 5.) Rail Guns

Rail guns are a revolutionary weapons platform that uses electromagnetism to launch projectiles at incredible speeds. The projectiles are large hunks of metal with no explosive materials. Although in the research stages, BAE Systems developed a prototype for the U.S. Navy. Such weapons could be fired from ships at targets hundreds of miles inland with greater granular firepower than cruise missiles at a fraction of the cost. They are also much harder to shoot down.
