I know that China has centers for testing hypervelocity weapons like rail guns but, I've never heard of any confirmed reports of one being actually mounted on a ship.

   In China, they are preparing to test some new shipborne artillery system, many suggest that it could be a railgun, an electromagnetic mass accelerator.
   The size of the installation is quite impressive, for its testing at the shipyard in Wuhan, the landing craft of Pro2.02-III "Hyansiang" was re-equipped, on the deck of the ship there were also installed containers in which electrical equipment is supposed to be mounted, which should provide the railgun with additional electric power.
