The article states that the B2 Super Battle Droid uses Laser weaponry, while the B2 article states they use Blaster weaponry. If this article is wrong, then it needs amendment. Unsigned comment by DarthMRN (talk • contribs).

  • This article is correct. The B2s used a laser cannon. -LtNOWIS 00:20, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Why is this in the catagory of laser weapons when it is not a laser? --Scaeme 20:23, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

It's plasma, a form of metal that is past the stage of white hot

  • This confuses completely!! In this article is written that lasers are more powerful than blasters, but the author of the "blaster"-article says that blasters are more powerful. Now I don't know what to believe. -- 21:53, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Come on Edit

Though the beam from a laser cannon was not itself a laser since the beam moved slower than light speed and had an explosive nature, it is probable that a laser cannon was so named because it used a laser in the energizing of its blaster gas.[source?]

So, ships are not ships because we all know that there is no sound in space and the ships clearly have sound. They are some sort of... Musical stelar thing.... Sorry but lasers ARE LASERS!

Laser Physics Edit

The assumption that Lasers move at the speed of light only is out of date.

Lasers in real life can move as fast as 300 times the speed of light or as slow as 17 meters per seconded.

Star Wars Laser can and are accurately called Lasers... As a race we have much to learn about everything. The likely hood that Lasers can do what they do in Star Wars is great if we continue advancing in the Laser science field.

Also Lasers can and are manipulated by magnetic fields in real life. Laser bolts could be a the same thing as a Blaster bolt, but instead of Plasma being turned into a Particle beam, and Magnetically bottled, the Laser is Magnetically bottled possible as a add counter measure or for guidance against shielded craft.

Used by Pirates before Military? Edit

I find it surprising that it is stated that pirates started using laser cannons in raids, and then military forces started mounting them on their ships in defense. Are there any sources confirming this order of usage? I would think that when they first came into industry that military forces would start using them immediately.

i think someone added that, it looks very much like speculation to me...Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

"After a time, pirates adapted this technology to their ships[source?], increasing their accuracy so they could be effectively used in raids. For defense against such pirates, companies started to develop proper laser weaponry, making it more accurate while still retaining its destructiveness. The military quickly picked up on this weaponry, too. " seems very fannon, umm how would pirates develop this technology faster than corporations with vast resources or militaries with entire civilizations behind them... i highly doubt a group of ragtag pirates could invent such technology first... it defies logic... plus there is no source behind it. i vote it be removed


How can we improve this section? Edit

Divide them into categories sounds like a good idea, but I don't have the reference material to do so... A list of lasers, categorized by use also is an idea, but I'm not sure how the rest would think about that and I'm not doing anything that big without being sure it's not getting nominated for deletion within 10 minutes...
