The most powerful slingshot: The US Navy’s new aircraft launch system


The US Navy has come up with a new aircraft launch system called EMALS (Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System) which is just a euphemism for a slingshot on steroids.


Compared to ye olde steam catapults, this new launch system is relatively lighter, smaller and requires less maintenance. It provides greater speed, acceleration and precision… all this while being Eco-friendly. The Naval Air Warfare Center also reported that this system took over 15 years in the making.


The main purpose of this new aircraft launch system is to help more aircraft take off, manned or unmanned. Results show up to 25% faster!

So exactly how powerful is the strongest slingshot in the world? Take a look for yourself.
