China is currently testing the world's most powerful naval gun and people with direct knowledge of a U.S. intelligence report say it will be ready for war by 2025.

I'll take proven navy over a navy with stolen tech any day but yes the art of war is deception and understanding your enemy.

This is somewhat concerning considering how powerful a rail gun can be.
I had a buddy that built a small one in his barn a few years back for a collage project. It was very weak but even that small a amount of power it had it was very powerful. He put concrete into the middle of a hay barrel about 300 yards away and blew a clean hole through it. Also that sound it made was very unique. I will never forget it.
More on topic though the Chinese are very VERY good at fast tracking projects to the point it is scary. Luckily I am not scared of them. They would rather beat the US through political and economic means. And to be honest they seem to have that down pretty well.
