Mirror- The US military are in the process of testing a new electromagnetic gun that can fire ammo at 4,500mph.
The Navy have developed a weapon that will use a ship’s self-generated power to fire at long-range targets.
This means that the electromagnetic railgun launcher uses electricity instead of chemical propellants.
Magnetic fields created by high electrical currents accelerate a sliding metal conductor, or armature, between two rails to launch projectiles at 4,500mph.
The railgun is powered by electricity that has been generated by the ship and stored in a ‘pulse power system’.
Next, an electric pulse is sent to the railgun, creating an electromagnetic force accelerating the projectile up to Mach 6.
Using its extreme speed on impact, the kinetic energy warhead eliminates the hazards of high explosives being kept on the ship, and on land, reduces the chance of unexploded bombs which could potentially be detonated.
According to the Office of Naval Research : “The railgun is a true warfighter game changer.
“Wide-area coverage and exceptionally quick response will extend the reach and lethality of ships armed with this technology.”
Meanwhile in North Korea……
LOL. What a loser North Korea is. Honestly they might be the country I’m sick of the most because they’re so god damn tiny and Kim Jong who ever the fuck has the biggest Napoleon complex and is constantly shouting threats at the top of his lung. Meanwhile he can’t get a rocket to fly high enough to punch a flock of pigeon mean while we’re launching projectiles at Mach 6 speeds fast enough to knock the food off of Kim Jung Un’s fork before it reaches his mouth. At this point I know with Trump at the head of the country people are just crying out saying their world is gonna end. Well guess what, anyone that comes at us, we’re gonna swat their missiles out of the sky at 4,500 mph. Keep doing you, NK, cause we’re doing just fine.
