The US Army is developing a powerful cannon capable of shooting a projectile more than 1,150 miles – the same distance between Nashville, Tennessee and New York City.

The military agency is set to demonstrate a prototype of the long-range weapon in 2023 and will then determine if it is ready for further tests.

If successful, the war machine will give the US Arm an advantage it needs to measure up with major opponents like China and Russia who have invested more than $215 billion in military operations combined.
