機) 搭載のLaser(レーザー)兵器です。
'Put' の使い方、これで、日本語訳は搭載する と訳せるんですよ...
The U.S. Air Force envisions placing laser weapon systems on fighter jets by the mid-2020s. The service is working on a own laser weapon, SHiELD, a pod-mounted laser that will protect fighters from incoming missiles.
✈ You love badass planes. So do we. Let's nerd out over them together.
The system will likely be used—at first, anyway—to protect older fighters that can’t take advantage of stealth to hide from the enemy.
Look Out, World: America Has a New Fighter Jet
The system is called SHiELD, or Self-Protect High Energy Laser Demonstrator. National Defense reports SHiELD is envisioned as a pod-mounted laser developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory, with support from Lockheed Martin. Mounted on the fuselage or wing of a fighter jet, TALWS could shoot down incoming air-to-air and surface-to-air missiles. Lockheed Martin is working on a separate weapon, Tactical Airborne Laser Weapon System (TALWS) will use program data from SHiELD.
