Navy rail gun in new video game...

5 posts in this topic

Doesn't a rail gun's projectile rely solely on magnetic force to be propelled? I might be wrong, but whats with the explosion coming out of the cannon end?

Apparently what appears to be an explosion coming from the rail gun's muzzle is what happens to the atmosphere as the projectile exits at a speed of mach 7.  It is in fact an electromagnetically fired projectile as explained further in this video, which also has some other interesting Navy weapons systems in development.
