More Efficient Navy Railgun Blows The Competition Away!
The Navy’s newest high-tech weapon, the unbeatable Railgun. Railguns are faster and more efficient, they have no explosives, and they can destroy virtually anything, even 100 miles away. I wouldn’t want to be the other guy.
Navy Is Ready To put An Electric Railgun Into Shipboard Testing At Sea.
Railguns are highly specialized weapons that use electricity to fire projectiles at very high velocity using compound electric energy. The U.S. military is interested in them because they operate without the need to have piles of explosives lying around. The projectiles themselves have so much kinetic energy behind them that they don’t need to be explosive.
In just 10 milliseconds, the Navy’s railgun prototype accelerates projectiles to speeds in excess of Mach 6, six times the speed of sound, with 32 MJ of energy, resulting in a range of just over 200 kilometers. This far surpasses conventional naval weapons.
