The Pulse Laser (PLSL) is a directed-energy weapon that appeared in Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere and Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.
In Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere, the Pulse Laser causes slightly higher damage and has better range than the standard Vulcan, and has a similar rate of fire.
In Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, the Pulse Lasers bear a resemblance to Machine Gun Pods; however, instead of bullets, laser bursts are fired directly ahead of the plane's position.
