China develops magnetic plasma gun with potential range of more than 100 km

According to information disseminated by the state site GlobalTimes.c n, and taken up by the site ArmyRecognition, China has undertaken the design of a new type of cannon, halfway between the traditional powder cannon and the Rail Gun. : the magnetic plasma cannon.

For this, the Chinese authorities have launched a vast consultation aimed at collecting project proposals for the experimentation of a new type of artillery system, using a plasma encapsulated in a magnetic field, very significantly reducing the mechanical constraints which apply between the barrel tube and the shell when firing the propellant charge.
