  1. Are you surprised there are critical people here? Are you surprised there are people who want to prevent war because they want to live? Are you surprised there are actually people who don’t believe in this propaganda nonsense? It’s nothing more than an upsized maglev train. It’s dated, costs money, and has no purpose. It’s a piece of junk that ought to be scrapped as soon as possible. Those military researchers are hypochondric pedophiles that have an ego from here to mars.

  2. @Wowmasta21
    well….., dunno. I’ll stick with my idea that no new weapons are needed.
    And if it was about saving money…., have you thought of all the money they will spend on research? And all the lost advantages if all those scientists did something better?
    Hey, there’s a typing error in your phrase „you’re a dumbass“. It should have been „I am a dumbass“.

  3. @dadada72 1.True but so is LOVE 2.FALSE we question it every day in so many ways! 3.RETARDED! Cause if we all held a gun at the same time pointed and fired at each other we would definitely disrupt nature! You sir have no logic because you have no brain!

  4. @morkatem Lol you didnt understand, it wasnt directed towards you thats probably why. Those are just points verigs made in prior statements i put them together so he could read them over and see how little sense they make. So yea thanks for agreeing with me you sir do have a brain.

  5. @VERGIS92 You said: ‚we are not dependent on food?‘ Of course we are dependent on food, that’s an incredibly imbecile statement. But you are actually stating at this forum that we should shoot a part of the population of the earth, PREFERABLY NOT AMERICANS. Maybe homeless or prisoners, or pedophiles, BUT NOT NORMAL HARD-WORKING, GOOD-LOOKING AMERICANS. That’s completely insane and has no connection with the world whatsoever. I’m not going to argua any further with you unless you change

  6. @foreverromanian Dont fuck with the US, but you still have to get the good old brits to build it for you 😉

    Im joking of course. What a crazy video!

  7. @HaloPokemon5Master its good that you at least know the difference between range and speed. maybe you are not 2 dumb and after some googling be able to figure out what was i talking about.
    i’ll give you a hint: range is not measured in m/s

  8. @HaloPokemon5Master its grammar. not physics or math. if you even know what are those. they probably teach you only the holy bible in your state subsidized school. i am sorry. there must be some internet courses, i am certain. try them.

  9. @petunized >instantly assumes I’m American
    Man, that got a chuckle out of me. So far all you’ve done is put your foot into your mouth.

    Physics = how the universe (or multiple universes, if you believe in alternate realities) works.

    Math = study of quantity, shape, and structure. Usually bores the hell out of little kids in elementary school.

  10. @HaloPokemon5Master wierdo, i’ve noticed already that you are chatty and stupid. you dont have to try that hard. please, just educate yourself about distance and speed. and in what units they are measured. than you will be able to understand my postings. till than, i am over with you.

  11. @Helldiver450 dun forget that the military takes those advancements and creates things that everyone uses, for example they created a way to link multiple computers together which led to the internet

  12. @jmbbao ‚Our taxes set in use to create weapons to blow US citizens in next revolution‘ – ironically it’s being made by BAE (British Aerospace), so you are paying the brits to quell your future revolution. ‚No taxation without rep‘-SCCHHUMMM! (angry crowd disintegrates)

  13. @EnigmaHood I’m not saying there is no friction, I just don’t think that friction can do THAT much fire. However, I’ve read some wikipedia about railgun, and it told me that railgun and gauss gun are different things, and as I’ve got that flame is caused by plazma. I’m not really sure what is it but it’s good explanation for me 🙂 Better then friction powa

  14. @callowaymotorcompany Upon further examination, you might actually be right. Still searching for the exact chemical formula. But you’re still a butthurt moron. 🙂

  15. @EnigmaHood Calm down. You were wrong. It’s not the end of the world.

    You keep talking about ignorance and yet you were the one with shitty science and the knowledge of a child. Ironic.

    The aluminum is a byproduct of the projectile being shot, stupid. How is it being added to cause a chemical reaction? God, you’re a moron.

    No, they were killed by the impact explosion, not the heat given off when it burned in the atmosphere and gave off heat -_- Seriously, how stupid are you?

  16. They could have built a train that travels not at 8000 km/h but at let’s say 4000 km/h. We could travel between Europe and US in less than two hours, to Japan in 3 or 4 hours. They could have spent all that money and research on a cure for a currently uncureable disease. But NO, instead they build weapons to kill even more people. Is it just me or it’s really disgusting.

  17. @soulrom BAE Systems Inc, which made this railgun, is an American subsidiary of the English company. So yeah still American made. Besides we don’t know if this will be the final production variant. They still have to test the General Atomics version, which by the way is from an all American company.

  18. @soulrom Actually, BAE Systems employs more persons in the United States than they do in any other country. Also, the U.S. division (BAE Systems Inc) operates quite independently from their British parent under requirements of the US DoD (look up BAE System Inc SSA on wikipedia).

