Military Weapons The World Didn’t Think Were Possible

Electromagnetic Railgun (EMRG)


U.S. Navy

Dubbed the “future of naval combat,” the Electromagnetic Railgun (EMRG) was made to replace all powder guns on naval ships. This EMRG is so fast; this is a frame taken from a high-speed video camera. It fired at 10.64 megajoules with a muzzle velocity of 2520 meters per second.

With the power of kinetic energy, an EMRG uses electromagnetism to fire projectiles at speeds up to 5,600 mph. The Department of the Navy invested a lot into their EMRG program to help develop technologies that will aid the Navy and Marines out in combat.
