China Built Electromagnetic Catapult Takeoff Technology for Aircraft Carrier

Posted by Dylan Malyasov on


China built electromagnetic catapult takeoff technology for aircraft carrier.

The main advantage is that this system allows for a more graded acceleration, inducing less stress on the aircraft’s airframe.
