The Electromagnetic Launcher (EML) is an experimental aircraft weapon that fires a blast of electromagnetic energy for massive damage against any unit.

History

Strangereal

A miniaturized version of larger railguns, the Electromagnetic Launcher was a general-purpose weapon developed by Estovakia for the CFA-44 Nosferatu, along with the All Direction Multi-Purpose Missile system. By the time of the Emmeria-Estovakia War, sets of prototype EMLs had been produced for the aircraft, with Estovakian personnel studying ways of dealing with battery and barrel wear issues. Attacks with such launchers were announced with the radio signal "SLASH".[1]

Assault Horizon universe

In the Assault Horizon universe, an identical weapons system was manufactured by the Soviet Union during the 20th century under mysterious circumstances. The launchers were first deployed in combat against Western Block aircraft in the 1990s in an unspecified battlefield, and were described as "laser weapons" by a pilot who survived a confrontation with a CFA-44.[2]

Aircraft

Ace Combat Infinity

"A special weapon that fires bullets at extremely high speeds by accelerating them electromagnetically. Although it has no homing capabilities, each shot travels exceptionally fast and is very powerful. This allows for major damage to both air-to-air and air-to-ground targets, regardless of range, so long and timing are in alignment."

"A railgun that is capable of firing unguided bullets at extremely high speeds with the use of electromagnetic force. It can only fire single shots, but with precise timing and aiming, it can be used to inflict major damage to both long distance ground and aerial targets."

"This easy to aim unguided weapon employs long-range, ultra-high-velocity munitions. With training, this advanced weapon offers unparalleled destructive potential. A miniaturized combat rail gun, also referred to as an electro-magnetic launcher, the EML utilizes electromagnetism to propel munitions along a conduction rail at extremely high velocity. Future revisions offer much promise for current practical battery limitations and rail size."
