Family business

Well they are building ships, particular naval ships. Could we see them get refitted with railguns?

also, could they potentially design ships/crafts/modules for space? their industry might be very useful for such an endovor. More so they could attempt to create superior/alternative aircraft. they could go big for zepplins.

If they are going to add a rail gun it should be like the prototype at Wallops Island, VA a NASA launch facility. Will hurl a 1000 pound, eight inch shell almost two hundred miles. It's the real deal. Going to be used on Aegus cruiser's for littoral warfare (marine invasion stuff).

You mean something like the theoretical device touted by General Atomics?

Actually there are 'just a few' problems with that proposal, things like barrel cooling and theoretical loss of kinetic energy and mass of the projectile during traverse to the target being two.
