Army Men Wiki

The Solar Beam is a TanRepublicFlag Tan Superweapon, only used in Army Men: Air Combat.

The Solar Beam appears as a white beam of light that melts through plastic army men, Bugs, or anything else that gets in its path. Plastro uses the weapon, primarily during beach levels, to try to kill the Scientists before they can be rescued by Captain William Blade. The weapon itself is never seen in gameplay, only the beam it produces.

It is one of the only tan superweapons in any of the games which is introduced and then never destroyed.
