Chinese military set a huge gun on a warship
Probably many know that there are already skilled analogs of guns in which the shell accelerates not powder gases, and a magnetic field. Such a tool shoots further, the initial speed of the boob is several times higher, the firing range of such a tool is also noticeably higher. While none of the armies in the world has adopted a gun of this type. In Russia, all tests have not yet gone beyond the laboratory.
The foreign press found where that photo of the Chinese ship in the bow which is equipped with just a huge gun. Experts in military technology immediately described it as a ship electromagnetic gun. Gun why is not put on a military ship or battleship destroyer class, and the usual landing ship project 072-III Haiyang Shan. If this is not a test, but working sample of weapons, then the Chinese military first in the world began to use the Navy railgun
By the way, the development of such weapons are also conducted in England, India and the United States. In the laboratories of these countries tests of railgun
s being a very long time, but guns of this type do not put on ships in view of the fact that the power plant of ships does not allow to use the full power of the railgun
Energy is needed to pump the electromagnetic accelerator. It is thanks to the huge pumping energy, the shell accelerates to super high speeds, there are already analogues in which the speed of the booze reached the mark of 2500 m/s.If such a gun will shoot quite often, it can rightly be used as an anti-missile and anti-aircraft weapons on ships. The most important thing is the cost of the shot, in the case of the railgun
shot at times cheaper than conventional powder artillery.
If you believe what you read in the topic of Australian media, it turns out that even in 2015, China has already created quite economical in terms of consumption of the railgun
. Developing company with the state office of CASIC. In the US, the railgun
was trying to test in 2006, but the tests remained for 10 years tests. In 2016, the US once again returned to the theme of the railgun
and has just finished the first prototype to be installed on the deck of the ship. Ready, but do not put, and the Chinese are ready and put!
