Surely microwaves?

Just need a bloody powerful, not particularly accurate microwave array.

Point in general drone direction, whack up power to 'roast swan' level and watch the drone flip out/short circuit/turn into firework display - at the distance they'd become a threat to a warship, should easily be in range.

Could you retask some of the comms gear for this function?

Icon for drones too!
