U.S. Navy takes aim at future conflicts with high-tech rail guns



This contraption sounds like it will make a solid contribution to mankind’s never-ending quest for a more better way to wage war.  It is a sad reality; the best defense often is indeed the possession of a scary-ass offense.  Go Navy!
