Which will be the future?  Which is the replacement for the gun?  What shall dominate?

Let me go out of my way and say Rail guns and Charged Particle Beams are vastly superior to their competitors in every way, And will be the future.   Nothing can devastate like a Bullet moving so fast that it ignites the F***ing air.   The Particle cannon is also vastly superior to the Laser in force and Energy output.   Though It may be more complex.

Rail Gun will come first as the military is already working on those...

Missiles are a pretty non entity when it comes to things like Lasers and Particle Beams...

Lasers will be the next step as they are already in production but the power needed to supply a beam of sufficient strength is way out of any reach at the moment...

Particle Beams are way off, way, way, way off in the future

The Military is trying to fit a laser that can cut through tanks on the c-130.  America is trying to show off again.

P.S they already fitted a laser that can cut through a missile on a B 747 jumbo jet.
