The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) revealed a miniaturized electromagnetic railgun based pistol- and- rifle-sized synchronous induction coilgun prototypes.

These weapons’ technical capabilities were recently revealed in a demonstration session. The weapons are in prototype stage, state media reported Sunday.

Developed by the PLA Army Logistics University, the weapons, named Small Synchronous Induction Coilguns, come with pistol-sized, rifle-sized and land robot-mounted variants, according to a report by Chinese military news website js7tv.cn last week.
