The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) is also working on future weapons. In this connection, he has also started making Electro Magnetic Railgun preparations. This is such a cannon that can hit a distance of 200 km. This is a deadly future weapon for the three land, naval and naval forces.
In this, not gunpowder, but an electromagnetic field is used to fire ammunition. DRDO has published a detailed report on Railgun in Technology Focus Journal. Work on this has been started in his laboratory, Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) in Pune.
how railgun works
The electromagnetic field is created by means of electric current. This generates kinetic energy, which throws the ball in the railgun at a speed of six to seven times the speed of sound. It is necessary that only those shells can be used in railguns that are capable of electromagnetic flow.
Former DRDO scientist Dr. Ravi Gupta says that many countries, including America and Russia, are working on Electro Magnetic railguns. China has also made similar claims. In such a situation, if India works on it, it will be essential to deal with future defense challenges.
The railgun is a thing ahead of the cannon. The firepower of the cannon is up to 50-60 km. The range of the railgun is up to 200 km.
- It can fly enemy ships at sea, avert missile attacks, or shoot down enemy aircraft.
It's not possible with a cannon. The things that can be done with small missiles can be done with them. Due to no use of gunpowder, the cost will come down.
