Rail guns. http://www.guns.com/the-navys-railgun-lives-on-video.html :hail:
Another article on the rail gun.http://defensetech.org/page/2/
Notice the muzzle energy.A megajoule is equal to a 1 ton car traveling at 100 mph.
That's insane. That's the force of 32 one ton cars going 100 MPH!
That's not muzzle energy, that's how much it takes to power one of those bad boys (all the electromagnets). Kinda like the flux capacitor needing 1.21 jiggawatts.
I remember this...crazy
I remember when the Navy was testing the phalanx system on a carrier. It looked like R2D2 with a woodie.
Over 4000 rpm of depleted uranium projectiles.
So now they have the rail gun. I find it incredible that we can be the most advanced weapon builder in the world and still struggle with the most mundane problems at home.
I wonder if they build a rail gun in .30 caliber for mounting on my truck?:hail:
