This is the US Military’s most powerful cannon the Electromagnetic Railgun, which can shoot up to 100 nautical miles at mach 7.5 and impacting the target at mach 5, using only energy as it’s propellant.
The high-velocity projectile will destroy land, sea, and air purely from it’s kinetic energy, rather than with conventional explosives warheads.
The Rail Gun is a 32 Megajoule Electro-magnetic laboratory rail gun being evaluated by the US Office of Naval Research, Naval Air Warfare and Weapons Department.
The US Navy is pursuing development of the launcher system through two industry teams -- General Atomics and BAE Systems - to reduce risk in the program and to foster innovation in next-generation shipboard weapons.
