China claims breakthrough in electromagnetic rail gun
In a stunning display of technological prowess, Chinese navy engineers have claimed to have developed an electromagnetic rail gun that can fire multiple projectiles at hypersonic speeds without any damage.
This breakthrough, detailed in a recent paper, serves as a new feat for the country across the globe, heralding a new era in naval warfare and potentially altering the balance of power on the world stage.
120 rounds at Mach 6 speeds
As SCMP reports, the rail gun, firing projectiles at a mind-boggling 2 kilometers per second (Mach 6), possesses a phenomenal range of 100-200 kilometers – matching the capabilities of conventional artillery. During testing, it flawlessly fired 120 rounds, showcasing its exceptional durability and operational efficiency, a feat that eluded even the most advanced American prototypes.
