why was there so much fire coming out behind it in the first few frames...

i thought it was driven by electricity/magnetic force... i know these are real so im not doubting it, just curious....

 

also im sure they are far beyond the "almost getting there" stage....

We're all in strung out shape, but stay frosty, and alert. We can't afford to let one of those bastards in here.

The projectile upon launch moves so fast that it actually lights the oxygen in the air around it on fire.

I had wondered the same thing. If you noticed the projectile had stuff fly off of it once it was fired as well. I wonder if it basically melted the metal because of the high heat that it would generate.

I know that the railgun is electromagnetic, jackass. I was referring to the energy generated by the projectile, not its method of propulsion.

 but don't understand ! but I'll leave that for others! Instead, why don't you nwatch what war used to be like ....say  WWI. the Horror  of 20,000

 dead on the 1 day of the battle of the somme, the talk to me about Guns, and the 2nd amend ment! or How about High school  kids taking guns

 to School! Gee... what for ?????? fun I suppose!

And half of them probably would have flunked out.

But we are about to get 100% of a railgun.
We're all in it together, kid.

Christo, they need to work on the shape of the projectile.
It's flight path is so erratic!