  20. @jfceb3 Yeah, I worked for BAE (not in the UK) for many many years so I’m very aware of what influence head office does and doesn’t have outside of the UK. Sure there are heaps of Americans working in wholly owned subsidiaries – I worked with many of them – but they’re all very aware the shots are called from the UK, even if the money comes from the US.

  23. @soulrom BAE holds a liberal view on nationality and being an employee you shouldn’t be so feisty to separate the UK and the US sides of the business

    BAE systems is a UK founded company but is also a global company valuing its employees be it any nationality. The UK and US sectors do not control one another and neither have a say in each other business, instead work together with a broader skills base

    BAE is floated on the UK stock exchange but both sides of the Business are Equals and are one

  26. @soulrom Ditto, worked in Platform Solutions. In Engineering, we didn’t have any perceivable influence from the UK on any of the programs I worked (including two DoD programs).

  29. @jfceb3 As a project manager I was audited by UK office and their auditors Lloyds of London at each phase transition in a project, as were all large projects I knew of in US (once the buyouts had promulgated through), Australia, Malaysia and UAE. I apologize if that wasn’t your experience, I was just speaking from my experience working in these places for BAE.

  32. This is all very nice and fast and badass. Flames coming from the rear and all. But in the end we’re talking about a weapon. What’s more: this is designed using old technology. These ‚researchers‘ think they have solved a problem (i.e. America can stay the most powerful nation at reduced costs). They sell their technology to the army assholes who are made to believe they bought a new superweapon, that’s useless. They post a nice video to keep tax payers happy.

  33. Could somone explain to me why there are flames?
    By my understanding there should not be any combustion present, is it caused by the huge volumes of heat from the friction?

  34. @MrThompyson From my understanding yes. You are correct in that there is no combustion, and i think its just heat generated from the friction of the projectile on the air

  35. I dont understand the dumb asses who say „We should be researching on alternate energy sources rabblerabllerablle!!!!“

    What the hell do you think were doing? Just because we’re advancing in a cerain department in weaponry doesnt mean we arent researching energy sources…I dont understand how the 2 are even connected?

  36. @aknonnerd If someone is shooting another ship then you have to have a damn good reason. Those damn good reasons generally include having as many people die in 1 shot as possible, correct?

  37. Thumbs up if goldbullet50 is a sissy. Shut your hateful mouth and come into a conversation with something constructive to say. You worry so much about us, probably to forget that your family is full of a bunch of inbreeds. How about we give Iran WMDs and see if America is the only country to be attacked. Dipshit

  38. @CLAVIN42 you chat so much bullshit, 300 aircraft did u pull that figure out your morbidly obese ass?

    300,000-330,000 personnel
    1770 fighters
    249 Bombers
    11 Airborne Early Warning
    1923 Trainer Aircraft
    507 Transport and Cargo
    18 Aerial Refueling
    632 Helicopters
    26 Unmanned aerial vehicles

    The worlds FIVE largest military spenders are recognised to be WORLD POWERS.
    god damn google your shit

  40. @goldbullet50 First off your not even from United States. And second Iran would have never of created it. They would of had an accident at the test facility and they would have lost everything in a massive explosion. O ya… go fuck yourself

  41. @deathpyre Most likely, the electromagnetic propulsion technology isn’t perfected yet (obviously). So when accelerating the slug to full speed it actually breaks down the slug itself. You’ll notice when he loads it, it has those large flanges on the rear of the slug which appear to have vaporized during the firing process. But I’m no expert. >.>

  42. @swertinge07 While it does seem easy, the rail gun is far easier as it requires no timing mechanism to ensure the coils fire in sequence. A coil gun is, potentially, more durable and less prone to catastrophic failure due to little to no friction, but the rail gun is so easy to fire you could actually build a crappy one yourself out of batteries and conductive wire, while you would need a lot more equipment to make a gauss gun.

  43. @definty It’s caused by the speed of the object and, possibly, by the sheer amount of electricity involved. Remember, oxygen is a combustible gas. With enough heat, the air itself can burn.

  44. @swertinge07 If you get a working model going, put it on Youtube 😀

    More people would be interested in science if they realized what kind of cool stuff they can build with it.

  45. @TheJaparican
    >We’re already powerful
    Only BECAUSE they are researching weapons like this. Keeping at the edge of tech to get ahead. Just take a look at DARPA. Projects like MAHEM, those are the ones which are ahead.
    >Poverty Kings
    Makes no sense
    (Also, this gun was made by a British company. BAE. British Aeronautical Engineering.)

  46. Lol. The weapons developed 20 years ago can annihilate anything today or in the forseable future. Whats the point of this gun except to be awesome?…..and to fight aliens…..

  47. who wants to have somethingl ike this, this is horrible. it costs millions of dollars and its only purpose is destruction and death…. and even therefore it would suck caus it can only be fired on one spot in one direktion
