Off The Rails

Rail Slug In Flight

Next up on the military’s to-do list? Installing railguns on all of their warships.

“…Assisted by GPS systems, the Navy’s railgun can shoot “non-explosive bullets at several times the speed of sound” at “speeds up to Mach 7″ with pinpoint accuracy….The Navy hopes to get its railgun to fire from over 200 miles by the time it’s ready for operation. According to Rear Admiral Nevin P. Carr, Jr., the chief of Naval Research, railguns cost much less than conventional missiles and make for more strategic warfare options.”

According to Gizmodo, the military is expected to have these systems in place by 2025, or shortly before Alternet.Org predicts the collapse of the American Empire.
