The US Navy is testing out its newest weapon. Firing projectiles at over seven times the speed of sound, the electromagnetic rail gun is able to hit targets over 100 miles away. Costing $25,000, the weapon is relatively inexpensive compared to missiles, which can costs upwards of half a million dollars. The new rail gun has finished its testing on land, and is set to be deployed on ships by 2016. RT's Ameera David takes a look at some incredible footage of the weapon.
