The U.S. Navy’s Railgun Is Nearly Dead in the Water

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

The U.S. Navy’s $500 million electromagnetic railgun—capable of slinging projectiles at hypersonic speeds—lacks funding and has no coherent plan to deploy on warships. The Navy is instead pursuing an offshoot of the railgun, a hypervelocity projectile it can fire from existing gun systems. https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/navy-ships/a32291935/navy-railgun-failure/
