Default make it so number1

The Navy for the first time last week successfully tested a solid-state high-energy laser from a ship. The beam, which was aimed at a boat moving through turbulent Pacific Ocean waters, set the target's engine on fire.

I saw a video not so long ago of a kid who put pieces of glass on a satellite disc. The concentrated sun beam that it created was warm enough to melt metal.

Perfectly fixed and of a very sufficient thickness, yes. On a moving (bobbing) target, not a chance...

I dont understand why these oil companies don't hire security for the dangerous parts of the journey. It would be a fraction of the cost of what they pay out in ransoms.

8 rail guns positioned around the ship should do the trick

I would sign up for that job!!
