What if railguns and coilguns are used in combat today, what would happen?

Why are you so obsessed with railguns? Nothing much would happen, because there wouldn't be the power for them.

I bet they are, but the governments of Earth must be hiding them.

I failed to mention your being negative, Nerdsoft. This man just asked a question, no reason for those sorts of comments.

You're always right, Nilo.

Anyways, they'd be kinda cool if it weren't for the fact that they're shooting people. Perhaps if we fought against robots.

I have a feeling that's how wars will be fought in the near future. Drones are the first step, and robots are just about a decade from being perfected. I think robotic suits will come first however, with a human inside an impenetrable titanium shell controlled by a computer - Or something along those lines. As Roy mentioned, like the Terminator trilogy (They even created a plastic that can automatically repair itself recently).

In truth, I hate all these new developments. Especially those that rendered battleships obsolete.
