No we can fit them on trucks. But really for an offensive weapon a laser makes less economic sense than even the powered armor does. It's also far easier to render useless through countermeasures than a gun is. I think its pretty unlikely that lasers will ever be attractive as primary offensive weapons for ground based infantry. Power armor will probably get made as proof of concept then be re-designed as remote operated and/or autonomous drones.
