Sharks with Lasers got locked.......and we were just moving on to Tactical Dolphins and Turtles: The Special Forces of the Sea. This is obviously a thread that must continue.

 

What if we go past sea based animals, I'm thinking Laser Squirrels would be the next level in Tactical Animal Warfare, thoughts?

Chemical warfare skunks. Pretty much sells itself.

Would the MultiBear be considered a Tactical Animal, or just a Natural TurboPredator?

Interesting! It could almost be a Weapon of Mass Destruction if you armored it and like....air dropped it in

It does, but I still feel lasers have to be involved somehow to really grab the Tactical Animal market

In actuality, the US Navy trained dolphins to locate or recover warheads from the ocean floor, so it would not be a big leap to strap a warhead to the beluga head and train them to ram enemy shipping.

What about like, a paper machete grenade, but full of angry bees.

Seen the movie Defendor? Great movie and has something similar.

 

Everyone should see that movie really

I think we were making real progress on the shark lasers.

Tactical Nuclear Dolphin was suggested as a band name. Heck, I might have to start a band just to use it.

They're clearly a capable reconnaissance platform, though apparently a bit too friendly.

Tactical NUCLEAR Dolphin is indeed an improvement.

I was about to start a discussion on the effect of neutral buoyancy on GSWR too.  Boom, locked.  Lol.

Well OK then... given that the shark is a true fish vs. the alternative dolphin / narwhal / orca subjects being air breathing mammals, it’s reasonable to assume that the laser delivery platform is submerged at all times.  With that, the wouldn’t we need to consider that the weight of the laser as perceived by the shark would be reduced due to the laser also being submerged?  Therefore a lesser affect on GSWR?

Does that change with depth? Seems like it should.

I was thinking on my bee-grenade suggestion and the big problem is supply. They say bees are going away. 
So we need supply. Cheap supply. Possibly an invasive species. These damn pigeons we have (European ring-necked doves, iirc) come to mind. Not super stealthy (noise, damn them) but numerous and airborne. Geese seem to be fairly aggressive, and they fly in formation, and have quite a range. 
I say something with geese. Line their beaks with razor blades and set them loose?

Is this limited to just animal mounted weaponry because We can remote control the animals themselves.

A pack of sharks controlled by a targeting AI?

Defensive grizzly bears and wolves around the house?

Some animals can be controlled with external remote control, no need to stick electrodes in heads. 

Strap something to a cat, and lazer (pointer) guide it.  99% success rate, no training required.
