Default Navy Rail Gun

Has anyone heard anything about this lately? The first ones were supposed to be deployed on underway test-beds in 2016 but that news is three years old. I haven't seen and haven't been able to find any updated data.

This article may supply you with some answers. Sounds like the Navy may skip the test-bed and go directly to the USS LBJ in 2018.
