It's Only A Matter Of Time Before Railguns Are Deployed On Navy Ships

While the U.S. Navy had announced a few years back it would take a prototype railgun to sea onboard the expeditionary fast transport USNS Trenton (JHSV-5) in 2016, the service may have to scupper those plans.

If the Navy does take the railgun out to sea on a fast transport, it will be in 2017 at the earliest. In lieu of testing the prototype rail gun in an at-sea environment, the Navy might instead proceed directly to developing an operational weapon system.  https://news.yahoo.com/only-matter-time-railguns-deployed-053000504.html
