Well... not really going to get into this deeply... too political... so I will only touch on it briefly. I remember reading the US issuing their troops in Iraq with laser dazzler to be attached to their M4. And those are not ban.I personally find the UN protocol a bit ridiculous. If low-power "blinding" lasers are not allowed, what about high power ones that are just as capable of being used as blinding lasers? I think the dazzler on the Type-99 got away with it because the PLA claimed that they were used to blind enemy tank sensors when it is perfectly capable of blinding infantry men as well.
But when China create something new and with potential sales... these are banned.
You do the equation.:coffee:
