F-35 Gun Pod


The US Marine Corps' F-35B just made history by firing its gun pod while flying for the first time. This weapon straps onto the belly of the aircraft, and enables the fighter the option to sacrifice a little stealth, drag, and range for 220-rounds of 25 mm firepower - a big upgrade from the 20 mm guns that current US fighter jets carry. One caveat: though F-35 can fire its gun while flying, the software update needed to properly aim the gun remains elusive, but should be coming later this year.

Blitzer Railgun

General Atomics Blitzer system is the world's first weaponized railgun planned for production. It basically launches a streamlined discarding sabot round designed by Boeing's Phantom Works at 1,600 m/s (5,200 ft/s) - approximately Mach 5 - with accelerations exceeding 60,000 gn.
