Chinese Warship Spotted Carrying Terrifying Next Generation Hypersonic Railgun

By Gerard du Cann

A CHINESE warship carrying a terrifying next generation hypersonic railgun suggests Beijing has beaten the world in developing the superweapon.

Rumours first circulated last year when images shared on social media showed the Haiyang Shan being loaded with the oddly shaped weapon.

The images suggest Beijing has beaten the United States and Russia to getting the next generation weapon into operational testing.





According to The Drive, official US reports suggest the Chinese cannon can hit targets nearly 125 miles away, and the People's Liberation Army plans to have their navy equipped with the weapon by 2025.

A railgun is a type of weapon that uses powerful electromagnets to accelerate projectiles to very high speeds.

1. That's pretty cool technology

They probably stole it from us.

3. I know ex-pats who have worked tech jobs in/with China

China's SOLE reason to work with any foreign company is to steal intellectual property, technology and processes from them.
