This video showcases the latest in the U.S. Navy
's arsenal, and features a $500 million rail gun, new lasers, and the famous Tomahawk missile among other weapons. The rail gun is shown firing projectiles at extreme speeds that weigh up to 7 pounds, doing all their damage based on insane velocity and momentum, instead of explosives. The gun can shoot insane ranges for a projectile weapon, and is sure to cause some damage with its penetration.
Perhaps even more impressive was the new laser, which this video shows taking down an unmanned drone, and a smaller boat. There is something =inherently terrifying about a weapon we can't even see operating with our own eyes, and yet is still devastating. Not to mention that real life lasers being a thing means the future is here. Throw in the power of good old fashioned missiles, torpedos, and a fighter jet or two, and the U.S. Navy remains a force not to be trifled with.
