    The tank weapons of the future may be able to fire without any help from unstable, dangerous chemical reagents. Instead they may use electromagnetic guns. In an electromagnetic gun, the projectile is pushed by an electromagnetic field pressure. In principle this force can be propagated at the speed of light, so in principle, the electromagnetic gun should be able to produce much higher velocities ... View full abstract»
