Railgun

A 7 pound slug, goes through 4" steel plate at 5400mph and still travels 7miles without a powder charge?
We are seeing the future.

It'd be tough to conceal, and personally, I've got no beef with plate steel. Seriously there is a pretty interesting Wiki page on this technology.

i'd like to see it punch a hole through a ship... longways.

check out this video if you want your mind blown.
TED Talks Ramesh Raskar: Imaging at a Trillion Frames per Second - YouTube

“I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”

pain of discipline.
pain of regret.
take your pick.

wheres all that flame coming from? friction between the slug and air? or is it like a con trail, like a jet up it the air?

I've been hoping for years that someone will enter a railgun type launcher in the annual punkin chunkin event.

Might be difficult to keep the pumpkins from pie-ing though
