    DEW cannot instill pure fear on the enemy with the biggus dickus' raw power.

    Technically a weapon that uses kinetic or chemical energy is also an energy weapon.

      not direct energy weapons, though

    Because they're way simpler and cheaper to operate than dropping PGM's from an aircraft (requires trained pilots, maintenance crew and airbases). This is especially important when more and more armies have more mobile SAM's and MANPADs

      I can’t see how calculating trajectory of a projectile is easier than point-and-shoot scalar beams

        The range and effectiveness of lasers are affected by the weather and can't hit anything that It doesn't have direct line of sight. On top of the fact that the main way the laser damages anything is through heat, so It can't do anything to anything that has ceramic/chobham armor (most modern tanks)

        Directed Energy Weapons are subject to the same law of inverse squares as other waveforms. That means the effectiveness is a function of 1/x^2 where x is distance to target. Therefor to get double the range you need 4x the energy, whereas kinetic weapons have a more linear energy:range relationship.

        how are you planning to fire mah lazer at targets over the horizon? DIRECTED energy weapons are incompatible with INDIRECT fire

    >railguns
    are a meme, much less energy output than missiles, zero durability, too much energy consumption
    >coilguns
    have no durability issue but even worse energy efficiency/consumption issues
    >lasers
    have potential, but are still a long way from large-scale deployment

      oh man, I forgot I'm on PrepHole where everyone is a minimum of ten years behind the curve on what's currently being issued

        I said "large scale"
        I'm fully aware research has progressed enough for lasers to be actually deployed, but we're still years away from seeing them deployed for many uses (portable weapons, AA defenses, that kind of stuff)

    Explosion is release of energy you dumbo, rockets are energy weapons

    Energy weapons are retarded + only useful in direct fire application + its way cheaper to just drop a giant dick of explosives on your enemy

      It’s way cheaper to fire a pulse of energy at the enemy than to build a guided missile

        It's not when you consider you need line of sight.

      Scalar waves don’t propagate through the electromagnetic field and don’t encounter resistance. Potentials propagate instantly. An interference zone between scalar beams can be produced at any distance, through any medium, even directly through the Earth, without any energy transmission through space.
