The Raise Dead cast on this thread has made me realise I never showed my workings.

TL 13, Pen 75/7, Damage 60, Range 1250 km.

Striker says the laser has an input of 250 MW (Striker Bk 2, p 41, para. C.1.).

Laser output is input/4 = 250/4 = 62.5 MW (Striker Bk 3, p 19, para. H).

The ranges are (ibid, p 19, para. I):
Effective = output x 2 = 62.5 x 2 = 125 km
Long = output x 4 = 62.5 x 4 = 250 km
Extreme = output x 20 = 62.5 x 20 = 1250 km.

EDIT: Perhaps I should point out that this is for interface and surface combat only. The ranges for space combat remain the same.
