I saw a cool video once on the discovery channel. It was a special on a newly made weapon by the United States military. It is a large cannon type weapon on large battleships. It is interesting in that it uses magnets to launch shells farther and faster than had it been used with gunpowder. It works by having two magnet rails in parallel that have the magnetic field pointing down the barrel towards the target.
