According to Chinese media reports, high-power electromagnetic instruments of their own development will soon be installed on the military ships of the fleet of the Fleet.
For the first time, the vessel with an experimental cannon was noticed last year, and recently published new photo test photos on the open sea. The Chinese version of the rail has a huge battle and high accuracy. Thanks to the electromagnetic force, the gun can affect the target at a distance of 200 km, and the shell’s flight rate is about 2.5 km / s, which is 7.5 faster than sound.
Shells will not be equipped with warheads with an explosive, since their huge power is enough to apply the necessary damage. The absence of additional amplifiers reduces the cost of their production. Other countries also develop similar weapons systems, but have not yet been reported to achieve significant success in this direction. Therefore, China has every chance of becoming the first state having a fleet with electromagnetic weapons.
So far, for sure the timing of the completion of the tests and the installation of working advanced weapons to ships. Nevertheless, the presence of own developments in this direction can make the navy of the country is the most progressive.
Another large-scale project of China is a plan for creating
